PLASTIC MANUFACTURING CAPABILITIES

Injection Molding — A molding process whereby a heat-softened polymer is injected from a Plastifier into a relatively cool cavity, which gives the article the desired shape.
Application: Primarily used in making closures and components.

(IBM) Injection Blow Molding — A molding process in which heat-softened polymer is injected from a Plastifier into a mold cavity creating a Preform, which is then transferred to a Blow Mold where air is blown into the Preform, forcing it to take the shape of the Blow Mold cavity.
Application: Ideal for bottles up to 4 oz. (120 mL). Larger bottles are possible.

(ISBM) Injection Stretch Blow Molding — A molding process whereby Preforms are introduced into a cavity, stretched axially by a Stretch Rod, and then blow circumferentially to the shape of the Blow Mold cavity.
Applicaton: Ideal for bottles 4 oz. (120 mL) & larger.

(EBM) Extrusion Blow Molding — A molding process whereby heat-softened polymer is forced into the shape of a hollow tube. While still soft, a mold closes around the tube, pinching the top and bottom of the tube closed. A Blow Pin is introduced, and air is forced through the pin forcing the tube to take the shape of the Blow Mold cavity.
Application: Ideal for bottles 4 oz. (120 mL) & larger.
