R&D Molders, Inc. | The leader in custom injection and blow molding Since 1974

Blow Molding

Widely used for manufacturing plastic bottles, blow molding is an effective and inexpensive method for plastic container manufacture. At R&D Molders, Inc. we are experienced practitioners of blow molding in a highly-automated, lean manufacturing environment. Our unique approach allows for a high quality, high volume product that remains cost-effective as well.

We are able to blow mold small, medium, and multi-part products in continuous, accumulating head, and reciprocating screw configurations. Our equipment can handle many common and specialty polymers in shot sizes up to 7 pounds, and supports designs with up to 4 cavities. Our production lines feature ERP monitoring, guaranteeing perfection in output quality. We also support mold transfer – customers can send in molds from prior work and have them integrated into the production process.

Our production facilities are also able to provide many value-added services and capabilities, such as turnkey product development, inspection and testing, moldmaking and tooling, clean room molding, and many others. We are open to orders of any size and can accommodate recurring delivery contracts. Orders are typically completed within 8 weeks.
