news 8 petplanet insider vol. 10 no. 06/09 www.petpla.net fast, faster, vitesse on may, 13, 2009 injection moulding machine manufacturer ferromatik milacron had invited to a packaging theme day on may 13, 2009, at its main facility in malter-dingen, germany. there the new high-performance vitesse machine series was introduced to a select group of 150 invited packaging experts. vitesse represent the evolution of design ideas introduced with the cap-tec in 2006. “the vitesse goes a step further. not only will it serve the packaging industry but also other sectors, such as the con-sumer goods,” said robert burzler, director sales & marketing at ferromatik milacron. “in response to market demands we have also extended the clamping force range with a 5,000 kn version”, he added. the vitesse comes in clamping force sizes of 2,000, 3,000, 4,000 and 5,000 kn, and can be equipped with injection units of interna-tional sizes 1,000, 1,650, 2,650 and 4,400. in total ten combinations are available. the electric screw drive of the vitesse allows for parallel functions, resulting in extremely short cycle times. the stability required for the machine dynamics is provided by a reinforced machine base with linear guides. the result is reliable performance at the highest speeds. the vitesse comes stand-ard with ferromatik milarcron’s greenline energy saving package, also includes fer-romatik milacron’s teleservice for remote-maintenance of machines and process optimization. machine demonstrations at the packaging theme day three machine exhibits were demonstrating the vitesse in action. of special interest for the beverage sector was the vitesse 300 with a 72-cavity mould from ktw and a clamping force of 3,000kn and international size 2,650 injection unit wasshown producing caps with a cycle time of 2.6s. krones’ profi ts up once again in 2008 krones ag enjoyed another successful year in 2008. at 2,381.4 million euros consolidated sales were 10.5% up on the preceding year’s fi gure. order intake climbed by 1.1% to 2,326.5 million. krones’ growth was boosted by the continued high proportion of beverages sold in pet. earnings before taxes rose by 1.6% in 2008 to 156.1 million euros. the ebt margin, meaning earnings before taxes in relation to sales, fell from 7.1% to 6.6%, attributable primarily to human resources and restructuring costs incurred as part of a package implemented in the fourth quarter of 2008. profi ts after tax rose in 2008 by 4.6% from 101.8 million euros to 106.5 million euros, earnings per share from 3.25 to 3.39 euros. the executive and supervisory boards will propose a dividend of 0.60 euros per share for 2008. 2009 fi rst quarter loss the global economic crisis saw krones’ sales fall by 19.0% during the fi rst quarter 2009. the high level of fi xed costs, predominantly personnel expendi-ture, hit earnings hard in the year’s fi rst quarter. krones is fully confi dent that in the long term the markets will resume their growth trajectory and intends to retain its permanent staff even in this hostile macro-economic environment. the cost-cutting initiatives that the company embarked upon in the fourth quarter of 2008 will continue to take effect as the year proceeds. the almost unprec-edented global economic situation precludes any meaningful prognoses for consolidated earnings in 2009. the company has to proceed on the assumption that the worldwide fi nancial and economic crisis will, over the course of 2009, signifi cantly affect sales and earnings. krones expects the markets to recover in 2010. bericap advances in sports closure market bericap offers two basic types of sport closures to the market, the well known push-pull closure, consisting of 3 different parts, and the 2-piece thumb’up sports closure, with the advantage of one-handed opening and re-closing. in 2008 jamnica, a leading croatian mineral water bottler, decided to replace all of its push-pull closures used for fl avoured water with the thumb’up. as well as the marketing advantages, environmental reasons also supported the change to the 30/25 sports closure. originally the 30/25 push-pull with ihs foil, suitable for the aseptic fi lling process, was used. the change of cap now allows the elimination of the ihs liner, giving increased consumer-friendly han-dling, as the closure does not need to be unscrewed to remove the foil before drinking. in 2009, after the major success of thumb’up for fl avoured water, jamnica is also now switching its famous jana water brand. fourth european bioplas-tics conference in berlin the fourth european bioplastics con-ference, organised by the european bio-plastics association, will take place in the ritz-carlton hotel in berlin on november 11th and 12th 2009. this annual conference brings partici-pants up to date with the latest techni-cal and economic developments in a sector which has been growing by more than 25% per annum, as well as offering extensive networking opportunities further details and on-line registration at www.european-bioplastics.org. milacron sell-off agreed milacron inc. has signed a defi nitive agreement to sell substantially all of its assets to a company formed by affi liates of the avenue capital group, certain funds and/or accounts managed by ddj capital management llc and certain other entities for a total estimated at some 175 million. the defi nitive agree-ment is on much the same terms as the agreement in principle for such a sale announced on march 10th, the same day milacron fi led for chapter 11 protec-tion. in return for milacron’s assets, the purchasers will, among other things, repay or assume a substantial portion of milacron’s debts. the acquisition is part of a comprehensive fi nancial restructuring, intended to permit milacron to continue as a going concern with substantially less debt. the defi nitive sale agreement is subject to bankruptcy court approval and potential competing bids from other parties, as well as certain other conditions.

