The Beatles sang “It was 20 years ago today” back in the 60s, turning 20th anniversaries into big deals ever since.

Blow molding machine maker W. Amsler Equipment Inc. hit 20 this year, and promptly made the event a big deal of its own by landing one of its largest orders ever. Between September 2013 and March 2014, the Richmond Hill, Ont.-based company delivered ……..

March 21, 2016 – Richmond Hill, ON – Amsler Equipment Inc. has refurbished, retrofitted, and delivered its first PET blow molder to Poliflex S.A. de C.V in San Salvador, El Salvador.

Poliflex S.A. de C.V. is a custom blow molder serving the pharmaceutical, cosmetic, beverage, household goods and food products industries. Founded in 1992, the company operates both injection-stretch molding and two-step blow molders to produce a wide variety of jars and bottles. Poliflex is currently updating their plant to meet ISO 22000 food safety standards.

Poliflex needed a modern single-cavity PET stretch blow molding machine to replace an older machine. Small footprint, machine performance, low tooling costs and easy supplier communication were important in selecting a replacement.

 

Amsler was able to supply a used single-cavity machine that was originally installed at a U.S.-based customer. The L12 had been outgrown and was traded in on a new three-cavity L32C. The L12, which was manufactured in 2007, was retrofitted with a preferential heating oven, which was a Poliflex requirement. The machine was completely refurbished and full warranty was provided by Amsler.

Poliflex was able to start up the machine and begin production in their plant themselves and it is currently running 4 days a week. The company is In the process of acquiring new molds and converting their existing molds to run on the Amsler L12.

This small fully-automatic single-cavity machine can make bottles from 50ml up to 2 liters in capacity with neck sizes from 18mm to 63mm. The L15 version of the machine, is available to make bottle sizes up to 5 liters. The options for these machines include neck orientation, hot-fill, and preferential heating.

Amsler Announces Expanded Leak Testing Capabilities at NPE 2012 (See Video Below)

Heidi Amsler

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.

RICHMOND HILL, Ontario, February 1, 2012 – 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, Florida. 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. He said “Our machines are now even more environmentally friendly because they offer a new level of energy efficiency and at the same time increase output.” 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.
