Sometimes, Machine vendors describe North American-based bottle blow molders as a justly conservative lot, glad to stick with their accustomed injection blow presses and hydraulic shuttles. In the meantime, more effective fully electric alternates have become very popular inside Europe and are rising in Asia and other regions. But the sales figures indicate that American blow molders are eventually welcoming all-electric machinery.
An Auburn-based plastic fabrication company's official stated that we had had great success with every all-electric molding machine, and that is all we will purchase from now on. So the plastic fabrication company found it logical to find similar effective enhancements in fully electric blow molding. Its initial step was to buy all-electric blow molding machinery from all-electric molding machines dealers. The experience of that Auburn-based plastic fabrication company with that machine over the past year and a half has made it emphasizes all-electric blow molding machines.
The Auburn-based plastic fabrication company is a pioneer of all electrics on the coasts. Interviews with three major suppliers of all-electric injection blow and extrusion blow machines in North America indicate that approximately six such pieces of machinery are situated in North America. The other few are delivering or are on order. The vice president of sales of a Michigan-based machining manufacturer states that most local extrusion blow molding machines seem content with conventional hydraulic pieces of machinery. The modular platform of that machining manufacturer permits electric servos or hydraulics on the identical basic press.
The Michigan-based machining manufacturer has supplied all-electric blow molding machines but has not promoted them very hard in the North American continent until recent times. This Michigan-based machining manufacturer launched its first electric blow molding machine that employs local parts like controls, actuators, and servo motors. After displaying at the show, the Michigan-based machining maker operated its electric blow molding machine for two thousand hours to carry out an engineering assessment. This month, the machinery is moving to the plant of an American customer to begin commercial production. According to the vice president of sales of a Michigan-based machining manufacturer, a customer's motivation is partially a requirement for extra capacity, partial inquisitiveness to examine something new, and partly a wish to establish a business partnership with the Michigan machining manufacturer.
The vice president of sales of the Michigan-based machining manufacturer states that power savings are not a reason compelling American blow molders to carry investment in fully electric machines. The real advantage, he says, is greater repeatability and accuracy. European blow molders, he states, were more open to newly introduced technology as the electric utility expenses are much greater there. He said in Europe that more than fifty percent of the shuttle machinery sales are fully electric. The vice president of sales of a German fully electric blow molding machine manufacturer's North American branch states that the sales of electric blow molding machines are slowly rising in North America. He stated that bottle manufacturers had had sufficient capacity in recent times, and therefore they have been hostile to capital expenditure, apart from those few that were increasing capacity.
The vice president of sales of the German fully electric blow molding machine manufacturer's North American branch agrees that the higher electric expenses have made businesses accept electric blow molding machines in Europe. He states that the sales of full-electric blow molding machines are rising in China because of their faster cycles and power savings. In China, the vice president of sales of the German fully electric blow molding machine manufacturer's branch in North America sees a weather change. He states a couple of fully electric blow molding machines are working in North America, more are being shipped, and two are being ordered. He anticipates that the electric blow molding machine sales will double as bigger companies will give ten orders of electric blow molding machines in the next year.
Although power cost is seven to ten percent of the cost of the bottle, the major benefit in the local market is repeatability and accuracy. The vice president of sales of the German fully electric blow molding machine maker's branch in North America also states that dry machine cycles are fifty percent speedy with new electric blow molding machines. Their entire processes are at least ten percent faster. The Auburn-based plastic fabrication company anticipates increasing energy efficiency by launching more fully electric blow molding machines to injection and blow molding departments. Its official expects its energy efficiency to enhance as it uses more fully electric injection molding and blows molding machines. That official believes it would be challenging for the Auburn-based plastic fabrication company to justify buying the fully electric blow molding machine on energy cost reductions. The savings will come from decreased upkeep downtime and better quality components due to enhanced machinery accuracy.
