Jomar Stresses Process Development in Making Sure Its Injection Blow Molding Tooling is Ready to Run

PLEASANTVILLE, NJ--(Marketwire - Jun 4, 2012) - Increasingly, customers are turning to Jomar Corporation for tooling, as well as for the company's injection blow molding machinery. William A. Petrino, President of Jomar, sees the reason as the company's emphasis on process development, "The tool is the heart of the process and therefore must be correctly developed."

In most instances, a new production tool, when run for the very first time, will produce containers that do not meet with approvals. Inevitably, there are adjustments that have to be made to achieve the correct dimensional stability, consistent wall distribution, and shot-to-shot repeatability. Temperatures, pressures, and speeds all have a direct effect on parts quality. It can take weeks or even months to reach the optimum process. Molders know that no definitive "how to" guide or instruction manual on the injection blow molding process exists, only general guidelines.

A do-it-yourself approach to tooling means countless hours spent hunting for the right combination of molding parameters. It means committing key people to stand in front of a machine for days trying to pinpoint essential process data, while likely spending excessively on wasted resin.

Customers who order tooling from Jomar can be assured of the following: process development by experienced and trained technicians working in concert with Jomar's on staff tool designers; properly conducted unit cavity testing; full testing of production tool unit until approved by the customer; and finally, delivery of a tool that is ready to run.

Jomar is a global manufacturer of injection blow molding machinery for the pharmaceutical, health care, personal care, beauty, food, beverage and household products markets. The company manufactures injection blow molding machinery in capacities from 20 tons up to 175 tons. Jomar engineering services help customers design both products and molds, including turnkey systems. The company also offers refurbishment of older Jomar machines.
