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.
Many conditions must be met to get the best wall distribution in a PET bottle. Skilled operators are, as always, indispensable.

So-called “ocean plastics” is a global problem, but a wide range of companies across the entire supply chain have put in the time, money and R&D efforts necessary to make capturing and converting the material into a sustainable business. But demand must follow.
