Nissei ASB Co. said it has doubled the productivity of its single-row, one-step stretch blow molding machine with the introduction of the ASB -150DPW.
The machine, introduced Oct. 6 during the annual Blow Molding Conference in Atlanta, can produce up to 10,800 bottles per hour, depending on mold design and cavitation, said General Manager Jamie Pace. Nissei ASB Co. is the U.S. subsidiary of Nissei ASB Machine Co. Ltd.
The machine can handle narrow and wide-mouth containers ranging from 50 milliliters to 1.5 liters for applications such as hotel amenity liquor bottles, energy containers peanut butter and other foods.
ASB said it expects to complete 12 orders in fiscal 2010.
