almost 70,000 visitors despite the global economic crisis, swine fl u, and the rainy weather in guangzhou throughout the show period, chinaplas 2009, held from may 18th to 21st, was well attended, with 1,840 exhibitors and about 70,000 buyers from all around the world. mr stanley chu of adsale exhi-bition services ltd, organisers of chinaplas, said, “the unfavourable external factors did bring us a lot of challenges and diffi culties in the past few months. however, with staunch support from many infl uential trade associations and our working team’s intensive promotion efforts the show was 30% larger in area than china-plas 2007, also held in guangzhou. the number of visitors also met our expectation. overseas buyers accounted for 16.4% of the total visi-tor numbers (64.6% from asia, 9% from the middle east and 8% from europe. the remainder were from america, africa and oceania). more than 2,000 visitors at engel symposium the amazing success of the engel symposium 09, 27th and 28th may in st. valentin just goes to show that innova-tion is an important topic even in diffi cult times. some 2,000 guests from 45 coun-tries followed the invitation by the austrian injection moulding machine manufacturer and enjoyed fascinating keynotes, highly innovative exhibits and interesting talks. this is a new record for engel – it has never welcomed so many visitors to a symposium before. and this despite the very tense market situation. “in these drastic economic times, our customers are increasingly relying on improving their competitiveness by increasing productivity, innovations and energy savings. and they look for inno-vative and stable partners for the future to help them achieve this. the very positive response with 2,000 attending the engel symposium shows that we fulfi ll these needs by offering our cus-tomers attractive solutions to help them continue mastering future market chal-lenges and motivates to continue this way”, says dr. peter neumann, ceo engel holding. international recycled polyester forum the fi fth china recycled polyester forum is to be held from september 2 to 4 in shanghai. the conference pro-vides insights into the dynamics of the polyester recycling chain in china, an industry which is increasingly infl uential throughout the world. as previously the conference takes place under the aus-pices of the china chemical fiber eco-nomic information (ccfei). pci (pet packaging, resin & recycling) ltd will cover market development issues, polyester recycling forum will review the latest pet recycling technology and ccfei will supply an insight into the development of the chinese recycling industry. topics will include the impact of the global recession on polyester recy-cling, market developments, prospects for rpet fi bre and recycling in china, emerging recycling technologies, devel-opments in chinese law and regulations covering recycling, industry standards for recycled psf in china, user require-ments for food grade rpet , issues relating to co 2 footprint and chemical pet recycling. contact via http://www.ccfei.net or http://www.ce-pip.com

news 9 petplanet insider vol. 10 no. 07/09 www.petpla.net the only end-to-end vision inspection system in the world. 29200 aurora road cleveland, ohio 44139 usa if you need a fully-integrated pet container vision inspection system, able to cover your whole process from start to finish, pressco is the only solution. our reliable, proven systems are ideal for inspection at various process stages including preforms, bottle blowing, filling, closures and labeling. — call or email us at — 1 440 498 2600 sales@pressco.com www.pressco.com p e t c o r e c o l u m n p c the reach pre-registration is over – what now? to ensure that companies meet the fi rst substance registration deadline of november 10, 2010 set by reach it is important that the substance information exchange forums (siefs) are promptly established. the idea behind siefs is that companies planning to register the same substance share information to avoid duplication of studies, and agree on classifi cation and labelling as appropriate. joining a sief is a legal obligation for all those registering. companies who have pre-registered substances will be contacted by their sief formation facilitator (sff) to confi rm their future inter-est. it is very important to confi rm your company’s preference by promptly answering either with a positive or negative response, or possibly agreeing to respond in a timely manner. most requests ask whether you are active, passive or dormant. if you are not sure, make contact to clarify your company’s position. registrations depend on this interaction. you may be asked by the sief if you are a data holder. even if you do not receive such a request you must nevertheless inform the sief quickly if you are in fact a data holder. many readers will be downstream users of manufactured and imported substances. make sure that you write a letter to your suppli-ers (manufacturers or importers) before november 1, 2009 to ask them to include your company’s applications in their submissions. if your company’s application is not included as a use for this substance in the worst case you may have to cease production. your company would need to make the downstream use application itself to remedy this. enforcement is a key part of reach. already authorities in some countries have delayed shipments of substances, or materials containing substances that have not been