Beverage Packaging

HyPET system

HyPET® is an integrated injection molding system where all components, including machine, mold, hot runner, robot, post-mold cooling and auxiliaries, are specifically designed to work together as a fully integrated and optimized workcell. This integrated approach makes it possible to achieve the highest levels of overall equipment efficiency (OEE). HyPET delivers high quality preforms, fast cycles, reliable performance, low scrap rates and also features several system refinements that enable improved energy efficiency and reduced maintenance.

Husky’s intelligent Mold ID integrates the machine, cold half, hot runner and post-mold cooling for optimized system parameters like tonnage and injection profile. Mold ID sets operating parameters for each tool and allows for porting of that optimized process from machine to machine. This results in correct start-up and operating procedures, eliminating potential human error.


HyPET systems deliver:

  • Reduced variability and increased part quality
  • Lowest energy consumption in its class
  • Polaris™ Control provides an intuitive operator experience, reducing operator training and providing rich process monitoring data
  • Fully integrated workcells to get up and running faster and keep running more efficiently 

 

 

 

HyPET High Performance Package (HPP) takes productivity to a higher level

Should you require even more output from a HyPET system, we offer the High Performance Package (HPP), which provides up to 20% faster cycle times. HPP is the result of advancements to every area of the preform molding system, including hot runner, mold, robot, injection unit, clamp and auxiliary equipment.

HyPET HPP systems deliver:

  • High capacity that is proven and reliable
  • Reduced variability and increased part quality
  • Preform lightweighting by enabling thinner-wall sections
  • Resin savings on every shot consistently for the life of the system
  • Lowest energy consumption per part produced
  • Integrated system that is easy to operate and get up and running faster
  • Compatibility with your existing Husky molds

The productivity improvements offered with HyPET HPP further reduce the cost of PET packaging. Optimization of the melt stream from pellet to part results in higher preform quality and a significantly improved ability to mold thinwall preforms. This helps to reduce the cost of PET as a packaging material and enable the expansion of PET into new market segments.

Barrier module for HyPET HPP5

Already the leading supplier of equipment and services to the global PET preform manufacturing industry, Husky has developed an industry-leading barrier solution, built as a module available with HyPET® HPP5. Enabled by new barrier technology, the high performance multi-layer module makes HyPET® HPP5 the industry’s most capable injection molding system, delivering precise amounts of barrier material to reach the target shelf life. Our barrier technology offers manufacturers new possibilities to explore PET as a packaging material for beverages, providing opportunities for significant cost savings that were previously unreachable for applications requiring a barrier.

Our barrier solution delivers:

  • Highest ever system capability and the ability to produce parts with low barrier content – Husky can produce multi-layer preforms at 2.5% and 1% barrier, saving you up to 50% on barrier material costs
  • Increased capability to precisely dose and distribute barrier material – Husky can produce a range of only 0.5%, compared to the current industry average of 1.5%
  • Advanced melt delivery system with our Stratus hot runner – delivers unrivaled balance with only two melt splits
  • Flexibility – compatibility with mono-layer and multi-layer tooling, ensuring full utilization of existing assets


HyPET Recycled Flake (RF) system

Husky’s HyPET Recycled Flake (RF) system is specifically designed for manufacturing preforms with high percentages of food-grade recycled PET flake, with no compromise in cycle times or throughputs. The end result is a molding platform that can lower the cost and environmental impact of PET as a packaging material without sacrificing system performance or compromising part quality.

HyPET RF systems deliver:

  • Reduced variability and increased part quality
  • Lowest energy consumption per part produced
  • Easy operation though Polaris Control
  • Fully integrated workcells to get up and running faster and keep running more efficiently

Preform tooling

As the world’s largest moldmaker, Husky is able to deliver global tooling programs for new molds or conversions of any size. We continue to invest in our dedicated state-of-the-art facilities to increase capacity, reduce lead times and maximize part quality. In-house test rooms are capable of testing all molds manufactured. Preform molds range from single to 144 cavities.

Productivity
  • Industry-leading productivity based on fast cycle times and high efficiency levels
  • Part ejection sensors monitor preform transfer to the take-off plate, improving cycle times and reducing the risk of mold damage
  • Standard interchangeable mold components, replacement parts available
  • Two-piece cavity option allows the replacement of wear parts without changing the entire cavity
  • Choice of standard or High Performance Package (HPP) designs to best match system output to production requirements
  • Multi-position take-off plates and post-mold cooling devices ensure cool, damage-free preforms exit the conveyor
Reliability
  • High quality materials and proven mold designs ensure long mold life
  • Ultra hot runners feature a spring pack that increases the temperature operating range and eliminates leaking plastic
  • Stainless steel stacks eliminate molding surface corrosion and reduce refurbishing and conversion costs
Part quality
  • Best-in-class manufacturing machines and processes result in lowest cavity-to-cavity weight and dimensional variability
  • Water connections consolidated at the bottom of the mold eliminate potential for water marks on preforms
  • Variety of stack designs and surface finish options allow each application to be optimized to meet your specific needs
  • Special programs available when tighter than industry standard dimensional and/or weight tolerances are required (standard on HyPET® HPP systems)
