Balloon forming (balloon blowing, blow molding) machines create balloons from thermoplastic tubing or parisons. The parisons are placed inside a cool mold, then the mold is heated and the high gas pressure is injected to expand the plastic into the inside shape of the mold. The mold is cooled back to room temperature before removing the balloon. The inside shape of each copper alloy mold is custom-made by Blockwise to the customer’s requested geometry.
