Euromap, the technical body for European plastics machinery makers, has completed work on the energy efficiency of extrusion blow molding (EBM) machines.

The new Euromap 46 recommendation for EBM machines is the second to be published as part of a project to assess energy efficiency using tests agreed by the European machinery industry. It follows publication in January 2013 of the revised Euromap 60 on the energy efficiency of injection molding machines.

Euromap said the EBM recommendation follows the basic concept of the injection molding one in distinguishing between machine-related and product-related energy consumption. The first part contains a classification of machinery using a defined test cycle. The second part deals with the measuring methods used to determine the specific energy consumption of products according to customer demands.

Euromap said: "Energy efficiency is increasingly important for European plastics and rubber machinery manufacturers. Euromap recommendations allow firms to communicate their performance data in this field simply and transparently. Customers can also use the information to make comparisons."
