Lynchburg, Virginia - Belvac Production Machinery, a Dover Company (NYSE-DOV) and a leader in can and rigid plastic container converting machinery manufacturing, announces the recent delivery of a new and innovative designed machine to finalize plastic containers often difficult to trim due to shapes and container stability. this includes F style containers, large volume handleware, automotive lubricants, household detergent containers, and more.
Belvac has developed innovative designs and processes enabling customers to steadily increase line speeds, improve quality and productivity, while significantly reducing material costs. Belvac continues its commitment to the plastic container industry with this newest model introduction.
Rated at up to 200 containers per minute or 12,000 per hour, the Unique DTO Series Rotary Trimming System allows for the cost efficient production of offset neck containers, by utilizing a rotating head, in conjunction with positive control of the container, held in place by a starwheel pocket, and base platform. The rotating head uses a cam actuated mechanically driven knife with three blades to ensure a repeatable perfect chipless trim, while minimizing blade wear. The DTO can be combined with our F Module, chipless burnishing or "finishing" system, for removal of parting line mismatches, and neck finish profiling for plug or spout insertion, ensuring seal integrity, and elimination of leakers.
This new and innovative design affords blow molders the opportunity to also use straight wall dome configurations and other lightweighting techniques, reducing gram weight and costly regrind, for both polyolefins and center neck PET wide mouth bottles.
Belvac Production Machinery, Inc. designs, manufactures, and sells high performance machinery systems for the bottle and can making markets with over 40 years of recognized precision leadership worldwide.
