Sumitomo (SHI) Demag (Strongsville, OH) set a word record for bottle-cap production last year, which it is going to try to beat at NPE2015. The company will run a 96-cavity hot-runner mold on an El-Exis SP 420 machine molding a 29/25 water bottle cap with tamper-evident band molded by mechanical slides. Each hour, 180,000 caps will fly by the vision inspection system, or so the company hopes.
