New Advancements Include High-Output Single-Head and Flying Head with Timing Screw
ORLANDO, Fla., April 1, 2012 – W. Amsler Equipment Inc., a leading manufacturer of all-electric, reheat stretch-blow molding machines and ancillary equipment based in Richmond Hill, Ont., Canada, has announced several new features and capabilities for its broad line of leak testers. Among the new products are a flying head leak tester with timing screw for difficult-to-process bottles and a high-output single-head unit. Amsler made the introductions at NPE 2012: The International Plastics Showcase, April 1-5, 2012 at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Fla. (Booth #583).
Amsler’s innovative flying head design, which provides high output, flexibility, and tool-free changeovers., now comes with a timing screw for easier bottle handling and more precise positioning on the conveyor. The unit uses a timing screw and pneumatic gating to orient and process more difficult bottles, particularly those that shingle. The five-head unit, which runs up to 250 bottles/min is for plastic containers up to 2 liters for beverage, personal-care, consumer goods, and other markets.
The flying head design is one of the fastest, most cost-effective, user-friendly, and compact solutions in the industry, ensuring maximum productivity and improved quality for processors and product manufacturers, according to President Werner Amsler.
Amsler also introduced a simple, single-head flying head leak tester with no gates or change parts. It is easy to operate and delivers 50% greater output than traditional single-head leak testers, according to the company. The single-head leak tester can be built onto an existing conveyor line without requiring modification to the existing line.
Amsler’s new leak testing features and capabilities are fully tested and commercially available.
