Uniloy-Milacron of Manchester, Mich., has introduced four models in its VersaPET line of all-electric, two-step PET blow molding machines.
The VersaPET VP-4, VP-5, VP-8 and VP-10 reheat stretch blow molding machines offer four-, five-, eight- and 10-cavity molding of bottles with necks from 28-38 millimeters, in sizes up to three liters.
Uniloy-Milacron said a manufacturing agreement with an Italian company, allows it to offer the machine at competitive prices. The company said Alkam srl of Treviso, Italy, is now building VersaPET machines to Uniloy specifications. Uniloy holds exclusive sales and service rights on the machines in the Americas, the Middle East and the Far East.
The compact machines are designed for quick mold change-over, thanks to an open, accessible design and quick-disconnect mold-cooling water lines.
