Agr International to feature PET bottle lightweighting system at Pack Expo

Agr InternationalThe system offers bottle producers the ability to aggressively lightweight 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.

Reported benefits include improved bottle quality and reduced variation in top load and volume, as well as production efficiencies that can significantly decrease scrap and downtime in the blowing operation and filling line, Agr explained.

In addition to the Process Pilot system, Agr noted that the company offers a full line of quality control and process management products designed to help rigid container producers, converters and fillers stay competitive while meeting increased quality demands.

Pack Expo comes to Las Vegas from September 28 to 30.
