Maximizing Value: Assessing the True IBC Blow Molding Cost Spectrum

In the packaging solutions, the evolution from single-layer to advanced 6 layers IBC blow molding technology has been transformative. The price for 1 layer to 6 layer automatic IBC tank blowing mould machine, ranging from USD 280,000 to USD 568,000.

Automatic IBC blowing mould machines redefine industry standards by seamlessly merging high-performance capabilities with remarkable cost efficiency. Engineered to save up to 500 kWh within 24 hours, these machines revolutionize the cost dynamics of IBC blow molding processes. Featuring a versatile screw plasticization system, they eliminate material selectivity concerns while ensuring an impressive 99.9% product yield. Rapid color transitions from blue (or black) to white minimize downtime, coupled with high throughput capacity, optimizing production output and cost-effectiveness. Reliability remains a cornerstone, ensuring stable operations and minimal disruptions. Additionally, a user-friendly mold loading and unloading mechanism streamlines processes, enhancing operational efficiency while maximizing cost savings.

Our IBC blow molding machines are meticulously engineered, integrating cost-efficient components and advanced functionalities:

1. Extrusion System


- Screw and Barrel: Specially designed screws, catering to materials, including the incorporation of 20% calcium carbonate. Constructed with 38CrMoAlA material, nitrided and hardened to ensure durability and minimal brittleness.

- Drive Mechanism: Utilizing frequency-controlled speed with hardened gearboxes for precise and efficient operation.

- Temperature and Cooling Control: Modular temperature control with water cooling at the feeding section and automatic air cooling for other sections.