news 9 petplanet insider vol. 10 no. 06/09 www.petpla.net recycled pet in food contact applications as the collection and recycle of pet bottles in europe grew, the pet industry recognised that recycled pet outlets were reaching saturation and we needed to recycle pet back into food contact packaging. as pet is the only polymer manufactured exclusively to food contact regulatory standards, the pet industry identifi ed pet as the right candidate to lead recycle back to food contact. in europe there were little or no harmonised regulations and some countries even banned the use of recycled plas-tics in food contact applications. the pet industry decided to drive for a european-wide regulation and chaired a meeting of eu industry asso-ciations with an interest in recycled plastics in food contact applications. this group proposed a recycle regulation to the eu commission. member states and industry fi nally agreed a regulation for europe in march 2008 - (ec) 282/2008. this regulation lays down a series of rules for recycled plastics to be used to package food which: must be exclusively mechanically recycled; exclude chemical recycling and in-house scrap; exclude recycled plastics behind a functional barrier; stipulate only food contact plastics, used for food contact applications, can be recycled back to food contact applications; state that articles made from recycled plastics and intended for food contact must comply with article 3 of regulation 1935/2004 (no con-tamination); require good manufacturing practice, as laid down in regulation 2023/2006; require an effective, audited, qa system; mandate the european food safety authority (efsa) to approve com- plete processes for the recycle of plastics to food contact applications. the industry believes the regulation is clear and fi t for purpose. efsa has proposed guidelines to approve recycle processes for plastics to food contact applications. however the pet industry perceives positive points and potential issues with these guidelines. the positive points: they are based on good science, they are data-based, they are independent. the perceived issues are: there is a lack of clarity versus what is ‘acceptable’; they do not appear to recognise different process steps in the value chain. they give collective authorisation with no regard to individual steps and whether they have been previously approved; new installations require full approval with no credit for technology/ previous partial approval. the net effect is that, as written, the guidelines de-incentivise new recycle plant investment. the pet industry therefore recommends: efsa recognises that the value chain has 3-5 processes from feed- stock reception to fi nal product and these can be independent and collective; for new technologies efsa should provide time-limited approval for individual plants, based on trial and pilot plant scale processes and provide speedy approval for individual full scale processes when ready; for existing technologies efsa should simplify the approval process and approve individual processes and feedstock streams recognising the part they play in the whole recycle process. the pet industry will meet consumer expectations and maintain the highest level of health, safety and environmental standards. it fully sup-ports innovation, growth and investment in the recycling value chain. the pet industry positively drove the need for, and supports the recycle to food contact regulation but we need efsa to produce a fl exible proc-ess mechanism to allow appropriate approvals. p e t c o r e c o l u m n p c textile grade pet plant starts operation in mogilev (belarus) a test run of the new textile granulate pet plant, designed and constructed on the basis of uhde inventa-fischer’s 2r-technology, was jointly carried out by uhde inventa-fischer and oao mogilevkhimvolokno at the end of 2008. the test run was successful. during the performance test a capacity of 250 tons/day was reached, while the nominal capacity of the plant is 240t/day. in pet production based on the low thermal stress 2r technology, dmt can also be used as a raw material as an alternative to pta. a plant upgrade is planned to be completed in may 2009, with the purpose of further diversifi cation of products. this will allow the production of bottle grade pet co-polymer precursor pellets. the pellets will subse-quently be upgraded to bottle grade high-viscosity pet in an existing ssp plant. 