The Chinaplas trade fair, the most important in the sector after the “K” trade fair held in Düsseldorf, was held in Guangzhou (Southern China) from the 20th to the 23rd of May. Urola participated in this event for the first time, creating quite a sensation.
In collaboration with the local KINGSWEL company, principle Chinese manufacturer of linear machines for extrusion blow moulding, a rotary machine of extrusion blow moulding for 10 moulds was presented. The machine is built in Europe and is capable of manufacturing 1.5 litre PEHD packaging at high hourly rates.
This is the first edition of Chinaplas in which a rotary extrusion blow moulding was shown in addition to its demonstration of bottle manufacturing. It generated great interest and expectation from the fair’s visitors.
The bottles produced in the demonstrations were made available to the public, showing them first-hand the advantages offered by this system such as reduced weight, uniformity and container quality, as well as reduced energy consumption.
All of this serves to demonstrate the great opportunities offered by the market for this type of technology and the great offerings that Urola brings to the market.
