Making its U.S. debut at NPE in Orlando is the GN760 in-line forming machine from GN Thermoforming Equipment, Chester, N.S. The firm’s largest plug-assist model, it was first introduced at K 2010 in Germany. The machine has 60 zones of infrared heating, in-mold cutting, servo-driven plug assist, and a robotic handling system. Forming area is 30 x 21 in. and draw depth is up to 4.3 in. It will be shown with new trim tooling that’s said to reduce skeleton web scrap to 16-18%, down from the usual 28-30% in typical form-cut-stack machines. Initial uses are for PET/PE laminate food trays in Europe and South Africa.
