A longstanding Italian manufacturer of blow molding systems, Magic now has a footprint in the United States. The company’s new plant in Whitmore Lake, MI, about 50 miles west of Detroit, is fully operational, the company recently announced. A centerpiece at the facility is the company’s next-generation extrusion blow molding machine.

Based in the northern Italian town of Besana, Magic has more than 60 years of experience developing blow molding systems. It embraced all-electric machine technology in 1997, when it first came on the scene, and completely abandoned the production of hydraulic machines in 2014. More than 1600 of its all-electric blow molding machines are currently in operation worldwide.

Compared with hydraulic systems, electric machines consume 55% less energy and slash maintenance costs by as much as 70%, said the company.

Magic invites potential customers to visit the Michigan facility and see its next-generation all-electric extrusion blow molding machine in action. Features of the dual-station ME T14-600-D include:

  • 15.4-ton clamping force

  • 600-mm carriage stroke

  • single parison head

  • automatic internal deflashing with pick-and-place bottle standing system

  • scrap conveyor

  • conformity with UL 508A

  • compatibility with heads with a maximum c/d of 2 x 270, 3 x 180, 4 x 130, 5 x 105, or 6 x 85 mm

Magic can provide local technical and remote support and machine training is available. Spare parts are kept in stock.
