Products & Capabilities

Custom Plastic Molding Capabilities

OMICO is a blow molding company where we pride ourselves on our flexibility and on-time delivery rates. In our manufacturing procedures we are environmentally conscious, emissions free and always recycle product waste materials.

As more companies move away from metal and toward a more durable plastic, we are prepared for an increase in the usage of plastics and, therefore, production. Our plastic molding manufacturing plant and experts are capable of building custom blow molded plastic products in the following industries and more!

Our staff and machinery are able to manufacture a range of products varying in size from an inch to six feet. These products are used in various applications: automotive boots (protective covers), refrigerator drain tubes, air ducts, water reservoirs, parts for dishwashers and vacuum cleaners, bin doors and food service panels, carafes, serving trays and insulated plates. Over our 50 years, we’ve received awards by well-known companies such as Whirlpool, General Electric Appliances, General Motors and Hoshizaki.

We have 26 machines available, with varying blow molding capabilities, as well as fulfilling plastic welding and press fitting needs. Click here to see our IATF 16949 Certificate of Registration.

Materials:

There are a variety of plastic materials we can use to blow mold your specific plastic product or part. We work to lower the amount of waste and reuse any excess materials.

  • • Polyethylene
  • • Polypropylene
  • • Thermoplastics Olefins (Santoprene)
  • • ABS
  • • Acetal
  • • ​Glass-filled Polypropylene

Blow Mold Process:

Our engineering group takes your application specifications and:

  • • Designs custom molds for the product.
  • • Applies their blow mold production knowledge and experience to refine the product to best meet your application.
  • • Helps develop new product lines.
  • • Redesigns products that require upgrading or improvements.

 

The raw materials required for a specific application are blended and plasticized. This plastic is extruded as a sleeve of material (parison), which is then enclosed in the mold form. Internal air pressure forces the plastic to conform to the configuration of the mold, creating a hollow form. The parts are then removed from the machine, trimmed to customer specifications, inspected, and in some cases, assembled with other components before packing and shipping. Excess materials are shredded and reprocessed to reduce waste.
