Husky unveils its latest and greatest at K 2016 – Hall 13, A61
Company returns to globally debut two new integrated closure systems
BOLTON, Ontario - Husky Injection Molding Systems, a leading industrial technology provider to the plastics processing community, kicked off its participation in K 2016 today by demonstrating, for the first time ever, two complete, integrated closure systems. The recently introduced HyCAP™4 system for beverage closure manufacturing has been drastically improved. Husky developed the new HyCAP™4 system with more machine, mold and auxiliary integration features to offer increased productivity, energy efficiency and a simplified operator experience. The HyCAP™4 is running a 1.25 gram 29/25 closure for a mineral water application at a 2.4 second cycle time. For the first time, the company also demonstrated its new system solution for the manufacture of specialty closures, HyperSync™. The HyperSync™ system is manufacturing a 6.1 gram flip-top closure for a shampoo bottle application running an extremely fast 8.5 second cycle time. The integrated eIMC™ in-mold closing technology attracted large crowds to the company’s stand (Booth A61 in Hall 13).
“We are very excited about what the HyperSync™ platform will offer those customers looking for increased integration of machine and mold for unique applications,” said Steve Lawrynuik, President of Husky’s Medical and Specialty Packaging business. “The name is really reflective of what the integration of machine and mold features can do, which is synchronize the machine and mold functions; extremely well and at impressively fast cycle times.” The fully integrated eIMC™ in-mold closing technology provides more precise control during molding, with safe overlapping of mold functions to enable better part quality, while providing a more than 20% cycle time improvement. Both of these systems will be running for the duration of the show and will feature live daily demonstrations for all audiences. Information on demonstration times is available at Husky’s stand (Booth A61 in Hall 13).
As a leader in PET preform manufacturing, Husky is showcasing a diverse range of fully integrated low and high volume injection molding solutions that not only maximize productivity, efficiency and part quality, but also help to improve the design and functionality of packaging for a variety of applications.

At the booth Husky has a complete Multi-Layer Barrier experience center as well as a layer watcher vision inspection system from Intravis.
