Husky showcases new barrier solution, demonstrates range of innovative technologies for beverage packaging, medical and hot runners at NPE 2015
January 20, 2015
Husky Injection Molding Systems announced that at NPE 2015 (March 23 – 27, Orlando, Florida) it will be showcasing its latest technologies for the beverage packaging, medical and hot runner markets, demonstrating that it provides customers with the highest levels of quality, productivity and reliability.
Located at Booth #2117 in the West Hall, Husky will have a HyPET® HPP5 system running at its booth – a fully integrated injection molding system for PET preform manufacturing that provides enabling technologies for the highest levels of productivity and quality. In demonstrating its comprehensive range of solutions for beverage packaging, Husky will be highlighting its dedication to supporting customers through the lifecycle of their systems. The system will be running SHOTSCOPE™ NX, Husky’s integrated process and production monitoring system that provides a real-time snapshot of information to help optimize overall factory efficiency.
NPE will also serve as the official tradeshow introduction to Husky’s barrier solution, built on the industry-leading HyPET® HPP5 platform. The PET preform barrier module offers manufacturers new possibilities to explore PET as a packaging material for beverages, sauces, and other food products. With the barrier module, packaging manufacturers can now take full advantage of significant cost saving opportunities that were previously impossible for applications that required a barrier.
Husky will also showcase its latest hot runner and controller innovations, including UNIFY™ pre-assembled manifold systems, ALTANIUM MATRIX2™ hot runner and mold controllers, and its ground-breaking next generation valve gate nozzles. Its ALTANIUM® controllers are built on a software platform that allows for greater integration with other Husky products, providing a foundation to support total mold control with mold servo-controlled actuation, in addition to valve gate and temperature control.
Completing the Husky booth will be a display highlighting the safety and reliability its solutions offer for the medical industry. Schöttli, recently acquired by Husky, has been able to focus on specific applications and develop mold technology that enables customers to bring the highest quality medical products to market. At NPE, Husky will showcase its targeted, tooling-first technology for select medical applications, including syringes, infusion/transfusion products, and diagnostic systems.
Offering a whole new experience for Husky customers, the overall display at NPE will focus on providing visitors a more intimate opportunity to engage with Husky solutions and representatives.
