A retrofit motor speed control, SyncroSpeed, distributed in the United States by Plastic Metal USA Ltd., helps molders reduce their energy consumption. Plastic Metal USA CEO Robert Knaster has released some details about some customers.
In Mexico, Tupperware Brands Corp. has equipped 29 Engel injection presses with SyncoSpeed and Knaster said the housewares maker has another 29 SyncoSpeed-equipped Engels in India.
Other SyncoSpeed users include Canadian pipe producer Ipex Inc., and U.S. processors Derby Molders, Ames True Temper, International Automotive Components and Xten Industries LLC.
Plastic Metal USA has signed up three new SyncoSpeed agents in Mexico, building on the successful retrofit at Tupperware. Plastic Metal is based in Bayside, N.Y.
According to Knaster, the savings for 8,7000 run hours, or about a year of operation, can save $45,000 per year, per machine.
SyncoSpeed will be on display at the K2013 show in the fall, at the U.K. Pavilion.
