At a Paris trade show in November, the French blow molding press maker ADS displayed a machine it say produces 1,600 PET bottles an hour.
The stretch blow molding machine, dubbed G62-S, can run bottles up to 10 liters in capacity. ADS is claiming it is the only equipment supplier so far to present a two-stage machine that can blow bottles that big.
The company is aiming the G62-S at the mineral water and edible oil markets.
At the Emballage 2000 trade show, ADS was blowing 8-liter bottles.
The company is based in Cergy-Pontoise, France.
