PET Molds Industry Moulds Indian Economy
Posted by AcmeDisys on July 30th, 2018
Ever since science and technology heralded innovative applications of polymers and plastics for products like wire spools, containers, bottle caps, automotive parts and components, toys, combs, modular furniture etc. there has been no looking back. So much so, today, the mode of packaging thousands of both edible and non-edible items is mostly with PET (polyethylene terephthalate) as the base material. All these developments were achieved due to the marvels of the injection molding molds.
Another hallmark of this technological process was the high volume of productivity from a tiny source. Based on several characteristics like the service life known as shots, number cavities, the grade of steel used in moulding, hardness gained after heat treatment and the qualities of cooling and ejection, a mold is classified.
As for the process, the pre-molded or machined components are inserted into the cavity while the mold is open, allowing the material injected in the next cycle to form and solidify around them. An injection mold maker keeps these aspects in view and tools it accordingly. Indeed, it is task that calls for highest degree of precision right from design to manufacture every pre-form mold.
When it comes to the usage of the end product, i.e. PET bottles and containers the advantages are manifold as compared to metals, glass and ceramic which were the conventional materials for packaging over three decades ago. Some of the gainful factors are PET material are:
Experts and market analysts have predicted that polymer consumption by Indian plastic industry will double over next six years with the volume to probably touch the mark of 20 million MT by 2020 which in turn will lend a boost to FMCG sector. The market of PET bottles is around Rs 4,000 crore and is growing at the rate of 20 per cent. Breweries and pharmaceutical companies have shifted their packaging precedence to plastics as it is a more convenient vis-à-vis the fragile glass. Apart from being unbreakable, a PET container occupies lesser space, and fancied by consumers. Another major problem encountered while using glass as the medium has been the metal closure which is comparatively very expensive.
A notable feature of PET bottling industry in India has been the high degree of total quality management practised by the mold makers which has earned them accolades from around the globe. To cite an example, a leading New Delhi-based company that is engaged in design, development and manufacture of highly rated preform molds focuses on their ultimate applications on a wide range of machines under different parameters. Thus it ensures that ample spares and allied components are provided to the end-user for optimum productivity. Depending on factors of temperature as well as the mold core and cavity, some of these durable spares are sealing rings for cylinders, insulation caps for nozzles and neck splits among others. And in the process, the mold makers in India are poised to reach newer heights in the future.Also See: Pet Bottles, Mold Makers, Mold Maker, Maker Keeps, Mold, Pet, Process
