Davis-Standard, LLC, Pawcatuck, Conn., recently shipped its first 75-lb accumulator-head blow molding machine from its new blow molding machinery plant in Fulton, N.Y. This is the largest blow molding machine yet built in this facility, which opened last October. The press has a clear platen area of 60 x 96 in. and 250-ton clamp to enable production of large flat panels, drums, and outdoor recreational equipment. “We have built machines larger than this one before, but this is the first of its size to come out of Fulton,” says Mark Panaro, D-S product manager for blow molding. The machine has a rollout clamp to facilitate mold installation and a remote-access feature on the controller that enables viewing of operations via an internet connection.
