PET / Preforms

Faster cycle times with lower maintenance costs are the goal of the PET/Preform industry as it looks to maximize profits from existing molds while reducing time and risk when bringing new bottles to the market. PET applications include single stage PET bottles such as energy drinks and medication bottles as well as 2-stage PET preforms used to produce juice, carbonated soft drink and milk containers.

Requirements
  • Fast cycle times
  • High productivity
  • Lower production costs
  • Compact mold designs
  • High reliability
  • Lower material costs
  • Minimize downtime
  • Extending product shelf life, freshness and flavour of products
  • Design differentiation options
  • Sustainability (PCR)

 

"We continue to work with MM on a number of applications for our co-injection preforms and they are always more than willing to engage and provide support on this. As the demand for co-injection preforms increases, we are confident that MM can provide scalable higher cavitation systems for our existing machines."

- Rus­sell Gray, Chief Operations Officer at NGOC Nghia Industry, Vietnam
