Abstract: Extrusion Blow Molding process plays an important role in manufacturing of hollow products with wide variety of materials like polyethylene (PE), polypropylene (PP), polyvinylchloride (PVC). Extrusion blow molded products are rejected due to the occurrence of defects such as die lines, blowouts, shrinkage, over weight of part. The complex relationships that exist between the process variables, and causes of defects are investigated for 1 litre container made of high-density polyethylene (HDPE) using data mining techniques in order to reduce scrap. In this paper Data Mining approach is implemented by applying Decision Tree, k-Nearest Neighbors, Rule Induction and Vote techniques in RapidMiner for quality assurance and prediction of the quality of the extrusion blow molded product.
Keywords: Rule Induction, k-Nearest Neighbors, Decision Tree, Vote, Extrusion Blow Molding.
