How to Choose The Right Extrusion Blow Moulding Machine
Presented by CAM-PLAS
Extrusion blow moulding has long been a simple and efficient way to create plastic products en masse. This process allows businesses to maximise production while minimising costs. For this reason, extrusion blow moulding machines have become incredibly popular in manufacturing and processing businesses across Australia.
What is extrusion blow moulding?
Extrusion blow moulding is a manufacturing process which uses melted plastic pellets and compressed air to inflate the plastic and blow it into a certain shape (using a mould). This process is done by extrusion blow moulding machines, and is used to create a range of everyday products such as plastic bottles, food containers, personal care containers, pharmaceutical containers, and industrial packaging.
If you’re on the hunt for an extrusion blow moulding machine, it’s important to know what you’re looking for to get the best return on investment. Here are 3 things to consider to ensure you choose the right machine for your business.
1. Consider its Automation Capabilities
To get the biggest return on investment for your machine, it’s important to consider both your current and future needs. And one of the most important aspects when looking forward is automation capabilities. A machine with more automation will allow you to increase production and reduce the cost of machine operators, but it may come at a higher upfront cost. Automation is an investment to keep in mind when determining the right machine for your business.
2: Understand the Machine’s Production Capacity
The point of buying an extrusion blow moulding machine is to produce moulded plastic products as quickly and accurately as possible. Consider your production now and where you want it to be in the future when choosing your machine.
