Milk bottles, motor oil containers, orange juice containers, and many other bottles are extruded in the form of a tube. The tube is cut to length and placed in a mold where it is blown to the shape of the container.
The process requires a dedicated temperature control because a too hot plastic decomposes and a too cold material will be insufficiently plasticized. The plastic temperature is measured at the exit of the extruder prior to going into the mold.
- Providing a proper wall thickness, color, and mold conformity
- Insuring high productivity and less plastic scrap
- Increasing production speed and throughput quantity
