How are Plastic Bottles Made ? A Start to Finish Process

A video clip showing the production of plastic bottles. Polyethylene terephthalate (PET) is used in the production of plastic bottles. This video clip shows the entire production process of plastic bottles. Plastic preforms are made by injection molding, followed by a reheat stretch blow molder which creates the final shape. The machine in this video manufactures 10600 bottle per hour. Final inspection and testing of the plastic bottles to ensure application suitability is also covered.

Tension Testing of Rubber Using a United Testing Systems Instrument and ASTM D412
