Jomar’s M-175 Is World’s Largest Injection Blow Molding Machine

Jomar Corporation, Pleasantville, NJ, USA-headquartered maker of Injection Blow Molding (IBM) machinery, has developed the world's largest IBM model that has as its emphasis, space, energy, and maintenance savings. The M-175 machine features 175 tons of perform clamp, giving you the ability to run high cavitation molds using standard Injection Blow Molding approved resins. However, several key design features make it smaller and more efficient than comparable capacity systems.

The M-175 IBM machine is surprisingly compact. It offers a small footprint, a shut height of 10-14" (254-355 mm), and a maximum trigger bar of 49.25" (1,250.9 mm). The latter is a package that maximizes cavitation for smaller products on larger machines. Also contributing to the smaller footprint is use of a vertical plastifier that is the main reason that the M-175 uses significantly less energy in processing. Jomar has also engineered the M-175 to have fewer parts, resulting in less maintenance costs and increased uptime. It complies with all ANSI, OSHA, EC, and SPI safety standards.

Like all of Jomar's IBM series, the M-175 produces higher quality containers through its integral microprocessor control -- more uniform weight and wall thicknesses, more precise neck tolerances, greater impact strength, more consistent color, and glossier finishes. It produces a bottle in a single three-station operation with no need for trimming or deflashing. This absence of scrap eliminates the need for regranulation equipment. One multi-cavity IBM machine can typically replace two extrusion models.

In addition to supplying machines, Jomar assists interested customers with a world-class tooling development program, starting with an idea or an actual product and bringing it to completion. Jomar can furnish the design, conduct unit cavity testing, supply samples from the production tool, and offer start-up services in the customer's facility, as well as operator training.

Jomar Corporation is a global manufacturer of Injection Blow Molding machinery especially for the pharmaceutical, health care, personal care, beauty, food, beverage, and household products markets.
