Plastic Drums and Plastic Drum Machines: A Quick Guide
Blue HDPE plastic drums are very common containers in warehouses and transport facilities across the world. These sturdy and durable containers are not only cost-effective but also incredibly useful when it comes to the safe and secure storage and transport of many different industrial goods. Given their popularity, plastic drum-making machines are also in constant demand by customers who seek effective solutions for their industrial businesses.
What are plastic drums used for?
Plastic drums are widely known for their versatility, such as being able to be easily moved around and stacked in warehouses and safely containing and transporting a wide variety of products. Some of the most common substances stored inside them include the following:
Open-head and Closed-head Drums
Plastic drum-making machines can produce HDPE drums according to clients’ requirements. These come in a variety of sizes, commonly between 50 liters up to 250 liters. Two types of plastic HDPE drums are:
Plastic drums with a high volume usually have a double L-ring design which makes them stronger and even more impact resistant.
What are plastic drum machines?
Plastic drum machines are accumulator-type blow molding machines in which the plastic melt does not flow through the extrusion head continuously. Instead, the plastic is collected in a chamber or “die head” as the extruder runs for a designated amount of time. Then, the melt is released once in the product cycle. Such a process is ideal for large blow molded parts because of the required parison length.
Plastic drum machine manufacturer in Taiwan
With around 30 years of experience in the
field, Chen Way Machinery is a specialized manufacturer of accumulator-type blow
molding machines. We manufacture high-quality machines that can produce both
open-head and closed-head HDPE drums. Customers trust our HDPE drum machines
and continue to solve their packaging and logistic problems through them, an
accomplishment we feel very proud of.
Double L-ring plastic drum machines
As our customers' production demands become
higher, we are also challenged to step up our machines' designs and production
cycle times without compromising our so renowned efficiency and good quality.
Thanks to our team of well-trained engineers and technicians, we have managed
to achieve this goal in many of our most recently manufactured Blow Molding
machines, thus, improving their overall performance.
One example is our latest 210L to 250L range L Ring Drum making machine, for which we have achieved a faster injection speed and mold close-open movement, therefore, reducing the cycle time by 5 to 6 seconds. Furthermore, our clients can also increase their production output and fulfill their enlarged demands by adding our post-cooling unit specially designed for the narrow mouth 200L to 250L double L-ring HDPE drum, due to its high cooling capacity that helps form the plastic drum faster, thus, completing its production and saving the time.
