Bekum Blow Molding Machines Helping Apex Grow

Bekum Blow Molding Machines Helping Apex Grow

2014 was a record year for us at Apex Plastics.  Not only did we finish an expansion of the plant, built a new office building, and added a sales manager position, but we also had a record sales year.  One issue we thought we could potentially run into is being able to keep up with the orders.  Because of the investment we made in two Bekum H-155 extrusion blow molding machines with MTM Systems 2001D takeout and de-flash stations down-line, we were able to keep up with our orders and also have the capacity to grow more in 2015.

These components offer precise, optimized machine control for high speed production with up to 8 cavities, which increases productivity and virtually eliminates downtime. Staying ahead of the competition and utilizing the latest technology has always been our goal at Apex Plastics. An added option was the de-flash station to remove scrap flash from trigger sprayers, handleware, or other non-captive blown bottles.

Bekum’s H-155 extrusion blow molding machines are capable of producing a variety of products, from small bottles to large handleware.  With multiple heads available, Apex Plastics is able to produce a wide variety of bottles and containers in various sizes and cavitations.  Currently Apex Plastics has the following head spacing available:  4 x 100 mm, 4 x 85 mm, 3 x 125mm, 3 x 115 mm, 3 x 100 mm, and       2 x 140 mm.

At Apex Plastics we strive to offer you the best in quality and customer service.  The Bekum blow molding machines are allowing us to grow at a rapid pace while still offering the best in quality and customer service.  With the addition of the H-155’s we have a total of 10 blow molding machines, offering plenty of capacity to help you with your next blow-molding project.
