Milacron’s Innovative PET Preform System with Co-injection Barrier Technology
Milacron will mark its European show debut at K 2016 with of its co-injection PET Technology. The M-PET 300, is a servo-hydraulic co-injection PET system, which combines key components across Milacron’s product portfolio – machines, clamps, injection unit, post mold cooling, co-injection hot runner, mold and robots – into a single solution. The M-PET system will be utilizing a state of the art co-injection hot runner system and co-injection nozzles featuring Kortec technologies. Co-injection allows the simultaneous injection of two materials in the same mold cavity to produce a barrier solution. Steve Morris, President of Milacron Systems stated, “Our established, German designed, Ferromatik-Series machine platform provides our customers with a reliable injection molding platform that introduces speed and efficiency to our industry leading co-injection hot runner technology. Our customers continue to provide us with positive feedback and note that Milacron’s PET systems are the quietest, easily maintained, and very impressive regarding low energy consumption based on the electrification of the system. Another key feature is the low cost to run a Milacron PET system. Aside from low energy, our systems utilize standard technology reducing the number of special higher cost parts (no servo valves are used) which also ensures parts availability.” The system is designed to co-inject a bottle grade PET skin with an oxygen barrier core. The combination of these materials provide the mechanical properties and clarity needed for a PET container with an oxygen barrier to extend shelf life. Due to the simultaneous injection of both materials, there is no fill time penalty and the system is capable of running at monolayer cycle times.
