A dual-carriage robot and a bottle production system. (Plastics Machinery/Processing).
Another recently introduced product from Husky is the IndexSB single-stage bottle system, which produces PET containers for dry spices. The system combines PET injection molding with stretch blow molding to produce bottles ranging from 25 ml to 5 L on a single machine. System uptime is maximized by rapid tooling changeover capability, with less than two hours required for a complete changeover.
Two bottle designs, both 8-oz jars with 48 mm threads, are being produced at Husky's Advanced Manufacturing Center prior to the machine's installation in a commercial facility. The IndexSB system for this facility is configured with 12 injection and six blow cavities and is running a 9.4-sec cycle, which translates to an output of 4600 bottles/hr.
