Regular maintenance will extend the life of your PET preform mould. By identifying parts that are not working properly or reducing efficiency, you can plan a routine maintenance schedule for your preform mould. In addition, regular maintenance will extend the life of your preform mould and save you money. Regular cleaning will extend the life of your mould and lower the overall cost of your manufacturing. Cleaning and drying important parts of the mould will ensure that your mould remains in perfect condition.
A high-output PET preform mould is an excellent choice for production of large quantities of identical parts. However, if a company expects to manufacture bottles of different sizes, multiple lower-output moulds may be necessary. Proper planning can help avoid the need for more than one mould for different bottles. The cost of converting moulds can be minimized if the mould is chosen carefully. Read on to learn more.
The costs of a PET preform mould depend on its output. The larger the machine, the higher the price. A large machine can accommodate many cavities and giant moulds. Larger machines have more capacity and can produce more PET preforms per day. So, when evaluating the cost of a PET preform mould, consider the amount you expect to produce on a daily basis. Alternatively, you can go for a small machine.
An excellent PET preform mould has many benefits. It can reduce the time and cost of moulding, improve the quality of the product, and extend the life of wearable components, such as dies and gages. A well-designed mould can also ensure that a minimum amount of water is used, resulting in a more efficient process. Topworks offers a complete set of moulds for PET bottle preforms and can print your custom design on each one.

Before constructing a PET preform mould, it is necessary to dry the raw materials. Normally, PET has a water content of less than 0.1 percent. Water content between 1000 and 3000 ppm causes oxidative degradation, which reduces the viscosity of the preform. Proper drying is necessary to avoid degradation and poor preform quality. A quality PET preform mould should also have a temperature monitoring device to prevent any damage to the material.
The application of PET preform moulds is made possible by its unique design and fabrication. The mould is split into two parts, which are mounted on backing plates. The backing plates are drilled for the passage of steam and cooling water, and they also have guide pins for alignment. These parts make up a PET preform mould. Here, we will discuss the basic features of this mould and how it is applied. After reading the following information, we will know the different uses of this preform mould.
High-output PET preform moulding systems can be used when the required parts are similar and small variations exist. While multiple lower-output systems may be required in certain circumstances, careful planning can avoid the need for several high-output PET preform molding systems. For example, if the required preforms are different, one high-output mould could be used to make all kinds of bottles. Changing preforms should be made according to production needs. Proper planning is the key to a successful conversion.
