Blow molding is a manufacturing technique that uses thermoplastic materials (be it polymer or resin) and shapes them into molten tubes. These tubes are then inserted inside a mold cavity and inflated. The inflating portion of the tube takes the shape of the cavity inside the mold. Once the tube has filled up the entire cavity, it is cooled down and extracted out of the mold.
njection molding is a process that is popular due to its ease and reliability. It is typically used for making parts and components, especially those made of plastic, glass or polymers (thermosetting and thermoplastic).
With rapid technological developments in the field of software, electronics, and automation, the manufacturing industry has witnessed widespread disruption in its operating processes. Traditional manufacturing techniques are being increasingly replaced with digital and automated processes.
The extrusion process is limited to manufacturing objects with only a fixed cross-sectional profile. It is typically used to make straight metallic parts or tubes of varying lengths. Some of the common profiles that are used in extrusion are a solid circle, rectangular, T-shape, L-shape, and tubular profile.
Invest casting is a famous manufacturing technique that uses a wax pattern which is coated with refractory ceramic materials. The technique is based on the ancient process of lost-wax-casting. The ceramic material that is poured which then hardens and takes the shape of the wax pattern.
Sand casting is one of the most successful manufacturing techniques in the world. Sand casting uses temporary sand molds which are used to manufacture complex metallic or alloy parts. The sand mold is destroyed in the process, and the metallic component is subsequently extracted.
