For example, body builders need to intake a lot of water. If they have a water bottle, then they don’t need to worry about water storage. Here are glass and plastic water bottle on the market, most of them are plastic and made by plastic extrusion machine. But not everybody know how are water bottles made. Here is the thing to show you.
Water Bottle Production Process
To support related demands over 50 billion plastic water bottles are produced last year. That means worldwide need plastic water bottles for particular using. But don’t you wander how this light and transparent thing be supplied? Which materials they use? How they be packed before the customer delivery? Then you can have a look here.
Water Bottle Raw Materials
Generally, water bottles are made from variable raw materials, like polyethylene (PET) or polyethylene terephthalate (PETP). The reasons why the factory select these raw materials are two. Hydration must be better preserved, which means the material should be high density. Also it is ideal material to ensure reusable and recyclable bottling features. Moisture can be hindered efficiently. Meanwhile, this material is transparent, strong and light.
Interesting is this, when the water bottles are manufactured, plastic materials has been processed. So it requires PET or PETP is adequate for application. Multiple tests should be previously checked, from pressure resistance, thickness, transparency and other significant indexes should be seriously paid attention. So the samples is in very important position throughout the production.
Water Bottle Production Process
Each bottle is actually a mold, in the process of making molds, CNC machine tools are indispensable, for example: using a deep hole drilling machine to open holes for heat dissipation. Visit this website for more information on drilling holes in the mold.
Different from water bottle samples, The molds are applied to the relevant industries in practice. By this process blow molding machine plays a dominant role. Extending blow molding can conclude the whole process.
Raw material is heated in a mold, this mold should be the targeted shape that be displayed on the shelf. Then mandrel goes inside parison providing high pressure air. With high pressure and temperature, it can be blasted and stretched to the original determined shape. Then cooling system board the stage. This operation needs to be done quickly. Water and carbon dioxide would (in)directly to cool the mold and plastic bottle down.
Pack of water bottle

Environmental friendly is always the main theme worldwide. If your pack material has the ability to be well recycled. That would add a lot of points to the customer’s heart. This is quite complicated as bottle production process.
Application of water bottle
