For the designing of polyethylene terephthalate or PET containers, there are generally two methodologies available. The first one is extrusion blow molding and the second one is injection stretch blow molding. Both these technologies help in shaping a wide range of utility plastic containers that we see around almost every day in our daily life.
Both the technologies are used for making PET bottles using molds for ASB machines, but injection molding technology is considered to be more preferable to extrusion blow molding. This article aims at exploring some major advantages of injection molding methodology in the following points:
Injection molding allows for more details even in complex geometries
The molds for 50 MB machine used in the process of injection molding are subjected to very high pressure. Because of this high pressure, the plastic inside the mold gets pressed harder in comparison to any other molding process. It is this very pressure that allows for adding a large amount of detailing to the geometry of products to be shaped.
What’s more, using injection molding methodology, even the parts of the most complex geometry can be designed and manufactured with ease. Creating the same products using other methodologies might prove to be extremely complicated and expensive.
More efficient and effective than all others
In injection molding technology, once any particular molds for ASB machines or any other machines are made in sync with the customer requirements on an automated pressing set-up, the entire cycle gets faster than all other methods available. Plastic injection molding is a more efficient and effective process than all others and it hardly takes time to manufacture a wide range of plastic parts using a single mold.
Can process a wide range of plastic parts simultaneously
Making use of plastic injection molding methodology for manufacturing plastic parts is beneficial in terms of the ability to use a wide range of plastic parts simultaneously. This can be achieved by putting into use the molds for 50MB machine and a process called co-injection molding. With the same in place, there’s no concern regarding using only a specific type of plastic during the operations.
Unmatched flexibility in material and color selection
The selection of the right kind of color and material is a very crucial step while manufacturing plastic parts and products. The choices are endless and every time there is a new challenge that the manufacturers face. With the injection molding technology in place, manufacturers can make any change as and when required without any hassle. Due to the advances in polymers in recent years, there is an availability of a large number of resins to choose from.
