Blow Molded Cases are Cost Effective & Durable

Blow Molded Cases Using Extrusion MoldingIf you are looking for a strong, durable, and cost effective carrying case solution, look no farther than blow molded cases. Instead of injection molded plastics, blow molded cases use a different process that blows special thermoplastics into a metal mold. Because the process and materials are different, blow molded products are superior in functionality while being cheaper in price than many other options for custom made carrying cases.

Durable, Quality Carrying Cases

Because they are made of a special kind of high density polyurethane, they are completely resistant to rust, will resist many chemicals, have good electrical resistance, are shatter resistant, and are less effected by temperature changes. Additionally, they can be fitted with custom foam inserts to add additional layers of protection to the contents of the case. The blow molding process and materials are so durable, that they are used by the military and other agencies to carry sensitive or valuable products. They are also excellent for storage of valuables that need protection from the elements.

Custom Cases

Looking for a truly custom case? A one hundred percent custom case can be made from a 3D CAD file, or one can be made from your imagination, exactly to your specifications. A custom experience, with any level of pre-planning, is easy and possible. 

Large Quantity in a Quick Turnaround

Looking for large quantities? Blow molding can make quantities as large as, or even exceeding, the millions of pieces easy and affordable. Discussing the expected quantities upfront in the consulting process will allow for the most cost-effective plan to get to your desired quantity.

Custom Plastic Parts

Need parts? It is possible to blow mold specific replacement parts to provide replacements, or to supplement existing equipment. in this case, it is preferable to have a readymade 3D model of the part ready for the consulting phase, but product development assistance is available free of cost.

The Advantages of Blow Molding Versus Injection Molding for Hard Tool Cases

Most product manufacturers have a choice to make when they need custom cases. There are many advantages to using blow molding as compared to injection molding cases.

If you are considering injection-molded cases over blow-molded cases, then there are a few advantages and disadvantages to using either process.

Advantages of Blow Molding Cases

The process that blow mold manufacturers use is not time-consuming or lengthy. The process is affordable and produces long-lasting cases that are lightweight and available to use in many different situations.

We can blow mold products in a variety of volumes, including low and high. The blow molded process gives product designers a good amount of flexibility over the manufacturing of the products.

Blow molded products can produce a high volume of products in a quick turnaround time. Having the ability to produce a high volume gives product producers the ability to create a lot of cases in a short amount of time, when needed. In the economy now, manufacturers can match the demand for products as they happen

Advantages of Injection Molded Cases

Injection molding involves more effort on creating the mold. The molds are specially designed. For this reason, the mold specifically addresses the specifications for the product. Manufacturers often run injection-molded products in high volumes. The product producer will likely have many cases to put in stock as a result of the need for high volume. The injection molding process is more ideal for a high volume of cases needed.

Types of Products Blow Molding Produces

Blow molded products are not only for cases, but for a variety of products.

  • These include:
  • Ducts for automobiles
  • Traffic safety items
  • Coolers
  • Housings for fans

The Benefit of Plastic Carrying Cases for Tool Product Developers and Designers

The influx of hard plastic carrying cases on the market led to a perfect solution on packaging an overall product kit for tools. Instead of selling one tool, manufacturers created a way to give customers a complete solution for the most basic uses of tools.

Many manufacturers wonder what kind of case to use to ship tools in or to package. Here’re a few good reasons why to use blow molded tool cases as part of the package for tools.

Plastic carrying cases:

  • Fits the tools that came in the case. Whether it is for drill bits or cutting blades, the plastic is molded to fit each tool and part needed to get a job done. Customers can rest assured they have what they need when they go to a job. All they have to do is pack their case with all the tools inside.
  • It helps customers organize the tools and parts. Instead of throwing all of their tools into a soft bag or a tool chest, they can stay organized and know exactly where a tool or part is when they need it.
  • Keeps tools protected from the environment. Customers can store tools in their original cases to keep them protected from humidity and other factors that could rust the tools.
  • Keeps tools away from curiosity. Keeping tools stored in their original cases helps reduce the amount of accidents from curious children or other accidents. Instead of leaving a saw blade out where children could cut themselves, they are less likely to open cases.
  • They last longer. The hard plastic cases last longer than soft bags and are more durable against bumps in the road to protect the tools.

At Western Case, we create custom cases and also have cases in stock. The plastic carrying cases foam insert options can be made to fit whatever tools or parts you would like to package.

U.S. Plastics Machinery Shipments Point to Growth in Blow Molding

Shipments of plastics machinery are up year-over-year at the end of Quarter One 2014 and a large portion of that rise can be attributed to growth in the U.S. blow molding sector. Last month’ the Society of Plastics Industry noted that around $300 million worth of primary equipment was shipped during quarter one, a nearly 11% increase over shipments during the same quarter in 2013.

These shipments include injecting molding machines, extruders, blow molders and thermoforming machines. Capital expenditures are way up for many companies, including those in plastics.

The blow molding plastics sector has seen companies move production back to the U.S over the past couple of years. The need for intricate custom blow molding projects has companies focusing on quality just as much as price and delivery. This is especially true as OEM’s — such as Wal-Mart — respond to customer requests for products that are “MADE IN USA”, which in turn drives up demand for blow molding in the U.S.
