Nissei ASB Machine Co., Ltd. (Head office: Komoro City, Nagano Prefecture, Japan - President: Junichi Miyasaka), a world leading manufacture of machines and molds for injection stretch blow molding of PET and other plastics, held an open house show on 10th April 2019 where it exhibited its new technology at the company’s recently completed Chikumagawa factory in neighboring Saku City.

The international open house show was arranged with the invitation of more than 150 visitors representing 100 of ASB’s existing and prospective overseas customer companies from more than 40 countries.

Molding was demonstrated by a total of 9 machine models including a range of ASB Series models equipped with ASB’s latest “Zero Cooling” technology, as well as the recently introduced 1.5 step PF36/36-600 model.

“Zero Cooling” is a revolutionary new molding technology which improves quality and strength of the bottle allowing container weight reduction while also dramatically increasing productivity.

Especially important is container weight reduction as an environment-conscious feature by promoting reduction of plastic consumption.

Customers showed high interest in the new technology, taking the opportunity to handle and collect sample containers to check their quality, strength and weight. 

Also, the majority of the visitors joined a technical seminar of the process which was presented in 4 separate languages.

For the open house show, the Chikumagawa factory was decorated to give the feel of a traditional Japanese festival.  Foreign visitors could enjoy a wide range of Japanese cultural experiences including a Taiko drum performance and lunch served from Japanese style food stalls.

Taking this opportunity, the company was able to promote the sales of machines and molds equipped with the new “Zero Cooling” technology, and additionally was able to directly interface with interested customers and demonstrate ASB’s products and new technologies.
