Thin-walled container molding
Thin-walled container molding is used widely for refill containers and containers designed to reduce refuse volume. Off-centering is prone to occur during the stretch-blow phase when molding ultra-thin oval containers, but Aoki's Direct Heatcon-based mold mechanism eliminates off-centering, enabling the molding of containers with walls of even thickness.
Molding technology FAQ
Can materials other than PET be used?
Yes, PP can also be used for molding thin-walled containers. Choice of material grade might be limited depending on required thinness.
What is the minimum achievable thinness?
For PET, containers with a wall thickness of under 0.1mm can be molded.
What kind of containers is thin-walled molding ideal for?
It is used for refill containers, containers designed to reduce refuse volume, and other such applications.
