Abstract: Abstract Control over final part thickness distributions in extrusion blow molding would be very useful in resin optimization. An on‐line measurement is essential for process monitoring and control of the part dimensions. Excessive resin usage results in material waste and increased cycle times because of increased cooling requirements. An inadequate thickness results in decreased mechanical strength, especially in regions along the part where large blow ratios or complex geometries exist. Neural networks are…