pre-registered. it is your responsibility to ensure your manufacturer/importer has pre-registered the substance you use. an offi cial letter from them might be used in your defence if they have not pre-registered your substance, but the company’s pre-registration number will not serve as a defence. remember, if you use a substance imported from outside of the eu (this includes polymers) and the importer has not pre-registered the substance then you must immediately cease using that substance and move to a supplier who has pre-registered. do not ignore this problem and expect it to go away - it will not! recyclers are unlikely to be required to register unless they import recyclate from outside of the eu. however pet recyclers are likely to be part of the downstream user scenario and should therefore be prepared to cooperate with the sief. new pet plant expansion for sabic uhde inventa-fischer has entered into a contract with saudi basic industries cor-poration (sabic) to provide the technology licence and complete basic engineering for the second pet resin expansion of sabic’s manufacturing affi liate, arabian industrial fiber company (ibn rushd) at the site in yanbu, saudi arabia. the plant will have an annual capacity of 420,000 tonnes and will produce various grades of pet resin for, among others, still water and csd bottling applications. this latest pet resin expan-sion goes along with several other projects at ibn rushd, including an extension of the pta plant as the raw material source for the pet plant. based on specifi c project, end-product and logistic requirements laid down by sabic, uhde inventa-fischer will provide an integrated and tailor-made plant design using its proprietary melt phase pet technology.

regional market reports 10 petplanet insider vol. 10 no. 07/09 www.petpla.net region singapore – under pressure, but still setting the trend, and a benchmark for asean by wolfgang von schroeter part 2 asean the general report on pet in the asean countries (see petplanet insider 06/2009) is followed in this issue by our visit reports and the discussions we held with suppliers of pet machines, pet converters and bev-erage fi llers. the visits and discussions all took place in mid-january 2009. * we were guided and accompanied on our tour through the pet world by the big suppliers in the pet business: husky and sidel, who are pioneers in pet technology and enjoy a long tradition in the region, as well as by khs, who together with sig beverages (in particular the former krupp corpoplast) have now taken a huge leap forward in the pet business, and by sipa who have found a suitable range of fi lling machines in their merger with berchi. all of these companies opened doors for us and intro-duced us to converters and fi llers, including indorama, aqua danone, coca-cola, pepsi cola and many others. netstal have very few machines in the area, whilst krones is clearly enjoying success by focussing on glass bottle fi lling. there was nothing locally of real interest that they could show to a researcher into the pet business. in the past a tour of the asean countries always began in singapore, which for years was the gateway to the asean region, in the same way that hong kong was the gateway to china. however both cities have lost some of their importance. while husky and khs have set up their asean headquarters in singapore, the big pet convert-ers and fi llers have walked on. they don’t produce in singapore any longer because of the high costs. nearby malaysia has proven to be more attractive. but singapore still offers good, attractive residential facilities, schools and universities, a well-established logistics system, a skilled workforce and personal security, as well as one of the best global communications networks. the city is clean, well-organised and has given its chinese character a new, modern image as well as having lost a great deal of its original asian identity. a large number of europeans have settled there. *an extended version of this article is available on www.petpla.net reg i ona l mar ke t repor t s asean part 2

regional market reports 12 petplanet insider vol. 10 no. 07/09 www.petpla.net indonesia and thailand are key markets in asean, with vietnam having a high potential. a major contributor to growth is water. other promising contributors are edible oil, tea and isotonic drinks. in general husky expects healthy growth for the long term future. hoefert: “of course we could also look at the dark side when describing the whole asian market - because of the well-documented global fi nancial crisis. i don’t get involved with such speculation. the potential in asia is indisputable. there is a huge need for such products, and a real need for the asian market to catch up. we choose to take a positive approach.” jakarta: modern and vintage on equal footing indonesia, with a population of 230 million, is the most heavily populated country in asean. straddling the equator and spread over countless islands, the country has numer-ous ethnic groups, cultures and religions. industrial and social development varies from island to island - from the island of sumatra via central java, through timor, and new guinea in the deep south. in jakarta the new and the old stand side by side - high rise buildings and shanties, mercedes and three-wheelers (tuk-tuks). this wondrous mix is one of the charms of jakarta, and part of the mentality that differs from the standardised pursuit