Agr International will kick off PET Passion Week during the PETnology conference, held November 9 and 10, 2015 at the NCC Ost congress center in Nuremburg, Germany. Agr’s Georg Wolfe, CTO, will present during the Quality and Process Control session. Mr. Wolfe will discuss the topic of Combining Crystallanity and Material Distribution Control to Re-heat Stretch Blowmolding, where he will provide an update on the continued progress his team is making with regards to bottle performance optimization through the management of material distribution and orientation (crystallinity).
Agr staff will again be on hand to discuss their latest products for quality management and process control for the container industry at PETarena exhibition, stand 4A233. This exhibition is held in conjunction with the Brau Beviale. Featured in Agr’s stand 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 plastic container and glass 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.
