    • Husky unveils new HyPET High Performance Package with improved productivity and energy efficiency

      Release 2010-10-27

      Düsseldorf, Germany - Husky Injection Molding Systems today announced the launch of its next generation HyPET™ High Performance Package (HPP) for high output preform injection molding. With these latest enhancements, HyPET HPP delivers industry-leading cycle times and increased energy efficiency, while maintaining the highest levels of reliability, repeatability and preform quality.

      Husky is running a 96-cavity HyPET 400 system with enhanced HPP on its booth at the K2010 tradeshow (Düsseldorf, Germany, October 27 – November 3). The system is producing an EcoBase™ preform, weighing 9.9 grams for a 500 ml still water bottle application, at approximately five second cycles. By modifying the base, EcoBase preforms are up to 2.5% lighter than other lightweight preforms, allowing molders to reduce resin consumption. As a single source supplier, Husky is able to make system level improvements that optimize management of the melt stream from pellet to part, resulting in higher preform quality and a significantly improved ability to mold thinwall preforms. For example, for a 500 ml still water application it is possible to manufacture a preform with a side wall as thin as 1.5 mm and thread wall of 0.8 mm.

      “The industry’s most productive preform system is now even better,” said Nadeem Amin, Husky’s Director for PET Business Development. “HyPET HPP’s latest improvements offer levels of performance unmatched in the industry. It is the result of refinements to the entire preform system that can reduce cycle times by at least 5% in comparison to previous industry-leading HyPET HPP cycles, as well as improve energy efficiency by up to 15% in comparison to standard HyPET systems.”

      An evolution of the existing platform, the new HyPET HPP offers several advantages, including greater process stability and superior part-to-part consistency. Enhanced system level integration has several benefits, including simplifying the start-up procedure, maintaining optimal operating tonnage, as well as alerting when maintenance is required. This is one of several enhancements that help improve system durability and longevity.

      Unlike other suppliers, Husky takes responsibility for the complete workcell, including Husky PET auxiliaries, overseeing configuration, supply and start up, as well as providing complete support, service and parts. All functions within the workcell are managed through Husky’s Polaris™ Control, which centralizes operation and process data for the entire injection molding system.
