Extrusion blow molding manufacturer adds office and production space to grow with clients.

Brookfield, Missouri, Sept. 20, 2014 – Extrusion plastics blow molder, Apex Plastics, announced the opening of its newly remodeled and expanded manufacturing facility at 570 S. Main Street in Brookfield, Missouri. The expansion includes 2,000 sq. ft. of additional office space and 2,500 sq. ft. of added warehouse and production space.

During the extrusion blow molding process a parison is extruded, the bottom and top are pinched off, and then blown into the shape of the cavity. The excess plastic that is pinched off at the top and bottom of the mold cavity is known as flash. Removal of flash is done post-molding and requires removal either manually or mechanically. Any post-molding operations run the risk of damaging parts so minimizing and managing flash is important for quality parts.

Blow molding is the manufacturing process by which hollow plastic parts like bottles and containers are formed. At Apex, we use a process called continuous extrusion blow molding to turn raw plastic into high-quality finished products for our customers.
