Ever since polyethylene terephthalate (PET) became the most accepted medium to pack a wide range of products, the consumer goods sector as well as the pharmaceutical industry got a shot in the arm. They could reach out to the target buyers with their products packed in attractive manner and longer shelf life. Simultaneously to meet the needs of the hour, the packaging industry too has made great strides on all fronts. In these progressive trends, the blow moulds manufacturer in India has played a pivotal role.
All these developments took place amid a sort of boom that the country had never seen before. It opened up new vistas for entrepreneurs to learn about PET technology and process to set up units in making preform moulds of varied cavities. Alongside, the demand for moulding machines also rose. Capitalising on this scenario, leading manufacturers of these machines from abroad made their presence felt in India.
For instance, the Japanese giant Nissei ASB Machine Company even went a step ahead by commissioning a factory at Ambernath in Maharashtra. It is one of the most modern and largest manufacturing facilities among PET processing machine manufacturers in the world. Apart from catering to the domestic market, the ASB machines manufactured here are exported too and thus earn precious foreign exchange.
These machines are in great demand for products such as edible oil, shampoo, liquor, water, mouthwash, cosmetics, detergents etc. For the items that are packed in wide mouth jars, these blow moulding machines are deemed to be the best.
However, the specific moulds for these machines must be of highest quality at par with the Japanese standards. Consequently, this has encouraged the Indian PET preform industry to master the expertise in designing and manufacturing blow moulds for ASB Machines. Reportedly, ASB has created a global impact for its machines intrinsic worth such as:
- Compact size
- High quality bottles
- Rapid mould changeover
- Computerised memory for storage of varied moulds
- Cost & energy saving
