VELOX to present its expanded POLYRAM tie layer portfolio with two new grades for PS and PET multilayer VELOX GmbH announces its extended product portfolio in partnership with POLYRAM Plastic Industries Ltd.  Polyram Plastic Industries Ltd. (“POLYRAM”) is a leading global supplier of high performance thermoplastic compounds. VELOX is distributing POLYRAM’s adhesive resins, Bondyram TL, since beginning of 2003 Well-established in the market are ready to use polypropylene-grades and concentrated anhydride polyethylene-grades designated for multilayer coextruded structures. These Bondyram grades are primarily used for food packaging applications.  Introduced in 2016 the new grades TL4530 and TL4401 of the Bondyram series will allow customers coextrusion of copolyester (PET / PETG) or polystyrene (PS) to adhere to materials such as EVOH, PA and PE resins.  Dror Koen, International Marketing Manager – Europe at POLYRAM, explained that the development of the new grade and all necessary tests are completed. Bondyram TL4401 was developed especially for polystyrene hot fill applications. The principal characteristic is the high Vicat Softening Temperature (VST), which is above 85°C. This new grade offers a very good adhesion for coextruded films, which could have the following structure: PE/TL4401/EVOH/TL4401/PS (see image). Hall 6 / A23

Jomar launches next-generation
injection blow molding (IBM) machine

The Jomar IntelliDrive series features precise servo-driven hydraulics that reduces energy consumption by 40%-50% and boasts a dry cycle time of 1.8 sec. which is significantly faster than standard hydraulic machines. Jomar engineers worked in partnership with Bosch Rexroth, Charlotte, N.C., to develop a proprietary use of servo-driven hydraulic technology to power the plastifier. “We’ve developed a machine that reduces operating costs and increases production, thus delivering more profits for our customers, ” said Ron Gabriele, Sales Manager for Jomar. Along with the lower energy and utility costs, the IntelliDrive series offers a reinforced main platen which reduces the possibility of deflection. The machine also features a closed-loop system for the machine’s clamping system, which delivers exact control over the clamp’s speed and position. This creates faster speeds for opening and closing while simultaneously reducing impact upon tooling, thus prolonging the lifespan of the molds. Hall 14, A32


Stretch-blow moulding, filling and capping integrated system with output
rate up to 33,600 bph (0.5 L)
The integrated system of stretch-blow moulding, filling and capping of the ECOBLOC® ERGON LG-VMAG series combines the functions of a rotary stretch-blow moulder, of an electronic rotary filler and of a rotary capper. The ECOBLOC® integrated system stands out for: -compact modular frame, with a wide choice of customization options -latest technology innovations adopted in the machine design -perfect synchronization between the “dry” environment of the stretch-blow moulding module and the “wet” environment of the filling module -minimum number of transfer star wheels, as the stretch-blow moulding module and the filling/capping module stand ”back to back”, with no need for connecting conveyors -operating and maintenance costs dramatically cut -outstanding price/quality ratio. SMI’s ECOBLOC® ERGON LG-VMAG series models are the ideal solution for manufacturing, filling and capping PET, PEN and PP containers of many different sizes and shapes, from the simplest to the most complex and innovative. Combining stretch-blow moulding, filling and capping in one single machine offers major economic benefits: -no need for a rinser, accumulation conveyors and conveyors between the blower and the filler -virtual elimination of container contamination risks -considerable reduction of line inefficiency causes All models are equipped with an innovative bottle transfer system, minimizing the risks of product contamination and increasing the machine’s overall performance; ECOBLOC® ERGON LG-VMAG integrated systems can be employed in the bottling lines of sparkling water and CSD.  Hall 14, B69
