Amsler Designs, Builds and Delivers a Next-Generation Single-Cavity Machine
December 4, 2015
Amsler Equipment Inc. has just completed and shipped its first next-generation single-cavity LM15X PET stretch blow molding machine to R&D/Leverage in Lee’s Summit, Missouri.
The requirement from R&D/Leverage for a machine to test and run molds for various PET machines led to the development of this new series.
The result is a very-small-footprint fully-functioning, production-capable, single-cavity PET stretch blow molding machine. It can be used in labs, for small production runs, pilot production, customer trials, mold run-offs, material testing & preform testing. The options of neck orientation, hot fill and preferential heating can all be included on this machine, which can make up to 11 million 500ml water bottles per year.
Two bottle size ranges are available for the single-cavity machine: the L12X for bottles from 20ml up to 2 liters and the L15X for bottles from 20ml up to 5 liters. Neck sizes for both systems range from 18mm up to 63mm. Each size range has two versions: the semi-automatic with hand loading of preforms and the fully automatic version with an automatic preform loading system.
The neck orientation system feature is unique in that it works with standard preforms. The preferential heating option is designed for oval bottles and can help to open up the processing window. These options can be used separately or together using a simple bolt-on and -off installation system.
