How to control molding during blow molding?

In the fast-paced world of blow molding, achieving consistent product quality and maximizing efficiency are essential for success. At the heart of this process lies the art of molding control. Molding control refers to the precise management of key parameters and variables during the blow molding process to ensure optimal outcomes. It holds the power to elevate product quality to new heights while driving operational efficiency. In this article, we will delve into the significance of molding control and explore how it can revolutionize the blow molding industry. Get ready to unlock the secrets to unleashing perfection in every mold.

Blow molding process for plastic melting and plasticizing, extrusion tube billet, blowing tube billet, cooling, opening, taking out products, dressing, inspection. The control of product molding can be carried out from the following 4 aspects.

1, blowing pressure, in the process of blowing, through the compressed air has two functions: one is to use the pressure of compressed air to make the semi-molten tube billet blow and close to the mold cavity wall, forming the required shape; The other is to play a cooling role in blow molding products. Air pressure depends on the type of plastic and billet temperature, generally controlled in 0.2 ~ 1.0MPa. For plastics with low melt viscosity and easy deformation, the lower value is taken. For the plastics with high melt viscosity, the higher value is taken, and the higher wall thickness of the billet is also taken. Blowing pressure is also related to the volume of the product, large volume products should use higher blowing pressure, small volume products should use smaller blowing pressure. The most suitable blowing pressure, should be able to make the product after forming shape, pattern and so on clear performance.

2, blowing speed, in order to shorten the blowing time, so that it is conducive to products to obtain more uniform thickness and better appearance, it is required to inject large flow of air with low airflow speed, to ensure that the billet can expand evenly and quickly in the mold cavity, shorten the cooling time in the mold cavity, and is conducive to improving the performance of products. The low airflow speed can also avoid the Venduri effect in the blank forming a local vacuum, so that the blank deflated phenomenon. This can be ensured by the use of larger blowpipes.

3, blowing ratio, blowing ratio refers to the maximum diameter of the plastic parts and the diameter of the billet. When the size and quality of the billet is fixed, the larger the size of the product, the larger the billet blowing ratio, but the thinner the product thickness. Usually according to the type of plastic, the nature, the shape and size of the product and the size of the billet to determine the size of the blowing ratio. With the increase of blowing ratio, product thickness becomes thinner, strength and stiffness decrease, and molding becomes difficult.

4, blow mold temperature, blow mold temperature has a greater impact on the quality of products (especially appearance quality). Usually mold temperature distribution should be uniform, as far as possible to make uniform cooling products. The mold temperature is related to the type of plastic, the thickness and size of the product. For different kinds of plastics, the temperature control of air-blown mold is shown in Table 2-1. There are a few plastic mold temperature should be controlled in stages. The production practice has proved that the mold temperature is too low, the elongation of the plastic at the clip is reduced, it is not easy to blow, and the products are thickened in this part. At the same time, the molding is difficult, and the outline and pattern of the product surface are not clear; The mold temperature is too high, the cooling time is prolonged, the production cycle is increased, and the productivity is decreased. At this time, if the cooling is not enough, it will also cause the product demoulding deformation, the shrinkage rate increases, and the surface luster becomes worse. Generally, for plastics with large molecular chain rigidity, mold temperature should be higher; For plastics with large molecular chain flexibility, mold temperature should be low.

In the ever-evolving landscape of blow molding, continuous improvement is the key to staying ahead of the curve. Molding control is no exception. By continuously seeking ways to refine and optimize the molding process, manufacturers can unlock new levels of efficiency and quality. It is crucial to keep a finger on the pulse of emerging trends and technologies that can revolutionize molding control.

The blow molding industry is witnessing exciting advancements, such as real-time monitoring systems, advanced sensors, and predictive analytics. These innovations offer unprecedented insights into the molding process, enabling manufacturers to make data-driven decisions and proactively address any deviations or challenges.

As we embrace the era of smart manufacturing, it is essential for professionals in the blow molding industry to stay updated with the latest developments. By embracing innovative approaches and incorporating cutting-edge technologies, manufacturers can not only enhance molding control but also unlock new growth opportunities and gain a competitive edge.

In conclusion, molding control is the cornerstone of successful blow molding. By understanding the importance of molding control, embracing continuous improvement, and staying abreast of emerging trends, manufacturers can elevate their production processes to new heights. Let us embark on this journey of excellence together, where molding control becomes an art form and unleashing perfection becomes the norm.