2009 beverage innovation awards the 2009 beverage innovation awards is the only non-alcoholic beverage innovation award taking place this year covering the whole bever-age industry. with over 20 categories don’t miss the opportunity to be part of this year’s awards. the deadline for entries is june 30th. categories include: juices, functional drinks, energy drinks, water , adults’ and childrens’ drinks, and dairy drinks best newcomer brand or business best ingredient best marketing campaign (online voting for tv and cinema marketing) best initiatives in the fi elds of environment, ethics, sustainability and health best packaging solutions from pet to clo- sures. the winners and fi nalists of the awards will be announced at a gala dinner on september 15th in the ballroom of the icm in munich (next door to the drinktec exhibition halls). with over 750 key industry decision makers from 40 coun-tries expected to attend this will be the biggest innovation celebration for the non-alcoholic bev-erages sector and a major networking event at drinktec. representatives from leading multina-tional companies including coca-cola, pepsico, orangina schweppes, danone and nestlé, as well as important trade associations and the international council of beverage associations, will be attending. to enter before 30th june or book your dinner tickets online for the networking event of the decade please go to www.beverageawards. com or contact louise gascoigne, event execu-tive. special discounts available for multiple entries and drinktec exhibitors! email: louise.gascoigne@zipublishing.com phone: 44 (0)1225 327850

regional market reports 10 petplanet insider vol. 10 no. 06/09 www.petpla.net region the subject of this petplanet regional report are the asean states, the so called association of southeast asian nations – lying within and surrounded by the south east pacifi c. in the series of regional reports petplanet has already focussed on china (issue 4 and 5, 2007) and india (issue 3, 2006) and done justice to the size and importance of these asian giants. asean is the heart of asia, lying geographically between india in the west and china in the east - right between the two competing giants. anyone focussing on the asean states will of course also have india and china, with their populations of billions, in their fi eld of vision. the economic infl uences, as well as political and cultural infl uences, are quite signifi cant. the asean states are inter-linked with the whole of asia and will be understood only in an all-asia context. by wolfgang von schroeter part 1 asean the big beverage companies too – i.e. those with a global aspiration such as coca-cola, pepsi, nestlé, danone – see the far east as a whole, and only then think about the asean states. the pet industry machin-ery manufacturers also take a “pan-asia” view. husky, for example has its far-eastern headquarters in shanghai to where the asean branch in singapore reports. sidel makes machines in india, and until now malaysia, with china on the way, machines being supplied from those countries to the asean market. the same applies to khs who are producing in india and china, sipa in china. far east oceania china mongolia south asia asean reg i ona l mar ke t repor t s asean part 1

regional market reports 11 petplanet insider vol. 10 no. 06/09 www.petpla.net background and introduction “asia – including the asean states - is in a better position to respond to the fi nancial crisis thanks to its better fundamentals.” and there is no less disparity in the religions of the vari-ous member states: thailand, myanmar, cambodia and laos are overwhelmingly buddhist, brunei and malaysia are islamic countries, as also is indonesia. the philippines are christian/catholic. in all of the countries there are religious and ethnic minorities that are integrated to a greater or less extent, a situation which frequently leads to unrest and violence. asean the association of southeast asian nations, i.e. brunei, cambodia, indonesia, laos, malaysia, burma, the philippines, singapore, thailand, vietnam. the group was established in bangkok in 1967 and is headquartered in jakarta. the establishment of asean as a “zone of peace, free-dom and neutrality” was a reaction against the communist east, and in particular the people’s republic of china. the aim of this common-interest group was, and still is, the improvement of economic, political and social cooperation in matters of security, culture and the environment. the asean economic com-munity (aec) is considered the most important common institu-tion with the most demanding mission, as aec is challenged to transform the asean states into a single market and manufactur-ing base that is highly competitive and fully integrated into the global community by 2015. the goals of economic integration will include among others, the elimination of tariffs, free movement of profes-sionals, free movement of capital and streamlined customs clear-ance procedures. there are certain diffi culties in the way of this integration since the member states differ in terms their economy, culture and type of government. asean includes wealthy countries such as the city-state of singapore and the emerg-ing state of malaysia, but also poor countries such as laos and myanmar (burma). the contrast within countries between the rural and urban communities is equally disparate. from a political point of view the spectrum covers young democracies such as indonesia and the philippines, the consti-tutional monarchy of thailand, authoritarian states such as malaysia and singapore, the single-party communist state of vietnam, the absolute monarchy in brunei and the military junta in myanmar. y o u r pa r t n e r f o r b l o w m o u l d s . benef i t of 30 years of exper ience in blow mould manufactur ing! sidel • sig • krones • sipa • mag • ads • kosme • nissei a. o. röders gmbh / scheibenstr. 6 / 29614 soltau / germany / www.roeders.de telephone 49 5191-603-53 / fax 49 5191-603-36 / e-mail mold@roeders.de for our subsidiaries in china, usa and latin america please check our website. pet stretch blow moulds

