      Release 2016-10-27

      BOLTON, Ontario - Husky Injection Molding Systems, a leading industrial technology provider to the plastics processing community, today announced that it will return to exhibit at Gulfood Manufacturing (November 7-9, Dubai, United Arab Emirates) for the second year in a row. Husky’s booth (E46, Hall Z1) will showcase its range of packaging and closure solutions for the food and beverage markets that not only maximize productivity, efficiency and part quality, but also help to improve the design and functionality of packaging. In addition, Husky will be highlighting its Multi-Layer Barrier Technology, which offers manufacturers new possibilities to explore PET as a packaging material for products requiring enhanced barrier properties, including for juice, milk, food and carbonated soft drinks.

      “Our strategy has always been to provide our customers with high value, reliable systems and tooling for plastic injection molding that will optimize performance of their manufacturing lines and their business,” said Wassim Labban, Husky’s Vice President, Beverage Packaging Sales, EMEA and SAARC. “We serve diverse end markets and we spend a lot of time working closely with our customers to get a true appreciation for the manufacturing challenges they face in each of them. At Gulfood Manufacturing we will showcase our proven technologies and new solutions to these challenges, which are developed in partnership with our customers and with an understanding of the key trends driving their businesses.”

      As a leading plastics industry supplier and a pioneer in the PET industry, Husky strives to provide integrated solutions that offer the lowest total cost to produce, freedom in packaging design, reduced operational risks, and parts that are optimized for both the molding process and the end consumer. Husky works closely with customers to ensure the optimal design of parts or packages, for molding performance, shelf differentiation and overall consumer experience. With Husky’s fully integrated injection molding systems for PET preform and closure manufacturing, the company is able to deliver the highest levels of productivity and quality, for a variety of food and beverage applications.

      A focus of Husky’s booth at Gulfood Manufacturing will be its revolutionary Multi-Layer Barrier Technology, which is built on the industry-leading HyPET® HPP5 platform and combines the benefits of a robust, high-performing and easy-to-maintain system with the capability to precisely dose the barrier layer. Seeing positive acceptance in the marketplace, Husky’s Multi-Layer Barrier Technology offers tremendous opportunity to unlock the potential for conversions from alternate packaging, such as glass, carton and aluminum, to PET. On the booth, Husky will showcase a wide range of applications that can be manufactured in PET.

      Husky has recently introduced two new fully integrated systems for the manufacture of food and beverage closures. The HyCAP™4 beverage closure manufacturing system, built on Husky’s industry-leading HyCAP platform, is an integrated solution where mold, machine and auxiliaries are built to work together to deliver improved productivity, better energy efficiency and enhanced ease-of-use. The HyperSync™ system is a revolutionary new fully integrated solution for the manufacture of specialty closures, including pouch fitments, sport caps, edible oils, carton closures and spice jars. System-level enhancements on both platforms allow for increased productivity and part optimization with no impact to part quality. A range of applications manufactured from both systems will be on display at the Husky booth.

      In addition to its full suite of equipment and services for the plastics industry, Husky offers an unmatched level of global support in more than 40 countries and a range of aftermarket services to keep equipment running at maximum efficiency.
