This month, S.T. Soffiaggio Tecnica S.r.l. of Italy will demonstrate its tiebarless, 20-ton, ASPI 150 extrusion blow molding machine at NPE2012 in Orlando. The machine utilizes “suction-blow” technology, which helps minimize scrap in molding technical articles with complex shapes, such as CVJ boots and other automotive parts. The machine has a 70-mm diam. extruder and a 2-liter accumulator head. The machine accommodates quick mold changes and is equipped with the company’s radial thickness-control technology, which monitors over 500 points to produce uniform thickness across the part profile.
