, also known as a PET preform mold or a PET mold, is a mold used to produce preforms for PET (polyethylene terephthalate) bottles. PET is a thermoplastic polymer that is widely used in the production of single-use bottles for drinks, food, and other products.
Preforms are partially shaped PET bottles that are heated and stretched into their final shape using a blow molding machine. The preform mold is used to produce the preforms, which are typically injection molded using a special type of injection molding machine known as a preform injection molding machine.
PET preform molds typically consist of a series of cavities that are shaped like the final bottle. They are typically made of high-quality steel and are designed to withstand the high injection pressures and temperatures used in the preform injection molding process. The mold cavities are typically cooled to ensure that the preforms solidify quickly and maintain their shape.
PET preform molds can produce a wide range of preform sizes and shapes, and are used in the production of PET bottles for a variety of industries, including food and beverage, personal care, and pharmaceuticals.
