Blow moulding, servo valves, parison programming documents and links

We hope you will find these technical files really useful. They are a collection of things we have found on the Internet from Universities, Material and Machinery producers, conference papers and our own in-house publications. Like most Web documents there are copyright restrictions on their use. Our own documents are ©Robin Enderby. You may find that the pictures are missing from a few documents. This may be because the document was a supplement to a separate slide show, or that the document was in an unusual format such as an AutoCad drawing.If you have any interesting files on Blow Moulding Technology please send them to us so we can add them to the knowledge base of this Web site.

Conference Papers

When compiling this list of conference papers we discovered that some were very large files – far too big for downloads, so, if you see a conference paper without the download link please contact us and we will send you the information on CD. Some of the very best conference papers are from the Society of Plastic Engineers (SPE) If you are not already a member of the SPE have a look at their web site: and then navigate to the blow moulding division. Even as a non-member you can find a lot of interesting and useful information.

Web Links

The Internet is a wonderful tool for finding information but don’t be fooled into thinking that if it’s not on the net it hasn’t been done. There has not been much work done on scanning ‘pre-internet’ documents onto the web. Many of the pre-internet patents still haven’t been made available in electronic format.

It’s also important to know how the results are ranked by the Search Engines such as Google etc.. A Google search on “Internal cooling blow moulding” will predominately list ‘Fasti and ‘Beco.’ You will have to dig a lot deeper to find information on other methods of Internal cooling such as liquid gas (Nitrogen & CO2) – and much much deeper to discover the original invention (ISC Process) by Denes Hunkar. We have tried to provide links to every manufacturer of extrusion blow moulding machinery however due to the changing world we live in you will find that some links don’t work.
