At the Plast 2015 show, held in Milan from May 5-9, the Amut Group of Italy demonstrated its new AMP850W-GP thermoformer. Equipped with a 50-cavity mold, the machine produced PP cups weighing 3.2 g with a diameter of 73. 5 mm at speeds up to 110,000 cups/hr. The machine is said to be rated highly in terms of energy efficiency and materials savings. The thermoformer can be supplied with an end-of-the line pick-up stacker for part counting.
