Belvac Production Machinery Inc. said it has delivered a new machine to finish plastic containers that are hard to trim because of offset-neck shapes and container stability, including F-style containers, large-volume handleware and bottles that hold automotive lubricants and household detergents.
The DTO Series rotary trimming system uses a rotating head, together with positive control of the container, which is held in place by a star-wheel pocket and base platform.
The rotating head uses a cam-actuated knife with three blades, to ensure a chipless trim with minimal blade wear, according to the company.
Belvac is in Lynchburg, Va.
