Tim Womer has formed a consultancy to help machine manufacturers, processors and others.

The focus on plasticizing is no surprise as before forming his own business, Womer had held the position of chief technical officer for screw and barrel manufacturer Xaloy Inc. He joined Xaloy with the company's acquisition of New Castle Industries Inc. in 2003. Prior to that, he served in leadership positions in engineering and R&D at Spirex Corp., Conair, and NRM Corp.

He has also served as an independent consultant in plastics process engineering, and is now returning to those consulting roots. TW Womer and Associates LLC is based in Edinburg, PA. "Being brought up in a self-employed environment, I again have the opportunity to pursue a business of my own," said Womer in a statement. "This gives me the opportunity to work with a variety of clients in different areas of plastics and allows me to be more creative, which is what really motivates me."

Womer has held top positions and has received several awards within the Society of Plastics Engineers (SPE), and served as president of SPE for the 2006-2007 term and chair of the SPE's Extrusion Division in 1999-2000. He has also served on the Executive Committee of the Society of the Plastics Industry's National Plastics Exhibition (NPE), and is part of the NPE 2012 Educational Committee.

One of Womer's first customers is blowmolding machine and single-screw extruder manufacturer R&B Plastics Machinery LLC (Saline, MI), which he will serve as its chief process consultant. "We are pleased to have Tim Womer working with R&B's engineering, sales and manufacturing staff.  His responsibilities will include process consulting and screw design," said Al Hodge, president of R&B Holdings LLC, which includes R&B Plastics Machinery. R&B is launching its own line of trademarked MAX Impact feed screws to complement its machinery lines.             

At Uniloy (Batavia, OH), the blowmolding machinery manufacturing division within Milacron LLC, Greg Petrillo has been appointed to the position of business unit manager, industrial blowmolding for Uniloy's North American operations. In this position, he will report to Dave Skala, VP & GM, Uniloy NA.
 
In a related move, Uniloy has restructured its sales coverage for Uniloy's industrial (accumulator head) blowmolding machinery, shifting its North American sales coverage from contract sales agencies to its internal sales staff. Rich Smith, director of commercial operations, Uniloy NA, will have direct responsibility for selling the product line with Marty Dailey, Vic DellaMea and Ricardo Gonzalez in their respective sales territories.  
 
Petrillo joined Milacron in 1977 as a field service technician for injection molding and has spent the ensuing 33 years working across all three of Milacron's plastics machinery businesses. Most recently, he has served as Uniloy's industrial blowmolding service manager.
 
Milacron also this week announced changes within its sales force for its extruder and injection molding machinery operations.
