Blow moulding is an essential stage of manufacturing glass and polymer containers, i.e. bottles or jars. A preform is brought into a mould and subsequently blown into the mould shape to produce the container. Two different problems regarding blow moulding are considered: the forward problem, which consists of determining the mould shape from the preform shape, and the inverse problem, which consists of determining the optimal preform shape corresponding to the designed container shape. This paper is concerned with the constraints on the mould surface and sensitivity to perturbations in the shape for both problems.
