NPE2018 New Technology Focus: Dazzlingly High-Speed Packaging Production

Originally titled 'NPE2018 New Technology Focus: Dazzlingly High-Speed Packaging Production'

Several machine suppliers are injection molding caps and thin-wall cups in as fast as 2-sec cycles.

An area of market focus among the injection molding exhibits is dazzlingly high-speed packaging production—of caps, in particular, using beefed-up all-electric or hybrid machines.

For example, Engel (Booth W3303) will mold 26-mm HDPE beverage caps with tamper-proof bands in a 96-cavity mold in 2 sec on its all-electric, 460-ton e-cap system.

And Jon Wai of Taiwan (Booth S24125) is running its “Cap Solution” on a 220-ton machine, producing 48 caps in 3.06 sec.

Apart from caps, Arburg (W1325) is molding two PP tubs weighing just over 0.05 oz apiece in 2.9 sec, and four PP tubs with IML in 1.9 sec.
