W. Amsler to Supply Npe2018’s Bottle Zone Beer Garden with Pet Beer Containers

Heidi Amsler

W. Amsler Equipment, the supplier of all-electric linear PET stretch blow moulders will use its single-cavity PET stretch blow moulder to produce bottles for NPE2018’s bottle zone beer garden.

The company will supply Craft beer in barrier PET bottles to be sold throughout the week at

in the Beer Garden, which is part of NPE’s Bottle Zone, an area consisting of 40 exhibitors who work in PET packaging.

The company worked with numerous suppliers and vendors including Bill Droste, a partner with Orlando Brewing in Orlando who had a pre-existing arrangement to supply beer in glass containers with the Orange County Convention Centre.

The 12oz, 36-gram preform was designed by Amsler with assistance from Athena Automation and Yudo Valuepro.

Amsler had to maintain the bottle height for filling but shortened the shoulder to compensate for the wall thickness in a glass bottle.

The preform was designed to accept a standard metal crown closure and optimised for the required axial and diametrical stretch ratios as well as core and cavity draft for preform moulding.

Amsler selected a monolayer structure with barrier additive for the barrier material which would allow the moulding of PET preforms on any injection moulding machine equipped for PET.

The company says it has also created barrier clear bottles to target the growing cider market.

Heidi Amsler, Marketing Manager for Amsler, said: “It was a stiff challenge but we were up to the task so that the Bottle Zone had another interesting feature to draw attendees.”

W. Amsler will be at NPE2018 7th-11th May at Booth #S21067.

L32 Three Cavity Convertible Upgraded to accept 63mm preforms – Video

Heidi Amsler

The L32 Convertible PET stretch blow molder was designed with custom blow molders in mind. The convertible feature means that the machine can run one,two or three cavities allowing for flexibility in production runs.  It will run in single cavity mode for bottles up to 5 liters, two cavity for bottles up to 3 and three cavity mode for bottles up to 2 liters.

The max neck finish has now been upgraded to accept 63mm preforms in three cavity mode. The preforms are still automatically loaded using the regular unscrambler and loading system. The machine frame size remains unchanged.

The video below shows the L32 machine running a 28oz peanut jar with a 63mm neck.
