At drinktec 2017, Husky Injection Molding Systems is demonstrating its HyPET HPP5 integrated polyethylene terephthalate (PET) preform manufacturing system, which is equipped with all-new Multi-Layer technology.

The HyPET HPP5 Multi-Layer system will run for the duration of the show, producing a 17g carbonated soft drink application using a 72-cavity mold and running at 8.7s cycle time.

The system is running a new barrier material, Verian High Barrier Polyester (HBP), which was developed in partnership with Solvay Specialty Polymers. Verian HBP is a recyclable material for PET bottles and films. It is in the final stages of development, with production targeted to begin in the second half of 2018.

"As the vast majority of PET for plastic bottles is processed on Husky equipment we have a responsibility to ensure the technologies we develop, and any influence we have in the design of the package, support sustainable practices," said John Galt, Husky’s President and CEO.

"We aim to minimize the impact PET packaging has on the environment and work together with partners to increase compatibility with existing recycling streams. We are also thinking about the next generation streams, which take the circular economy into mind. Expanding the application range for injection mold plastics in a sustainable manner is both good for business and our environment."

Husky is also highlighting key partnerships with other industry leaders. For instance, it is introducing the Factor 100 bottle, which has been developed in partnership with KHS.

The Factor 100 bottle is an ultra-lightweight 5g package that can hold 500mm in volume, providing a more than 30% environmental footprint reduction by using less material and energy during manufacturing, while still delivering on package performance.

As part of its portfolio of off-the-shelf closure designs, Husky debuted three of the lightest closures available on the market today. These closures contain special design features that maximize Tamper Evident Band performance and have been validated through extensive testing.

Husky also introduced a mixed-reality Microsoft HoloLens experience where participants are able to virtually interact with a life-size model of Husky's HyCAP 4 integrated system for beverage closure manufacturing.

The HoloLens experience allows participants to not only see the HyCAP 4 running, but also walk inside the machine.

drinktec 2017 is currently running until September 15 in Munich, Germany.
