More details have been revealed on the injection-blow molding system to be introduced at this month’s K 2016 show in Dusseldorf by Dr. Boy GmbH & Co., German parent of Boy Machines Inc., Exton, Pa. (see last month’s blow molding show preview). The system to be shown utilizes a Boy 60 E horizontal injection press with a four-cavity, hot-runner mold with an index plate that rotates 180° to transfer injection molded preforms to the blowing station. The machine, which will have a self-contained clean-room clamp area, will mold eyedropper bottles and drop them onto a conveyor belt for immediate packaging.
