Plastic World Inc. of Brookshire, Texas, made its NPE debut — at the NPE 2006 new technology pavilion.
The company highlighted its patented technology for reducing electricity consumption and higher productivity in injection molding and injection blow molding machinery.
Plastic World will upgrade existing machines with Smart Control and Max-E-Save, which the company claims will allow the presses to use up to 88 percent less electricity and boost productivity by as much as 56 percent. The upgrade can pay for itself in less than one year, according to the company.
Plastic World can convert machines in a customer's plant, with as little as four days of machine downtime as technicians replace the existing press controller and other hardware.
Also, machines can be sent to Plastic World's plant for complete remanufacturing.
The company also makes custom machinery.
In other news, Plastic World announced that a newly formed processor, Scientific Engineered Molding Inc., has started operating at Plastic World's 35,000-square-foot factory.
The setup allows a molder like SEM “to have the resources of its machinery vendor on-site, while allowing Plastic World to have continuously operating equipment to show its clients,” said PWI Chief Executive Oficer Joe Marazita.
Scientific Engineered Molding is running two Beloit injection presses, fully remanufactured by Plastic World with Smart Control and Max-E-Save.
