While blow molding is ideal for producing a variety of plastic parts, it is not the right choice for some.
The following checklist will help you determine if blow molding is right for your application:
- Is my part hollow?
- Can my part’s wall thickness have slight variations?
- Would the mold be relatively regular in shape, i.e., without asymmetrical or deep cavities?
- In the case of containers or bottles, would the diameter of the opening be smaller than that of the rest of the part?
- Is my part’s volume between approximately 2ml and 1 gallon?
If you answered “yes” to all of these questions, your part may be successfully blow molded. Please contact us to discuss your application further. To learn more about when blow molding is appropriate for your application, read our case studies.
