Abstract: Nowadays, polyethylene terephthalate (PET) bottles have been increasingly used as drink containers. They are usually manufactured by a stretch-blow molding process. The improper parameters set in the stretch blow molding process may lead to many defects in the stretch-blow bottle. Finite Element (FE) simulations of the forming process were performed in this paper. The influences of the technological parameters, such as the balance between stretching and blowing rate, the movement of the stretch rod and the inf…
