It is specialized in manufacturing, designing in super size blow molding machines and blow moulds with capacity from 200L upto 20,000L for 1-6 layers productions(up to 10 layers).

8.What should be paid attention to when labeling the mold?

In the mold label process is the combination of the labelling operation and blow molding or injection molding process, but the plastic products after the paste label process.In the process of die-marking, the pre-printed and die-cut labels are stacked in sheet form and placed in the label box;With the opening of the mold, the label is pulled up one by one by the mechanical hand and positioned in the open mold. The printing surface of the label is inward, the surface coated with solid adhesive is outward, and the label is firmly attached to the mold wall by vacuum negative pressure or electrostatic adsorption.

When the mold closes, the melted plastic resin enters the mold and forms. At this time, the temperature in the mold is relatively high, and the label of the prototype container, the solid adhesive starts to melt and integrate with the plastic container.When the mold is opened again, the plastic container is formed, and the label and the container become one part of the molding container. 

The biggest difference between inner label and traditional label is the different way of labeling.The inner label is not pasted after the plastic container is fully formed, but is formed once with the container.Due to the different labeling methods, there are certain requirements on the characteristics of labels used in the in-mold labeling process:

1.The label should have a certain degree of stiffness to ensure that the label is not bent or deformed during the transmission process; 

2.The surface of the label should be smooth, non-adhesion between the labels, there should be no static electricity, to ensure that only one label is absorbed by the manipulator at a time; 

3.Label edge should be neat, label can not be damaged on both sides; 

4.The printing label USES ink and gloss to withstand high pressure and high temperature.

About Installation and Maintenance

1.What preparation does the blow molding machine need before starting up?

1.Clean and lubricate the movement parts, such as guide rail, Chains and rack rod;

2.Check every fastener whether it is loose;

3.Check whether there’s someone in risky area before start up the main hydraulic pump:

1) Check the heating temperature. Total heating time is12-16 hours for die head and 4-6 hours for extruder;

Notice: Heating time is different of different model machine. Please ask the training engineer for details of heating time.

2) Check whether the autoloader in working condition. Clean the filters each shift;

3) Check the air compressor pressure. 0.8mpa 1 Mpa. Drain out the water of air storage tank and water separator;

4) Check the water pressure of mold and extruders. Make sure cooling circulation is ok;

5) Check the raw matenal for blow molding which should match the technical requirements;

6) Check cooling water and pneumatic system, Make sure water and air is unblocked and no leakage;

7) Operator should have professional training so that ensure the machine running normally.

2.What should you pay attention to when the blow molding machine starts up?

You can start running the machine when machine-heating time is enouch.

1)Test machine in dry cycle(without product). make sure all movements are correct and no unexpected collision.

2) Start extruders in low speed. 10HZ-15HZ is suggested. Observe the motor ampere. Extruders automatically stop if ampere goes beyond the limit, extruder will stop. Please recheck each heating zone.

3)Make sure all heaters working correctly. Increase heating time or improve heating temperature if necessary.

3.What should you pay attention to when the blow molding machine is shut down?

In the process of production, blow molding machine should stop operation timely when maintenance,mold changing and unexpected circumstances etc.

When blow molding machine shut down:

Firstly tum the button of speeding adjusting to zero position, then the speed of motor will be reduced quickly and stop.

Press the stop button, stop AC drives or inverter output, if the machine shut down for a long time, turn off general power for AC drive and inverter.

At the end of each processes, push out the melt material in the accumulator by manual operation.

Switch off the hydraulic pump motor, the total power source, air compressor and the cooling water.

4.How is the cooling water pipe maintained of the water tank blow molding machine?

The in wall of the cooling water pipeline of the extruder feed section and other part would be easly to form scaling and the external easy to corrosion rust.

Instead of cooling, too much pipeline blocked the channel, and seriously corrosion will cause the leakage.

Therefore must adopt descaling and the enterprises are encouraged to softening the cooling water if anti-corrosion cooling measure conditions permit.

5.Why when tank comes out, it is very hot and easily out of shape?

①Check the cooling water. Loosen the outlet water pipes of the mold and venting the air inside of the mold.
② Increase cooling time.
③ Adjust the thickness profile. Reduce the thickness accordingly.

6.Accumulator is full but it seems difficult to push?

This happens when machine newly heating. Set a bigger gap(WEIGHT)and push out material manually.

After two shots, the die core will be hot enough and it will be easy for pushing.

7.What should I do if the pump is noisy?

①Oil level is low. Air was mixed with oil going to pump. Add more oil. Make sure suction pipe was tightened.

②Filter were blocked. Clean the filters, including suction filter, high pressure filter and low pressure filter

8.The maintenance for the cooling water pipeline of the blow molding machine

The in wall of the cooling water pipeline of the extruder feed section and other part would be easily to form scaling and the external easy to corrosion rust.

Instead of cooling, too much pipeline blocked the channel, and seriously corrosion will cause the leakage.

Therefore must adopt descaling andanti-corrosion cooling measure, the enterprises are encouraged to softening the cooling water if conditions permit.
