Meccanoplastica Iberica PET Division S.L. of Barcelona, the stretch blow molding machinery division of Italy-based Meccanoplastica Group, has launched the MiPET 2PN, a PET preform blow molding that can mold containers up to 2.5 liters.
The machine can reach production rates of up to 4,000 bottles an hour, on a two-cavity mold. Soon the company will have another version of the MiPET that can run a four-cavity mold for up to a half-liter bottle — hitting 8,000 bottles an hour.
The first machine is operational at the company headquarters in Barcelona, and it will be shipped to a customer in Angola, officials said.
Meccanoplastica Iberica said the MiPET 2PN has a 30 percent speed improvement with only a 10 percent increase in energy consumption.
