There are plenty of Bekum blow molding machines from the 1960s and 1970s still in operation, and now Bekum America Corp. has developed a retrofit package to update the vintage machines at customers' plants.
Bekum technicians install Barber-Colman controls, a new air-conditioned control cabinet, all related wiring. There is no need to ship the machine back to Bekum America in Williamston, Mich.
Along with the standard upgrade, Bekum offers several options, including proportional hydraulic controls, a color operator display and various pneumatic and hydraulic sequences.