i.e. when marketing experts get enthusiastic and excite their boards of directors with rosy forecasts. but reces-sions happen. and the question to be asked here is “has the 2008/2009 fi nancial crisis reached asean?” the fact is that exports from countries such as thailand and indonesia have fallen. another fact is that beverage demand in the consumer market is real and there are no unsupported forecasts or over-enthusiastic predictions. so the beverage industry, and including the pet indus-try, is in doubt about whether the sensational rise in beverage consumption over recent years will continue, and whether pet machinery demand will continue or will be hit by the recession. on tour through asean we experienced a range of attitudes - beverage producers are cautious, converters are optimistic and aggressive, machine suppliers take a moderate view. viet-nam, with very low per capita consumption, has huge potential anyway – irrespective of any global fi nancial crisis. husky in singapore are predicting a reduction of gnp growth of 2%, aqua danone in jakarta notes a lower demand for beverages, indorama in bangkok sees no reason for inter-rupted growth in resin production. khs in singapore is carefully watching the market. the general view is that beverage facts and fi gures need cautious consideration and refl ection. per capita consumption -

capping / closures 25 petplanet insider vol. 10 no. 06/09 www.petpla.net testing of caps and preforms a new wind is blowing in supposedly well-established fi elds. anyone who thought that the development of in-line test-ing equipment will be evolutionary rather than revolutionary should take a look in the direction of switzerland. here, the 25 man team of imd have quietly taken hold of the subject and come up with numerous new ideas and developments. the pet business can thank the decline in the swiss watch industry for the emergence of a new supplier of in-line testing equipment for caps (and with preform testers on the way). the company imd (industrial measuring devices) of brügg in swit-zerland was formed out of a liquidated watch-making business in 1996 to become a specialist in rapid, non-contact measuring devices. in 1998 matthias hermle, who was and who still is the managing director of imd, was asked whether his company could make classic in-line test equipment for caps. a market survey soon made it clear that the competition was using black and white cameras, and that to be sure of recognising all of the defects a colour camera was really necessary. it is, in particular, very diffi cult for a black and white camera to distinguish between the colours red and green. the company developed appropri-ate software in-house and were soon ready to go. today over 500 cap inspection devices have been supplied and are in operation worldwide. the necessary mechanical com-ponents, such as conveyors, sorters - and the innovative idea of a cooling track - were quickly developed. today, with caps being ejected from the mould at a temperature of up to 110c there is a real danger of physical damage when they are subjected to dynamic loading. cooling the caps in cooling drums can lead to deformation, and if the caps are vigorously tumbled in air there is a real risk of microbiological contamination. with the imd equip-ment the caps fall onto a perforated conveyor belt which bathes them in cold air fed through the holes. the only mechanical loading to which they are submitted is when they fall from the mould, and the risk of microbiological contamination is eliminated. the caps are presented to the colour camera having been cooled down lower than 40c guaranteed. at this point an air nozzle ejects any faulty caps. matthias hermle sees a continued high demand for his equipment as caps delivered to the big-name brands have to be 100% tested. following its success in the fi eld of caps the company has now taken on the challenge of preform inspec-tion. the newly developed imdvista is, rather like the switch from black and white to colour cameras for caps, based on a relatively simple idea. until now all automatic preform inspection systems carry the preform by the neck-ring using grippers, which meant that the cameras could not see 100% of the preform. to give the inspection cam-eras a clear view imd has developed a way of applying negative pressure (or partial vacuum) and so holding the pre-form onto a conveyor belt which carries it in front of the colour cameras. for those who are interested in knowing more about imd equipment the devices will be on show at npe, running on the husky stand and on the demag stand. imd supplies inspection devices for caps... ...and now preform testers are also available: the imdvista inoxline. imd is going to present the new imdvista inoxline which the company claims to be as robust as stainless steel but more fl exible than any alumin-ium profi le system. the imd equipment will be on show at the npe, running for example on the husky stand.

