New 'inject2blow' Technology Reportedly Reduce Time and Cost

Oct 15 2012

Engel Austria, in partnership with Italian group Cantoni, says it has set a new standard for process integration. The inject2blow method, which the two companies developed together, combines the injection molding and blow molding processes in one mold on one injection molding machine and reportedly significantly reduce time and costs in the manufacture of cosmetic, drug, and food containers by doing so. The process reportedly has a cycle time of less than 14 seconds for the manufacture of wide-necked jars on a 90-tonne clamping force Engel victory injection molding machine in a 2+2-cavity mold produced by Cantoni. Preforms normally have to be made using injection molding first and then subjected to a second process on a blow molding machine before they become a final product, but the new method allows small ready-to-use containers to be manufactured in one process. This combination method is the first of its kind available on the market. Other benefits of integrating the processes include lower system investment costs, a smaller system footprint, higher system availability, simpler quality control, and no maximum clamping force. The inject2blow method can be used to process a wide range of thermoplastics from polyethylene, polypropylene and polycarbonates to PET.
