The machines will produce proprietary and stock PET bottles for custom applications. The six-cavity machines produce up to 7 bottles/hr and enable Grafco to mold lightweight and oval bottles. With the Sidel machines "we can quickly produce a variety of bottles which is vital for our customers" says Tom Frank Grafco's vp of operations. The Baltimore facility also added an injection-molding unit from Husky Injection Molding Systems (Bolton Ontario Canada). The Husky unit says Grafco uses pre-engineered preforms that can produce six to eight bottle designs.
