The report, titled "PET Blow Molder
Market: North America Industry Analysis and Opportunity Assessment, 2016-2026," has compiled multiple factors impacting the growth in demand for PET blow molders
in North America.
In the meantime, he reiterated the benefits both automatic molders
and the mold-handling systems have brought to AC Foundry: "We've improved consistency, operational and labor efficiency, we can train a molder
in hours and have dropped our cleaning room costs dramatically.
order high quality tooling from their mold maker.
Al Hunter's first machine, which came off the drawing board in early 1964, was designed to accept existing matchplate patterns of the size being used by hand molders
Large volume consumers among the largest molders
can receive 5% to 20% discounts from list prices for annual orders of over 10,000 pounds.
Yet the impact of newly emerging foreign competition in Asia and Latin America has been so profound that molders
of all types of parts are defining new strategies to meet current or possible future challenges.
The unique processing of TPEs could be exploited to secure existing business and provide an opportunity to expand into markets not now open to thermoset rubber molders
IntelliMold is a real-time, closed-loop process control system that gives molders
the ability to better manage the molding process.
When it comes to foreign competition, blow molders
feel relatively invulnerable in their biggest market--bottles.
who typically run short cycles will also benefit from the improved physical properties achieved by this modification, such as a reduction in weight for parts previously over-designed to compensate for the inadequate cure.
It's easier than ever for injection molders
to get in on the action in direct compounding and molding of long-fiber reinforced thermoplastics (D-LFT).
The MAPP network consists of plastics processors (injection molders
, rotational molders
, blow molders
, vacuum formers, extruders, compression molders
, and more.
NPE also saw the emergence of new control technology that increases productivity and reduces energy use for injection-blow molders
It highlights cutting-edge research from over 90 plastics manufacturers in important segments such as injection molders
, film, sheet, and pipe/profile/tubing extruders, thermoformers and rotational molders
, blow molders
, specialty processors, and novel plastic materials manufacturing.
For custom blow molders
, the machine is said to maximize productivity with a maximum cycle time of 2 sec.
