Drums, Crate and Pallets Plastic crates and pallets
The injection molding process is used to manufacture a wide range of industrial crates, pallets, pails, buckets, plastic plates, cups and utensils, tables and chairs, and the like.
High-impact resin (such as HDPE or polypropylene) and high-pressure injection molding technology enable the manufacture of more sophisticated designs. Wall thickness (thinner) and rib structure (thicker) of optimized to produce a platform that is lighter, stronger, with superior durability compared to other molding methods and materials
As in food and beverage bottles production, blow molding is used to manufacture water, chemical and oil drums, jerry cans and other large containers. HDPE is typically the polymer used for drums; but polypropylene and other polymers may also be used
Large drums of up to 55 gallons are used for the food service, chemicals and oil products industries
