Spanish blow molding machinery maker Side SpA developed a special “T handle” machine to make a three-liter PET bottle with a molded-in handle, launched in North America.

One of Canada’s largest grocers challenged its canola oil supplier, Richardson Oilseed Ltd., to produce a value-priced clear bottle with a grip. Richardson, in turn, worked with its partner, IntraPac, a Canadian division of IntraPac Group, to create the handleware bottle.

PET has excellent clarity, but so far, it has offered “easy grip” features for 32 and 64-ounce juice bottles. The edible oil bottle is larger.

Some large bottles have a “snap-in” or “molded-in” handle normally made from polypropylene-making them more expensive.

Side, of Barcelona, developed a machine with the patented ability to compression mold a T handle into PET during the molding process. This automated equipment will produce up to 1,000 bottles per cavity.

Side continues to develop new applications for the T-handle system, such as detergents, juices and bottled water.

Side’s U.S. agent is Stretch Blow Systems LLC of Fort Myers, Fla.
