Featured at this years’ show will be the Process Pilot® automated blowmolder management system. The Process Pilot in conjunction with Agr’s Pilot Profiler® system interface with the re-heat stretch blowmolder to provide precise material thickness distribution management and defect detection for PET bottles while offering hands-off blowmolder control. With the trend towards ever lighter bottles, the Process Pilot is the ultimate light-weighting tool. This system offers bottle producers the ability to aggressively light weight bottles to the absolute minimum while providing the confidence that material is distributed appropriately. The Process Pilot system makes it possible to produce consistent, high-quality bottles on a 24/7 basis regardless of operator skills, environmental changes and preform variations. This product offers a number of benefits that include overall improved bottle quality, reduced variation in top load and volume, as well as production efficiencies that can significantly decrease scrap and incidences of downtime in the blowing operation and filling line.
In addition to the Process Pilot system, Agr offers a full line of quality control and process management products for rigid container packaging that are designed to help container producers, converters and fillers stay competitive while meeting the increased quality demands of today’s changing world.

As an industry leader for over 85 years, Agr is committed to provide the container industry with the most technologically advanced products available for quality control and productivity improvement.
