New Member Announcement: Blow Molded Specialties Pawtucket, RI

The New England Lean Consortium is pleased to announce the joining of a new member, Blow Molded Specialties of Pawtucket, RI. BMS is a custom blow molder of many materials and many sizes and many shapes. From their website http://bmsplastics.com/molding-capabilities/

“Blow molding makes hollow parts, such as containers or bellows. We create a part by extruding a tube of plastic, called a parison, and then closing a mold on it. We pinch the tube at the bottom, welding it together, and then insert a blow pin in the top, which seals the top of the mold. We then inject air through the blow pin, which inflates the parison to conform to the shape of the mold. The mold opens, and the new part drops out.

Sounds simple, doesn’t it? Actually, to get to the point where the part drops out, our team works through an immense number of design, material, and production variables to create a process that reliably produces parts that do exactly what our clients want and nothing that they don’t.

Designing for Manufacturability Successful blow molding projects start with our engineers’ involvement early in the development process. Our engineers work with your team to ensure that your part meets functional requirements and is manufacturable with a stable process to ensure consistent results.

Experience with Engineered and Commodity Plastics Our team of engineers has more than 50 years of combined design experience working with products of all kinds. We work with a wide range of materials including Engineered Plastics and Commodity Plastics.

With these materials, we can achieve an array of functional properties, such as chemical resistance, biocompatibility, flexibility, stiffness, compressibility, memory, and travel.”

Please join me in welcoming Blow Molded Specialties into the New England Lean Consortium.