of so-called civilisation and wellbeing based on the western model. yet our guide, who showed us through jakarta was sad to say, “what and why can singa-pore do so much better that we can’t?” of the estimated 230 million people in indonesia 63% live on java, where the capi-tal, jakarta, is situated. this is therefore where most business is done and where companies tend to establish themselves. we understood from discussions that the population is broken down roughly as follows: “a” (the upper class) representing 10 to 15%, of whom 80% are chinese. “b” (the middle class) 15 to 20%. important for the dis- cerning consumption of, among other things, packaged beverages. “c” and “d” (the under-privileged lower classes) more than 60%. government intervention is targeting improvement in the lot of these lower social groups. the impact of the eco-nomic crisis has not really been felt so far. indications are that government policy will tackle problems of infrastruc-ture, energy and corruption, and will eventually result in the growth of the middle classes, which appears most vital for the beverage industry, and for the pet industries associ-ated with it. jakarta, indonesia - january 13, 2009 husky injection molding systems “the growth of the middle classes is most vital for the beverage and pet industries.” arief dewanto – husky regional manager, indonesia we met arief dewanto, husky regional manager, indo-nesia. arief dewanto suggested that we call in to a super-market, and decided to go to the “the food hall“, into a shopping mall, a big store that could be found just about anywhere that people shopped, or went window-shopping, where they could meet and chat, and where one could think back to the change from the lovely old chinese mar-kets that no longer exist here. in the beverages department we could see the numerous different formats - creatively designed bottles and labels - and where pet, thanks to its versatility, has given the designer’s imagination almost total freedom. the malls and supermarkets to a degree offer a guar-antee of quality and safety, which was not necessarily the case with traditional asian sales in the streets, especially when there was a re-fi lling station nearby, which was not meant for cars but rather for re-fi lling 5 gallon containers (usually made from pc) with drinking water. arief dewanto said that he believed re-fi lling was again on the increase due to the current economic situation. this type of trend could not only cause signifi cant trouble for the beverage industry but would also refl ect on the local health authorities who are not able to check the water quality, nei-ther are they able to check the cleanliness of the re-used container. the local pet industry there are 5 pet resin manufacturers/suppliers in indo-nesia: indorama, mitsubishi, mitsui , sk chemical (korea) and polypet (local).husky has 36 systems between 16 and 128 cavities in the country with reference customers such as: aqua danone and coca-cola, as well as convert-ers such as uniplast and indotirta abadi . the trend for converters is towards in-house operation for brand owners. husky’s market share, in terms of cavities, is estimated to be more than 80%. competition comes from china in the form of huayan.

bottle making 22 petplanet insider vol. 10 no. 07/09 www.petpla.net sbo compact preferential heating for detergent bottles blow moulder versatility is vital novapak has about 100 pet stock bottles and manufactures over 350 customized shapes. “customers may want the same bottles but with different necks or colours. we make our own preforms in order to respond to specifi c requests in the shortest possible time,” alexander magyar explains. after acquiring its fi rst sidel machine in 1996, novapak now has more than 15 such blowers installed at its three dedicated pet package production plants. “we appreciate the process capacity and quick changeo-ver features of sidel blow moulders, which help us achieve ideal fl ex-ibility for our production. we know that when we design a bottle, the machine can make it.” speeds up to 5,600 bottles per hour the latest blow moulder installed at novapak, the sbo 4 compact preferential heating, can run at speeds up to 1,400 bottles per hour per mould, which is nearly 40% faster than the previous generation. “we are pleased with the quality of the bottles, and machine fl ex-ibility is important for us, because our average run is two days,” says magyar. “we still have to improve preform infeed, since the neck collar poses a slight problem at high speed. but we know that we can count on sidel for technical support and for spare parts.” in march, a new pre-form infeed will ensure that nova-pak meets its product specifi cations. to meet the growing demand for complex packages, novapak is increasing its production capacity with a new sidel blow moulder equipped with preferential heating. for the past dozen years nova-pak, the american bottle manufac-turer, has been specialising in the production of highly technical plastic packaging for personal care, house-hold goods, automotive, and lawn and garden products. novapak’s strengths include a wide range of customised bottles, a large number of stock bot-tles, integrated production of pre-forms, and excellent responsiveness to market demands. to meet grow-ing demand in the us market, the company has acquired its fi rst sbo 4 compact preferential heating blow moulder from sidel. the machine has been installed at its