A reciprocating blow molding machine is a type of plastic processing equipment that is perfect for manufacturing a wide range of products, from bottles and containers to automotive parts and toys. These machines use a reciprocating screw to melt and extrude plastic resin, which is then blown into a mold to create the desired shape. Most commonly, this process uses High Density Polyethylene (HDPE). You can see and learn more about the reciprocating blow molding machines that Nordic Machinery has to offer here.
What is High Density Polyethylene (HDPE)?
HDPE is used in a vast array of products, including bottles for consumer liquids such as milk jugs, shampoo bottles, household chemical containers, water bottles and containers for different types of oils. Other products that are created using HDPE are coolers, fuel tanks, industrial drums, and much more.
What is the process that a reciprocating blow molding machine that uses HDPE called? Blow Molding uses HDPE to manufacture “parisons”, which are the creation of molded, softened thermoplastic hollow forms.
Why use HDPE instead of PVC? HDPE is at least 2,000 times more resistant to damage or degradation over time than PVC. It is less likely to crack or fail over time. A reciprocating blow molding machine using HDPE is the recommended way to manufacture any type of plastic container.
Reciprocating Blow Molding Machine Benefits and Advantages
One of the main advantages of using a reciprocating blow molding machine versus other types of blow molding machine is their versatility. You can use them to create a wide range of products in different sizes and shapes, making them suitable for many different industries and plastic products. This versatility allows manufacturers to produce a variety of products on a single machine, reducing the need for multiple machines and improving efficiency.

Another key benefit of reciprocating blow molding machines is their speed. These machines are capable of producing high volumes of products in a short amount of time, making them ideal for high-volume manufacturing operations. This helps you meet tight deadlines and reduce production costs.
In addition to their versatility and speed, reciprocating blow molding machines are also known for their precision and accuracy. These machines use advanced control systems to ensure that the blow molding process is performed consistently and accurately, resulting in high-quality products with tight tolerances. Higher precision means less do-overs, saving you even more time.
All of these benefits make using a reciprocating blow molding machine with HDPE the most efficient way to create plastic bottle and jugs as well as parts for other plastic products.
Overall, reciprocating blow molding machines are valuable tools if you need to produce high volumes of plastic products quickly and accurately. Their versatility, speed, and precision make them suitable for a wide range of applications, from consumer products and containers to automotive parts.
