R&B Plastics Machinery LLC, a leading manufacturer of blow moulding machinery, single-screw plastic extruders, and extruder process screws, and a machinery rebuilder, has announced the launch of the MAX 1800 series injection blow moulding (IBM) machine line which is designed to provide trouble-free operation and easy maintenance. The launch marks R&B’s entry into the injection blow machine market. The company is already a leading supplier of extrusion blow molding (EBM) machines including wheel and shuttle systems.

R&B is introducing the MAX 1835 injection blow machine with a 135t injection clamp for production of a wide range of pharmaceutical and home and personal care bottles made of HDPE, LDPE, PET, SAN, and PP, among others. A bigger unit, the MAX 1880 with a 180t clamp, is in final design and is expected to be available in July 2016.

“This introduction addresses the needs of the injection blow market which is plagued by aged machinery,” explained Walter Priest, a 30-year veteran of the IBM industry and Business Unit Director for R&B’s IBM technology. “We closely examined problems and limitations of current models and developed some innovative features and benefits that are head and shoulders above the competition.” The new MAX1800 is expected to reduce down time, decrease the cost of production, and is generally more cost-effective than competitive IBM models on the market. These key benefits are realised without sacrificing performance and reliability, according to Priest.
