Husky Injection Molding Systems, a leading industrial technology provider to the plastics processing community, has made significant investments to its PET Tooling business to increase customer value and better respond to market needs. With the creation of a dedicated tooling team, focused investment on technology and increased global delivery capabilities, Husky is demonstrating its commitment to providing solutions that maximise efficiency throughout the entire lifespan of its customers’ equipment.

“As an OEM supplier, Husky has always taken responsibility for supporting our customers throughout the entire lifecycle of their equipment. The strategic changes we have implemented to our PET Tooling organisation are helping to strengthen our global infrastructure and product offerings,” said Thomas Bontempi, Husky’s General Manager, PET Tooling. “We are dedicated to maximising the value of our customers’ tooling and are developing increasingly flexible solutions around our equipment that enhance value for all production volumes and packaging applications.”

Husky declares that its goal has always been to push the boundaries of injection moulding capability by offering best-in-class technology. To achieve this the company is bringing its patented HyPET HPP5 technology to legacy systems and tooling generations.

One recent example is Husky’s patented Self-cleaning Technology, which eliminates hundreds of hours of mould maintenance a year. Originally developed for HyPET HPP5, Self-cleaning Technology is now available for all HyPET platforms. Husky’s Integrated Mold Alignment is another example of how the latest HyPET HPP5 technologies are being applied to legacy platforms. Integrated Mold Alignment uses strategically placed sensors to provide closed loop feedback from the moulding cell to the system operator. The feedback results in prolonged mould life, reduced regular maintenance intervals and lowered maintenance costs. Husky hot runners are also benefitting from similar advances. An example is the new Ultra G-PET hot runner designed to replace legacy solid skirt technology. By implementing HyPET HPP5’s superior hot runner design, customers benefit from increased longevity with an attractive payback.

Husky has also developed a new 96 and 128 cavity upgrade solution for HyPET systems, enabling customers to achieve a more than 30% increase in production capacity.

To provide more responsive and agile support, Husky recently established a dedicated cross-functional global team of experts solely focused on serving customers’ PET Tooling needs. This will help support the industry’s growing trend towards increasingly regional applications with shorter lifecycles and lower volumes, requiring tooling solutions that are more cost effective, faster to market and have quicker changeover times. Husky’s dedicated teams, with collective experience working with more than 100,000 preform, bottle and closure applications, as well as fully engineered packages, will work closely with customers to gain a deeper understanding of their PET Tooling needs and provide solutions to evolve their technology to be more competitive. This is complemented by prototyping laboratories located in Canada, Luxembourg and Shanghai, assisting customers in the development of new preform and closure designs. Husky ensures designs are customised to the specific needs of each customer’s unique application in terms of preform quality, product performance, part weight, tooling flexibility and cycle time.
