Husky Injection Molding Systems Ltd. has created a dedicated PET tooling team, completed focused investments in technology and increased global delivery capacities to strengthen its PET tooling organization.
“As an OEM supplier, Husky has always taken responsibility for supporting our customers throughout the entire lifecycle of their equipment,” said Thomas Bontempi, Husky's general manager of PET tooling. “The strategic changes we have implemented to our PET tooling organization are helping to strengthen our global infrastructure and product offerings.”
Husky has always maintained mold refurbishing centers, so its global customers can easily convert or refurbish PET molds. Over the last three years, Husky has made strategic investments to improve those capabilities.
To give more responsive and agile support, Husky recently established a dedicated, cross-functional global team of experts solely focused on serving customer needs for PET tooling. The team has collective experience working with more than 100,000 preform, bottle and closure epplications, as well as fully engineered packages.
Husky, based in Bolton, Ontario, also is bringing its patented HyPET HPP5 technology to legacy mold systems and tooling generations. Examples are Husky's Self-cleaning Technology for molds and its Integrated Mold Alignment system.
Husky plans to give a large presence to PET tooling at 2018 trade shows, including Plastindia and NPE.
