SIPA, one of the world’s top ranking suppliers of equipment for production of PET preforms and bottles, will show the latest version of its ECS SP injection stretch blow molding (ISBM) system at NPE2018.
The company, headquarted in Vittorio Veneto, Italy and with a major mold refurbishing center in Atlanta, GA, will also be illustrating its full range of equipment for one and two -stage production of PET containers, its expertise in bottle design, mold development and construction, its equipment for bottle filling and packaging, and its turnkey system capabilities.
Visitors to the SIPA booth will be able to find about just introduced improvements to the ECS SP system that make it more versatile than ever. The SIPA ECS SP Hybrid system is ideal for production of specialty products such as containers for cosmetic ,dairy, personal care, pharmaceuticals products, and spirits, mainly encountered in sizes between 1 0 and 50 ml.
But larger size containers as wide mouth Jar can be accommodated to if needed, up to 12.5L. It can produce all sorts of shapes thanks to 40 bar blow air pressure, within its chosen size range. Because production runs for these types of bottles are quite often fairly short, there is an important need to be able to change the injection and blow molds quickly, so that down-time between runs is minimized.
A new quick mold change system on the ECS SP can slash changeover times by around a quarter. New features also add extra safety and user friendliness for operators.
With the words “circular economy ” on everybody’s lips, SIPA will be talking about PET bottle recycling too. It will highlight XTREME Renew, the system it co developed with recycling technology specialist EREMA, which enables direct processing of PET flakes from post consumer recycled bottles into food contact compliant injection compression molded preforms in a fully integrated process.
