Analysis of the Orientation and Development Trend of Blow Molding

Blow molding is forming by blowing and expanding preheated plastic products in a molding mold.

Blow molding originated in World War I, and the technology of blowing balloons developed into blow molding technology. After years of development, it has gradually been applied to packaging, toys, medical, automobiles, construction, and other fields.

Blow molding has now become one of the mainstream technologies in the plastic molding industry.

1. Orientation of blow molding
The orientation of blow molding mainly includes the following three aspects:

①. Production efficiency direction:
The development trend of blow molding technology is high efficiency, fast speed, and automation, and industrial-level production is achieved in production efficiency;

②. Environmental protection direction:
With the popularization of environmental awareness, the energy-saving and environmental protection characteristics of blow molding are gradually valued, and the product development focuses on material recycling and reducing waste gas emissions;

③. Continuous innovation direction:
While the technology is constantly innovating, the application scope of blow molding is also constantly expanding, constantly introducing new ideas, and developing from a single field to multiple fields.
