  • The Best Storage Container

    Plastic storage containers are fantastic because THEY DON'T BREAK. When you are in the market for a container of some sort, typically you would want one that is transparent. In that case, the only choice it seems to me is plastic or glass. Sure glass is great, but what happens if it falls? Let me school you on some advanced quantum physics: If you're glass container falls and hits a surface from a height, it is toast. And whatever that glass jar was containing is imbedded with shards of glass...

  • Conveyor Totes, Bins & Containers from Monster Bins

    Steel conveyer belts were invented during the turn of the 20th century with the introduction of assembly lines being introduced by Henry Ford in 1913. Over the years, businesses in a variety of industries have implemented conveyer belts into their operations to make moving items faster and easier than the job would be with other equipment and human labor. Today, the same advantages that conveyer belts provided to coal mines and assembly lines during the 1900s has made them an integral part of fulfillment centers, distribution centers, and manufacturing facilities. One...

Industry Information

Plastic Storage Containers

Plastic storage containers are plastic enclosures that are intended to store and protect something. Because the range of things that require storage and protection is vast, an equally wide range of plastic storage containers must be designed to accommodate them. That range begins with pencil boxes and ends with food storage containers on the International Space Station.

Plastics are a near-perfect storage material. Depending on how they are engineered, plastic containers can be relatively light weight, durable, corrosion and weather resistant, non-reactive, non-porous, sterile, reusable, recyclable, inexpensive, stackable, nestable. They can be constructed to fit the contours of the item they store, or they can be designed as multi-purpose storage products for items of any size. They can be used for safe disposal of medical waste or for organizing a coin collection. They can be described as bins, tubs or simply containers. The limits of plastic storage container design are only as strong as the limits of engineers’ creativity. Their uses are similarly unlimited, though within the context of a given industry their applications become more predictable. Industry tends to require durable containers that perform in demanding roles. High-Density Polyethylene is among the more popular materials for fabricating sturdy containers because of its natural resistance to heat and stress.

Plastic storage containers are manufactured by blow molding, injection molding or a combination of the two. Both kinds of molding are identical until the last phase of processing. They both begin with a collection of raw plastic resin (which is called stock) that is placed in a hopper. The hopper directs the stock into a long conveyance channel. A large screw in the channel forces the stock toward the mold as it turns. The friction and pressure created by the turning of the screw, combined with heating elements along the conveyance channel, heats the plastic to near-liquefication. At this point, methods of plastic molding diverge. In blow molding, the plastic would enter a mold cavity where it would take the shape of the outer mold. Compressed air would then be forced into the cavity, forcing the inside of the mold to become hollow. In injection molding, the plastic would simply be injected into the mold, which has been pre-shaped to give the liquid plastic its own shape. In both cases, after the plastic has taken the appropriate shape, it is allowed to cool and harden. The newly molded plastic is then ejected from the machine, cleansed of imperfections (if they are present) and either shipped or sent for additional processing.
