Husky Highlights PET Preform & Hot-Runner Technologies
HyPET 225 system for injection molding PET preforms and its multi-layer co-injection technology featured.
Husky Injection Molding Systems is devoting its 12,000-ft2 booth to a range of technologies for beverage, food, closure, medical, automotive, home-care, personal-care, and beauty-care markets. A particular focus is its HyPET 225 system for injection molding PET preforms and its multi-layer co-injection technology that made a big splash at NPE2015.
Husky is also showing PET bottles made from its preforms with “never-before-seen colors, shapes and functionality,” the company claims. And Husky experts will be speaking throughout NPE week at the Bottle Zone Technical Forum.
Another focus of the booth is Husky’s tooling technologies, such as its valve-gate hot-runner systems for a wide variety of applications.
Cyclic olefin copolymer (COC ) is an amorphous thermoplastic that is finding increased utility as a blending agent in polyolefin packaging films for medical, consumer, and industrial markets.
A new study shows how the type and amount of LDPE in blends with LLDPE affect the processing and strength/toughness properties of blown film. Data are shown for both LDPE-rich and LLDPE-rich blends.
