Belvac Production Machinery Inc. of Lynchburg, Va., designed its DTNR Series of rotary trimmers to handle nonround neck finishes on extrusion blow molded bottles, and narrow-neck and wide-mouth bottles.
The machine can trim 200 containers per minute, or 12,000 per hour. It is suitable for bottles made of any resin, including high density polyethylene, poly-pro-pylene, PET and multilayer bottles.
Belvac said its patented trimmer technology gives a burr-free, sliver-free and step-free trimming. Belvac will show the DTNR at Pack Expo 2004, Nov. 7-11 in Chicago.
Also at the show, Belvac will demonstrate a single-head unit running its patented flange trimming to make plastic “cans,” and its DTO trimmer for offset neck containers, such as F-style bottles and motor oil containers.
