The transportation market has been changing quite a bit, and blow-molded plastic parts are becoming important for several reasons. For one thing, blow-molding services costs less and the process of creating parts with it is much cheaper than other manufacturing processes, like thermoforming or rotational molds. Blow molded automotive parts are more durable and less expensive to make.
The Benefits of Using Blow Molding for Automotive Parts
Blow molding produces parts with greater impact and structural integrity. It is ideal for all types of pipes and vent ducts, because it can handle almost any detail of geometry and automatically fills any voids between components. Parts made in this manner for the transport industry are used in most modern vehicles, such as step entry plates, handles, gas tanks, vent hoses, and other OEM parts.
