I was recently asked this interesting question via email…
I hear all this discussion about process outputs for injection molding. Is this also important for blow molding?
Yes, process outputs are important parameters to document. These could include parameters such as melt temperature, coolant temperature, part weight, screw RPM, and flash weight can all be useful.
In the extrusion-blow process, the outputs from both the injection and blow stages can be very helpful in both setup and troubleshooting.
