PET moulds and packaging solutions
GDXL displays its latest products and developments in its booth at Hall 9, stand no. S41. The company fabricates preform mould, blow mould, closure mould and hot runner applied on various renowned injection and SBM machines for PET packaging. It also provides R&D and engineering services including container designs and retrofits on production lines. In recent years, GDXL has launched multilayer co-injection products and complete preform production systems together with its partners. Benefiting from the company’s effort in the times of pandemic, GDXL achieved a domestic turnover growth of 25 per cent year-on-year, offsetting the impact on international sales to attain an overall revenue increment of more than 10 per cent in 2020.
The achievement was also driven by GDXL’s increasing dedication in the research and development of its precise mould products. During 2020, GDXL achieved 40 patent application acceptances and 61 patent authorisations granted by the China National Intellectual Property Administration. The new IPs covered inventions and utility models including container optimisations such as reinforced structures, barriers to gases and light for various applications, and light-weighting. They also included mould designs with strengthened structure, more user-friendly installations and improved moulding performance. Bottle designs with various market-appealing styles and textures were also part of the patent achievements. Multifaceted product optimisations create extra value for customers and partners. Apart from its core PET mould business, GDXL’s development in providing complete engineering solutions is also making progress. In 2020, together with various equipment partners, GDXL launched preform production line projects for several domestic customers. Multilayer containers with resistance to light and gas permeation, and market-appealing elements including colour gradation and imitated texture, were also developed in a number of versions. They had been tested and verified by several domestic and international customers in the course of 2020. GDXL will continue to intensify cooperation with various equipment suppliers and business partners to expand its global business, as well as develop new product portfolio in areas such as non-beverage PET packaging.
