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.

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.