paris, illinois, plant, where since the end of novem-ber 2008 it has been producing two new detergent bottles in the 28 oz. (828 ml) and 22 oz. (651 ml) sizes at a speed of 4,800 bottles per hour. the culture of plastic novapak’s core activity is the manufacture of medium- and large-sized containers, from 150ml to 3l, in quantities ranging from 50,000 to 15 million units and with a total annual production of more than a billion pack-ages. 60% are in pet, 25% in hdpe and 15% in pvc. “we use hdpe for its barrier prop-erties, which are needed when pack-aging more aggressive products like pesticides or lawn and garden prod-ucts that are not compatible with pet,” says alexander magyar, vice president of operations at novapak. “despite all the environmental concerns about the use of pvc, our business still continues. today, it is either about the chemical resistance that pet cannot offer, or for people seeking an inte-grated handle in a clear container.” the production of pet packages at novapak is mostly for personal and household goods, with a small fraction for beverages, such as isotonic and sports drinks. “we do not make bottles for csd or water. to be competitive in beverages in the us, you have to have high output machines. we are not a high volume producer.” health & beauty care packaging

bottle making 23 petplanet insider vol. 10 no. 07/09 www.petpla.net though fully optimized for preferen-tial heating, this new sbo can also be set for standard production with a simple reconfi guration of the machine in less than 30 minutes. quick change moulds and “perso” parts reduce format changeover times to 15min. this gain helps reduce time to market, a key parameter for nova-pak’s customers. responsiveness to the market today, the key factors in nova-pak’s success are simple, namely package innovation, and speed to market. “we can take a new package from design to mould manufacture and industrial-scale production in four-fi ve weeks or less – and with fl awless quality,” magyar remarks. originality and quality of the bottle design are essential, since most brand owners want a unique shape to communicate their brand and to differentiate from the competition. “for 80 to 90% of our business customers give us an idea or a concept and we will design the package for them”. a market in fl ux there is currently a trend toward new packaging materials in the north american cosmetics and household goods markets. many glass contain-ers are being switched over to pet which is also replacing pvc to an extent. some cartons and cans are also being replaced by pet. “pet is proving to be the solution for the future, and we see a number of development opportunities,” magyar claims. “the wal-marts, the home depots, the lowes do not want glass in their stores. the end-users are driving us away from glass; the fi llers do not want glass because breakage can shut down the whole line.” these factors all favour the use of pet. however, in the united states, plastic has been the victim of bad press. commitment to the environment novapak is very involved in envi-ronmental protection. “we seek to ensure good practices, in the offi ce, in the plant and throughout the facil-ity. we encourage our customers to do the same,” says magyar. actions include simple initiatives such as turning off lights and cutting down on printing in order to reduce paper con-sumption. they also involve major investments in low-energy equip-ment. “we have acquired new com-pressors with frequency drives that shut down automatically when they are not in use. instead of dispos-ing of it, we reuse hydraulic oil from the extrusion machines to fuel the furnace and reduce consumption.” novapak also works on decreasing preform weight. “when a customer brings a con-tainer to us, we can offer them two or three gram weights, depending on what feel and performance character-istics they need,” he says. novapak can offer lightweighting possibilities even for highly technical packages, thanks to its large portfolio of pre-forms with different dimensions and weights. preferential heating preferential heating uses a dif-ferentiated temperature profi le. this selective heating process ensures that the preform expands in pre-defi ned directions to achieve the desired wall thickness while adapting to the specifi c shape of the mould. this process leads to: better material distribution, elimination of areas of over-thick- ness and easier labeling, weight optimization of particularly complex containers. limits of lightweighting however , lightweighting does have its limits. “the limits for your product are not driven by mechanical properties but rather by customer acceptance,” states alexander magyar . “the customers for personal care cosmetics are used to glass, they want the same chemical and physical resistance. people coming from polyethylene demand a heavy wall thick-ness.” despite all this, people who are familiar with pet know its performance levels and accept lighter packages: “a trigger sprayer that was initially produced at 55 grams now weighs 36 grams.” lightweighting is not the only important trend for pet packaging. customers are also resizing containers to reduce costs. product size can be reduced in order to maintain an attractive price point that the consumer is willing to pay; a 16 oz container can be reduced to 15 or 14 oz, for example. conversely, there is also a trend to very large formats for consum-ers who do not want to go to the super-market too often. after acquiring its fi rst sidel machine in 1996, novapak now has more than 15 such blowers installed at its three dedicated pet package production plants. health & beauty care packaging

