Graham Engineering Corp. has commissioned the first rotary wheel extrusion blow molding system for a converter in mainland China.
The Graham Mega 26 dual-parison system produces 46,800 bottles an hour for an unnamed customer in Guangzhou — a converter for a leading U.S. maker of consumer packaged goods (CPGs).
“For decades, we have served the world's leading converters and CPGs with our flagship Graham rotary extrusion blow molding systems,” Graham CEO David Schroeder said. “While we have sold rotary wheel systems for converters elsewhere in Asia, this projects demonstrates the need for rapid evolution, technological advancement and automation to combat China's increasing costs, growing regulation and desire for high-quality products for its domestic packaging market.”
At NPE2018, Graham will exhibit in booth W2743.
