Method and installation for the production of containers
Feuilloley and Desoutter of Sidel Participations, France developed a methof for blow molding a container from a thermoplastic blank, including a step in which the blank is heated using at least one beam of coherent electromagnetic radiation. More specifically, the beam of electromagnetic radiation (such as a laser emitted for example by a laser diode) is preferably directed toward the body of the parison. The radiation is preferably emitted in the near infrared, in other words at a wavelength ranging between about 700 nm and 1600 nm. (RDC 11/16/2012)
