Blow molding: It is a molding method for manufacturing hollow plastic products. It is a secondary molding technology that uses a gas pressure to inflate a parison that is still in a semi-molten state in a cavity into a hollow product.
Hollow blow molding is divided into injection blow molding, extrusion blow molding and stretch blow molding.
Injection blow molding uses injection molding to first make a plastic with a bottomed parison, and then moves the parison into a blow mold for blow molding. During the extrusion blow molding process, the tube blank is directly extruded by the extruder and hangs in a pre-separated cavity installed directly below the head; when the sagging parison reaches the specified length, the mold is closed immediately, and The incision of the mold cuts the tube blank; the compressed air is passed through the small holes on the parting surface of the mold, so that the parison is inflated against the mold wall and formed; maintaining the pressure, after the product is cooled and shaped in the cavity, the mold is opened to remove the product
(1) Extrusion-blow molding: simple production method, high output, low accuracy, and more applications.
(2) Injection-blow molding: high precision, good quality, high price, suitable for large-scale products.
(1) ordinary blow molding
(2) Stretch blow molding: The product is stretched, with high strength and good air tightness.
a. Extrusion-stretching-blow molding (referred to as extrusion-stretching-blowing)
b. Injection-stretching-blow molding (referred to as note-pull-blow)
(1) Single-layer blow molding
(2) Multi-layer blow molding: good comprehensive performance, complex production, suitable for product packaging with high packaging requirements

Adjust the head clearance based on the wall thickness distribution 2. Check heater position and function 3. Align the center of the machine head with the center of the mold 4. Calibrate the head or mold to vertical|
|The wall thickness of the finished product is too thin compared to the die gap||Parison sag elongation 2. The resin temperature is too high 3. The inflation ratio is too large||Increase extrusion temperature 2. Reduce resin temperature 3. Reduce the inflation ratio appropriately|
|The finished product is deformed in the mold||Blow molding time is too short 2. Intake time is too slow||Extended blow molding time 2. Blow up immediately after closing the mold|
