Presentation topic:

Manual vs. Automated Process Control –

Prepared for the Future?



The reheat stretch blow molding process has advanced significantly over the past quarter century.  Production speeds per cavity have increased tenfold.  Material processing weights are reduced to a similar degree. 


Use of recycled materials is on the rise.  This high speed, light weighted, rPET process is no longer a fit for antiquated manual process control methods.  Manual processes (both process control & quality assurance testing) will lead to lower productivity, thereby lower your profitability. 


Think Process Automation – which delivers increased factory productivity by streamlining the processes, lowering running costs, delivering higher quality and higher production speeds.
