Blow molding is the manufacturing process that forms hollow plastic parts. Melted plastic is clamped between two mold halves and air is blown into the part to create the features of the plastic part being formed.

When American Tool builds a new blow mold for a customer, our engineering department works with our customers to get them the best mold. Many features and details can go into a blow mold and we make sure our customers get everything they want. Once the molds are designed the material is brought in to start the cnc machining process and our highly skilled toolmakers build all the mold components, assemble, inspect, and test each mold we build. Our Cnc machines are equipped with probe systems for dimension checks to verify our molds are built with precision. When the blow molds are assembled they go through the inspection phase and performance tested. Weekly progress reports are done throughout the mold build and sent to the customers.
