ALPS introduces new version of leak tester


isconsin USA: ALPS a global leader of in-line container leak inspection equipment, have released a new version of their successful Speed Glider high speed linear leak tester, called the Speed-Glider 2.5. The 2 station continuous motion leak tester is capable of rates of up to 150 bottles per minute has a container pitch of 178mm and is nominally capable of container heights of up to 127mm for square containers and 158mm for round containers. The Speed Glider 2.5 is offered at an approximately 30% lower cost than previous similar performance models and provides a 25% reduction in footprint compared to the 3 and 4

station models. The machine offers a higher speed, higher efficiency and easier to setup/changeover alternative to “bottle stop” linear leak testers that stop containers ‘on the fly’ using cylinders. The Timing Screw provides positive container handling and control, in order to ensure high efficiencies and quick/efficient changeovers at the higher rate demands. The system can be easily mounted to existing continuous conveyor systems, eliminating the need for additional conveyors and bottle transfers. Cameras for vision inspection can be placed after the leak tester, with the leak tester’s timing screw acting as an automatic spacing device.

Blow moulding range expanded


raham Engineering have broadened their range of accumulator die head blow moulding machinery with new additions in both smaller and larger formats which will allow them to service a larger portion of the industrial extrusion blow moulding market. Graham accumulator head machines are used to process a wide variety of plastic parts and are particularly popular in the automotive and leisure industries for the production of floor panels, seat components, spoilers, coolant tanks, kayaks and playground equipment... In Industrial packaging the machines are used for manufacturing closed head drums, jerry cans and bins Their new small 50 ton clamp machine is available in single or dual

head accumulator configuration with shot sizes of 1.13kg or 2.26 kg with side or bottom takeout options. Included is the ‘award winning’ XBM navigator PC Controller with 100 point parison programming and touchscreen operator interface. The top- end machine is now available with either 34kg or 45kg shot sizing. The larger diameter heads (254 to 762 mm Dia) also utilise the GES spiral diverter technology which ensure fast colour change capability. The clamping unit features motorized roll out allowing for ease of mould change-over, necessary for the large moulds that can be accommodated in the (up to) 2.4M x 1.5M platen sizes The re-engineered range of large machines offer a competitive price entry point with GEC’s renowned rugged engineered designs.