bottle making 24 petplanet insider vol. 10 no. 07/09 www.petpla.net with more than 200 systems installed in 47 countries since their introduction in 2006, sipa’s range of sfl linear blowers represent an important technical success for the company. the fl exibil-ity of the sfl range makes them a leading choice for the varied and customised containers required by the health and beauty markets. high productivity – up to 1,800 bottles/hr/cavity – and low energy consumption helped the sfl ma-chines to commercial success but it is their versatility and fl exibility that really makes them stand out. simple modifi cations enable the same machine to produce a large variety of bottles, ranging from standard to large – up to 30l and including hot fi ll and differential heating for oval bottles; shaped-neck containers; opp and pla bottles; small sizes for pharma-ceutical products; and extremely light bottles with lightweight necks. sfl machines can also produce bottles with handles formed in the body and they can be fully customised for cosmetics, detergents and chemi-cal products. the sfl blowers also benefi t from the other technological innovations of the rotary blowers (sfr) developed by sipa, the patented oven system in particular, and they guarantee the lowest energy consumption in their category. the adoption of a fast, pre-cise and fully electrical operational system delivers maximum energy saving for mechanical movements in specifi c production outputs. with more effi cient ventilation, the oven ensures perfect thermal condi-tioning for preforms at lower tem-peratures. this results in a signifi cant energy saving and considerable fl ex-ibility in the adjustment of the heating-stretching-blowing process. sipa has achieved reduced air consumption for blowing by using ars plus on the sfl blowers. this new and exclusive air recovery system enables recovered exhaust air to be used both for pre-blowing and high-pressure blowing. this option means that the size of the air compressor can be reduced by 35%, leading to lower energy consumption and, therefore, utility costs. linear blowers for beauty markets health & beauty care packaging health and beauty care packaging produced on a sipa sfl.

bottling / filling 26 petplanet insider vol. 10 no. 07/09 www.petpla.net proper training boosts line effi ciency practical training based on practical experience: andreas walter, krones, with some of the 30 people who attended the krones academy workshop. jörg puma standing at the fl ip chart is head of the krones academy and the person who ran the workshop on “saving costs and increasing productivity through training”. gone are the days when machine operators knew at once what was wrong with their machines when they were not running properly. as machines become more complex they also require fewer operators, nevertheless companies bot-tling beverages often have to turn to other industries for their employees. “in the factory it is far too often believed that any problems are 80% due to technical failures and 20% due to operator error. that is simply incorrect. 80% of the problems are operator-related. this means that training is immensely important”, says dr. john brunner, nestlé quality management suisse s.a., of vevey, putting things into perspective. at the invitation of jörg puma, head of krones academy, pet-planet attended one of his workshop sessions, entitled “saving costs and increasing productivity through training”, where more than 30 senior managers from the global beverage industry discussed the “pros and cons” of training. we should say right away that the general consen-sus among big brand owners as well as smaller companies was in favour of training, and was nicely summed up by g. waldmann, head of main-tenance and production technology at the kulmbacher brewery: “train-ing offers the highest potential for increasing plant efficiency”. in these fi nancially diffi cult times it is important to squeeze as much as possible out of production machines, and in this regard the practical semi-nar at krones was given full marks. but this should be done at the right time. levent tosum, technical direc-tor of efes breweries russia made the point: “for me training is at it’s most effi cient when the operator has been working for a while with the machine and has the benefi t of a cer-tain amount of experience”. it was, however, quickly made quite clear to the participants that training the machine operator is not the end of the story. managers too, starting with the line manager and production manager, and going right up to senior corporate executives, benefit from best practice sharing and management training. in particu-lar it is necessary, depending on the management level, for the manager to understand what makes a qual-ity product, how to optimise material usage, etc., as well as understand-ing routine tasks such as change-overs and cleaning - all in addition to his own direct responsibilities in terms of employee management. the group were unanimous in agreeing the need for senior people to understand and be trained in line efficiency. this new manage-ment training line efficiency is now available at neutraubling, germany, johannesburg, south africa, sao paulo, brazil, bangkok, thailand and orlando, usa.

