Niigon Machines™ has set up a demonstration site for unattended PET preform production to highlight the research, consulting, and industrial design services Niigon can offer its customers.
There are two systems in the Lightsout™ cell. A 24-cavity 150-ton has been operating 24 hours a day without a night-shift attendant and has produced more than 8 million preforms without a single rejected part. A 72-cavity 300-ton system is also running unattended.
PET LIGHTSOUT™ Development Projects:
- Auto start-up and shut-down
- Cycle completion
- Emergency shutdown
- One-hour mold change
- Cost of ownership
- Energy consumption
Niigon Machines applies its expertise to help customers develop streamlined factory automation and production processes. Niigon Machines also offers consulting and industrial design services for factory automation and engineering processes.
