The firm is highlighting the machine's ease of operation and rapid clean-out. It is available in standard models from 3-100 pounds, one to seven layers, single or dual heads, and accumulator-head or reciprocating-screw designs.

The Wilmington Model 5W12 Coex rotary blow molding machine can make three-layer blow molded bottles as large as 1 gallon.A key feature of the machine is bottle uniformity at a low cost, the company said. Available features include nine to 30 stations, dual-cavity molding, one to seven layers and view stripes.