28 petplanet insider vol. 10 no. 07/09 www.petpla.net petproducts new generation plastic material for labels the grupo impresor savasa of san sebastian in spain has launched a new transparent label known as drystick. it is claimed to offer the water and beer indus-tries the ability to achieve the “no label look” without any investment in machinery, and to be cheaper than existing “no label look” solutions. the drystick label can be applied on conventional high-speed label-ers using water-based adhesive. the savasa printing group produces high quality labels using rotogravure print-ing and has been a pioneer in the most important developments of the sector in europe (iml labels, cut & stack labels). at present, the group has 3 production plants, two in spain and one in brazil, and pro-duces labels for the beverage, dairy and laundry industries. the new transparent label is already being used by mineral water company valtorre . nitrohotfi ll to cut costs with the new nitrohotfi ll process krones has brought to market an interesting alternative to conventional hot fi lling. the system is based on the newly developed “relax-cooling” (rc) concept, where the installation of a nitrogen injection dosing feature just before the capper creates a positive pressure of 1.5 to 2 bar inside the bottle. the positive bottle pressure compensates for the shrinkage in product volume downstream of the recooler, thus preventing any bottle deformation due to a fall in pressure. this means that panel design of bottles can be eliminated. the rc process can be used for bottle production in the contiform h stretch blow moulding machine. nitrohotfi ll technology offers material savings with the pet bottle itself, reduced blow-air consumption, enhanced performance in the stretch blow-mould-ing process, and increased output from the line as a whole. relax-cooling (rc) technology also enables the contiform h’s fl ushing air consumption to be sub-stantially reduced. super-lightweight hot-fi ll from graham graham packaging has introduced a new lightweight container, said to be the lightest weight bottle in the smooth-walled, hot-fi ll category, and an ideal match for teas, juices, and isotonic drinks. the new bottle is called the “escape” and represents a major advance in invertable-base technology. after the bottle is fi lled and capped it goes through a “cma” (continuous motion activator), a machine that inverts the base which takes up the vacuum in the bottle and creates a slight overpressure. cma is a signifi cant advance on the active transverse panel (atp) technology, which graham packaging introduced in 2004 to produce the fi rst panel-free hot-fi ll bottle. honest tea, the us top-selling organic bottled tea company, based in bethesda, maryland, is the fi rst customer to adopt the escape bottle. seth gold-man, president and teaeo of honest tea, inc., said. “this is the single largest improvement we’ve ever taken in terms of reducing our environmental impact.” the escape is 6.5 grams lighter than the pet bottle that honest tea was previously using. “it takes fewer resources to make the bottle and fewer resources to transport it”, points out graham’s paul kelley. new single stage machine from jomar jomar corporation (pleasantville, nj) is celebrating its 40th year in the design and manufacture of injection blow moulding (ibm) machines. to mark this milestone, the company has developed a new pet 20 ibm machine designed specifi cally to produce containers up to 60 ml in capacity. the number of cavities is determined by the container size. the pet 20 ibm runs in the 12 million per year range or several shorter runs. the tooling from jomar is designed for quick changeover. the new machine is extremely com-pact and energy effi cient while utilising jomar’s unique vertical plastifi er and accumulator system, which reduces energy consumption.
