Plastic Boxes Industry Information

Plastic Boxes

Plastic boxes are plastic containers. Like many other varieties of plastic containers, a plastic box’s function cannot be determined by reading its name. Plastic boxes are among the more versatile kinds of storage, shipping, and distribution containers in existence.

Quick links to Plastic Boxes Information

Applications of Plastic Boxes

Plastic boxes can be designed to meet a range of strength and durability standards for a given application. Packaged lunches on sale in grocery stores may be intended for single consumer use. Other containers that are used for long-term or repeated storage of foods can be made to withstand the high heat of a consumer dishwasher. A plastic box could also be used for shipping and distribution of products across long distances.

Plastic boxes designed for applications in the healthcare industry can be sterile and non-porous, contributing to a healthier clinic or hospital environment. There are few differences between plastic boxes and plastic tubs or bins. The word "box" implies a smaller size than the word tub or bin along with a flat-walled, cube, or rectangle-shaped construction. This can be true, though plastic boxes can be designed in many configurations.

Manufacturing Process of Plastic Boxes

Plastic boxes, like many other kinds of plastic containers, are created by a process called blow molding. Blow molding is one of the processes by which raw plastic material is converted into something useful. All blow molding processes are similar except for a few variations in process and machinery design. Each blow molding machine begins with a collection of raw plastic resin (called stock) that is loaded into a hopper. The hopper directs the stock into a conveyance channel where a long screw forces it toward the mold.

As the screw turns, it creates friction and pressure that heats the stock. That pressure, combined with heat provided by elements along the channel, liquefies the plastic. At this point, the plastic can be forced into the mold cavity, which is an open area designed to shape the stock. The liquefied stock fits into the contours of the mold, as it is forced into the cavity. Once it has taken the shape of the mold, compressed air is forced into the mold to make the product hollow. Then, after cooling and hardening, the newly molded product is ejected from the machine.
