Blow-moulding

The process is similar to the production of glass bottles; thus, moulded parts of quality and dimensional accuracy can be produced. Blow-moulding is an economically and procedurally noteworthy process for the production of luminaire covers.

A: First, a fully formed and cylindrical preform is produced by injection moulding.

B: During subsequent inflation of the heated preform, stretching of the moulding compound begins across all dimensions until the blow-mould construction is filled.

 

C: After a cooling time, the mould can be opened and the luminaire covers can be removed.
