Global leader in extrusion blow moulding equipment Graham Engineering Corp of York, PA, USA announces the expansion of their range of accumulator die head blow moulding machinery.
The new additions in GEC’s range of plastics extrusion blow moulding accumulator die head machinery include both smaller and larger formats, which will allow them to service a larger portion of the industrial extrusion blow moulding market.
Graham accumulator head machines are used to process a wide variety of plastic parts and are particularly popular in the automotive and leisure industries for the production of floor panels, seat components, spoilers, coolant tanks, kayaks and playground equipment. These machines are also used for manufacturing closed head drums, jerry cans and bins in industrial packaging applications.
Their new small 50 ton clamp machine is available in single or dual head accumulator configuration with shot sizes of 1.13kg or 2.26kg in side or bottom takeout options. The machine is integrated with the award winning XBM navigator PC controller featuring 100 point parison programming and touchscreen operator interface.
The top-end machine is now available in 34kg or 45kg shot sizing. The larger diameter heads measuring from 254mm to 762mm in diameter utilise the GES spiral diverter technology, which ensures fast colour change capability. The clamping unit features motorised roll out allowing for ease of mould changeover, necessary for the large moulds that can be accommodated in the 2.4M x 1.5M platen sizes.
The new re-engineered range of large blow moulding machines offers competitive pricing combined with GEC’s renowned rugged engineered designs.
