SIPA, a PET preform and bottle production technology specialist, is showing one of its latest XFORM preform injection moulding systems. On its stand is a single-stage injection-stretch-blow (ISBM) moulding system, SIPA T80. SIPA is sharing its stand with Athena Automation, its partner in the development of the XFORM 300 and the smaller XFORM 150. The XFORM 300, which has an electrically-driven two-platen clamp unit, accepts moulds with anything up to 96 cavities. At the show, it will be equipped with a 72-cavity preform mould, produced by SIPA’s own mold-making operation at its headquarters in Vittorio Veneto, Italy.
