Extrusion Processes

Extrusion is the deformation of either metal or plastic forced under pressure through a die to create a shape. This unique Extrusion Processes program is an introduction to both plastic extrusion and metal extrusion processes. The Metal Extrusion segment looks at hot extrusion, press components, lubrication, force capacity, and the metals that are typically hot extruded. Both warm and cold extrusion processes are featured too, including indirect extrusion, combination extrusion, and impact extrusion. The Plastic Extrusion segment explores components of the screw extrusion machine and common feedstock and materials. The two most prevalent plastic extrusion processes, profile extrusion and blown film extrusion, are also extensively detailed.

Plastic Blow Molding

Plastic blow molding processes are the most popular methods used to produce hollow products out of thermoplastic materials. Blow molding is performed using a wide variety of production methods, including: extrusion blow molding, injection blow molding, and advanced blow molding processes. This Plastic Blow Molding program provides a detailed discussion of each of these processes, presenting a clear understanding of the similarities and differences between each of them. In addition, information on parison and preform production is provided. The Extrusion Blow Molding segment looks at both intermittent extrusion blow molding and continuous extrusion blow molding processes. The extrusion head and die assembly and machine types, such as the reciprocal screw style blow molding machine, and the accumulator style blow molding machine are featured. The Injection Blow Molding segment examines the various stations in the process, including the injector station, the blow station, and the strip, or eject, station. The Advanced Blow Molding Processes segment details both single and two-stage bi-axial stretch blow molding, and the co-extrusion blow molding processes.
