Wilmington Machinery‘s SB (Small Bottle) system now features dual parisons, making the system 30-40 per cent more cost effective.

This latest SB system features a 50-cavity, six-layer HDPE coextrusion system capable of more than 2,000 lbs. per hour, and 18,000 bottles per hour, depending upon the size. The system is supplied with multiple sets of molds, bottle conveying, and trimming, achieved by a combination of proprietary developments in mold design, bottle handling, high speed parison extrusion methods, and processing.

The SB system utilizes Wilmington’s mechanical cam actuated modular clamp design, and is sized to match the container size with either a 1.0 or 1.5 ton model with various mold sizes for different bottles.

SB machines are sized to match production demand with 18 to 60 cavities or more. The wheel speeds are designed to accommodate the estimated cycle time, which can be a little as six seconds for light weight dairy, juice, and yogurt containers.
