What's the price you'll pay for a blow moulding machine?

The demand for plastic products has been growing steadily, driving the need for efficient and cost-effective manufacturing solutions. Blow molding machines are key equipment in the industry, used to produce a variety of plastic containers and bottles, such as jerry cans, 200l HDPE drums, IBC tanks, etc.


Usually, the price of a small blow molding machine is around 20,000 US dollars, and a large blow molding machine, such as an IBC tank blow molding machine, requires more than 200,000 or 300,000 US dollars. If a complete production line including automatic flashing, leak detection machine, chiller, air compressor, etc. is required, it will cost more than 500,000 US dollars or even more.


Therefore, when you want to purchase a blow molding machine, the decision to invest in such a machine may require more thought due to the large financial investment involved. This article will introduce you to the costs associated with blow molding machines, helping you make an accurate decision and choose a suitable blow molding machine for you.

How Much Does a Blow Molding Machine Cost?

The cost of blow molding machines can vary based on factors like capacity, technology, and manufacturer. Here's a rough estimate for each type of machine you mentioned:

What factors affect the cost of blow molding machines?


There are a few things you need to consider when considering the price of these machines. Below are the items that will affect the cost of the equipment you choose.

Size and capacity:

Generally, the cost of blow molding machines for small-capacity bottles is relatively low. You can buy a suitable blow molding machine for about US$20,000. However, the cost of producing large containers such as 1000L IBC tanks will be higher because the materials and machine technology requirements for producing blow-molded products with uniform wall thickness are higher. The price of a blow molding machine will need to be more than US$200,000.


Machine technology and configuration:

The complexity of a machine design and the precision required for its components can significantly affect cost.Advanced technology and automation features increase the cost of blow molding machines. Machines equipped with advanced control systems, robots, and integrated quality control systems may sell for higher prices.


For example, when producing a 1000L IBC tank, due to the large volume of the product and the long length of the blown blank, in order to ensure uniform wall thickness of the blank, it is necessary to add a wall thickness uniformity controller such as MOOG or Gefran. Some also use PWDS to keep the wall thickness of the produced products consistent.


The blow molding machine can be customized with PLC, automatic control system, remote control system, inverter, servo motor, control panel, etc. The more configuration requirements for the plastic blow molding machine, the higher the price.


Brand of Blow molding machine


At present, the well-known brands of blow molding machines on the market include KAUTEX, BEKUM, etc. Branded blow molding machines are more expensive than general blow molding machines. Due to different technologies and costs, the prices of blow molding machines from different manufacturers are also different. Therefore, it is very important to choose a machine with a suitable price and excellent quality within the budget.
