Injection molding and blow molding are two processing technologies for mold products, but their processing technologies are different and have their own characteristics. In short, the injection mold uses the "injection + pressure" mode, and the blow mold uses the "injection + blow" mode. Injection molding is a solid core, while blow molding is a hollow core. In addition, a mold manufactured by an injection molding process has a gate portion, and a mold manufactured by a blow molding process has an uneven surface with a blowout port. The following editor will take you to understand in detail what is an injection mold and what is a blow mold? What is the difference between the two?
1. Injection mold injection is thermoplastic injection molding. The method is to melt the plastic material and then inject it into the film cavity. After the molten plastic enters the mold, it will be cold formed and processed into the desired shape. The final shape is usually the appearance of the final product and does not require other processing. In addition, the injection molding process can well control the details, for example, protrusions, ribs, threads and other parts can be formed in one step of injection molding.
2. Blow molding, also known as hollow blow molding, is a rapidly developing plastic processing method. The processing principle is as follows. A thermoplastic resin in a heated and softened state or a tubular plastic parison obtained by injection molding is put into a mold, and then compressed air is injected after closing the mold to expand the plastic parison and adhere to the inner wall of the mold. , Then cooled and demolded, and finally get the required hollow product. It is worth mentioning that the manufacturing principle of blown film is very similar in principle to blow molding of hollow products, but its production does not use molds, which is completely different from processing injection molds in this respect. From the perspective of the classification of plastic processing technology, the molding process of blown film is usually included in the extrusion process. According to the manufacturing method of the parison, blow molding can be divided into extrusion blow molding and injection blow molding. Newly developed multilayer blow molding and stretch blow molding.
3.Through the above introduction, the difference between injection mold and blow mold, I believe everyone has a certain understanding of these two processing technologies. In fact, the main difference between injection molds and blow molds lies in the form of product display. Products manufactured through the injection molding process are generally thicker, relatively simple to manufacture, and require relatively low raw materials. The blow molding process is different. The products produced are thinner, more transparent, and slight shortcomings are easy to see.
Therefore, the processing requirements for blow molds are relatively high, and the toughness and stretchability of raw materials have certain requirements. Injection molds and blow molds are widely used in daily life, and each has its own characteristics and advantages. Processing technology is also improving year by year, and has good development prospects in the future.
Friends who are concerned about China's high-quality hollow blow molding machine manufacturers can contact me and I will teach you how to choose equipment.
This is PLC type rotary blow molding machine, the machine operation and temperature are controlled by PLC system. This type machine could work more stable. Every hour could produce 3000 pieces ice lolly tubes.
This high speed rotary blow molding machine could produce 3L/ 5L/ 12L hollow bottles. Our machine advantages: 1, Energy saving, manpower saving: every year save around 200,000 RMB 2, High production: every machine could achieve 1-3 times higher production than normal hydraulic machine 3, Mold: compare with the same end product hydraulic machine, save mold cost around 50%; the internal part of the mold adopts high speed cooling system. 4, This machine equipped with high technology remote control system, which could achieve checking and maintain machines from far distance.
This type of machine is suitable to produce HDPE type bottles with cutting neck. For example milk bottles, yogurt bottles, etc. The advantage of this machine is that this type machine achieved full automatic process. Equipped with cutting system, customer could get final product out of machine directly.
