Belvac Production Machinery Inc., known for its can-making machinery, has expanded into PET trimming machinery.
The TSS Series rotary trimming machines trim wide-mouth PET containers from narrow-neck preforms. Using the narrow preforms, instead of wide-mouth preforms, allows blow molders to produce more bottles.
Belvac's trimmer technology works on bottles from 50-110 millimeters in diameter, and heights from 80-240 mm. The machine can trim 18,000 containers per hour.
The Lynchburg, Va., company said the TSS design is based on its high-speed can trimmers.