and reducing costs in a challenging market. husky injection moulding systems will be exhibiting and demonstrating machinery and solutions that are designed to lower part costs, improve quality and maximise operational effi ciency, the company says. husky recently completed a lightweighting project with a leading global bottled water producer. husky helped the com-pany achieve 15% weight saving on one of its plastic water bottles. this reduction will save a total of 1.3mio kg of resin annually. on the stand will be hypet 300 from the hypet range of packaging systems, which are optimised for beverage appli-cations. it is a 72-cavity high performance package running a water preform application at less than 6s cycle times. also at the show will be the 72-cavity hycap 300 closure system, which runs cycle times of less than three seconds. husky says that it is ideal for new lightweight, shorter caps, with better melt control balance and temperature, precision and repeatability. conair group, inc single-stage pet drying system gives more control and saves energy conair’s new es-1 drying system is aimed at processors of smaller volumes of materials, like pet, that need to be dried at high temperatures. incorporating a conair carousel plus dryer, which delivers air dried to -40c dewpoint and heated to 177c, it takes advantage of control technology developed for the energysmart drying system. a long probe in the drying hopper extends through the material bed and six integral temperature sensors register the temperature at different levels. data is sent to the energy-smart control, where the temperature profi le is continuously updated and displayed on the operator screen. readings are used to adjust and fi ne tune the volume of air being deliv-ered to the drying hopper, so that just enough heat energy is added to the bed of material to maintain the optimum tem-perature profi le. the controls have the ability to fi ne-tune airfl ow and dewpoint to achieve optimum drying performance, regardless of throughput or changing processing conditions. conair says that this improved level of control achieves aver-age savings of between 35 and 45%, compared to conven-tional dryers. the drying monitor and the es-1 control also act as an early warning system. if a clogged fi lter reduces airfl ow to the drying hopper to the point that it cannot heat the entire volume of material, the changed tem-perature profi le will be detected and an alarm will sound. the es-1 is designed for throughputs between 400 and 5000lbs/h (182-2273kg/h). south hall s42031 aoki technical laboratory, inc container moulding for preform cost aoki technical laboratory, inc., has been discussing production costs for some time and will be showing results of its efforts at npe

products 35 new technology eliminates hot-fi ll panels graham packaging has unveiled a panel-free line of hot-fi ll, wide-mouth pet jars. they are smooth-sided, without noticeable vacuum panels, so not only can labels be easily applied but also the contents can be easily emptied. “using our proprietary vac-uum-absorption technologies, we have been able to integrate vacuum panels into the design of the package in such a way that they’re virtually invisible to the untrained eye,” said paul bailie, vice president of food packaging for graham. different panel-free tech-nologies are employed to achieve different designs, so the jars each have a unique appearance. “we didn’t do just one design”, said bailie, “but several vastly different ones, including designs nobody else has attempted”. most of the jars, which have 63 or 70 mm neck fi nishes, can be fi lled at temperatures between 195 and 205f (90 - 96 c). hts dodge the crisis while many companies are thinking about reducing their manpower and seeing order-intake fall, hts, a company, created two years ago by profession-als from aeronautics, the plastics industry and blowing machine manufacturers, goes from strength to strength. the company produces an innovative range of reheat blow moulding machines 100% designed and produced in france. the machines are aimed at bottle manufacturers and beverage companies. “when a company fi lls 20,000 bottles a day, there is an economic logic to integrate a new els machine directly into the production line”, says general manager hubert keh zarzecki. “for about fi fteen years blowing machine technol-ogy has not changed,» he continued. «we wished to design an entirely auto-matic machine, in line, simple to use, reliable and extremely rapid”. hts have created an electromagnetic system which signifi cantly reduces electricity consumption while doubling the speed of the blow-ing cycle. the machine is also entirely electric, eliminating low pressure pneumatic lines for the opening and the closing of the moulds and internal transfer. blowing pressure is 25 or 30bar rather than the conventional 40bar.
