Plastimac SpA of Milan, Italy, has developed an electric blow molding machine that, compared with hydraulic machines, uses less energy, runs more quietly with lower maintenance costs, and has higher production speeds with smooth, even motions, according to the company.
The Plastibow PB2E/D can produce bottles as large as 2 liters equipped with double-carriage clamping that slides on horizontal linear guides.
American Jet Stream Inc. of East Brunswick, N.J., presented information about the Plastimac machine during NPE 2006. The press has a 70-millimeter-diameter extruder and a triple head to make high density polyethylene shampoo bottles.
