Amsler to Demonstrate Servo Stretch Rods and Flying Head Leak Tester at NPE 2012

RICHMOND HILL, Ontario - Amsler Equipment Inc., an innovative manufacturer of all-electric, reheat stretch-blow (RHB) molding machines will demonstrate the latest in RHB machinery and auxiliary equipment for PET bottles at NPE 2012: The International Plastics Showcase, April 1-5, 2012 at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Fla. At NPE (Booth #583), Amsler will highlight the use of highly-efficient servo stretch-rods for its RHB machinery. In addition, the company will introduce a new single flying head leak tester which expands its line of quality inspection equipment.

At the booth, Amsler will run its L32 convertible machine with servo stretch rods. The three-cavity all-electric unit meets the high-output needs of custom blow molders of PET containers with small to medium size requirements, as the machine can be run with one, two, or three molds. At the show, the machine will run an oval bottle without the complexity of a preferential heating oven system which normally requires the use of an expensive dedicated oven and special fingers.

For custom blow molders, the servo-driven electric stretch rods deliver major productivity advantages over pneumatic stretch rods, according to President Werner Amsler. "Our machines are now even more environmentally friendly because they offer a new level of energy efficiency and at the same time increase output," said Amsler. They also offer more precise and better speed control and ramp up for better productivity compared to pneumatics. The excellent repeatability also results in more consistent bottle quality. Amsler offers these highly-efficient servo stretch rods for its complete line of all-electric RHB machinery.

At NPE, Amsler will also introduce a high-speed single flying head leak tester. The unit, the fourth in a series, expands the company's broad offering in quality inspection equipment. The leak tester boasts a smaller footprint than competitive models, features a solid steel frame construction, and runs 50% faster than a stationary head leak testing unit.
