The ASB 650EXHD machine, manufactured by ASB, has been hugely successful for high quality and economical manufacture of 20L (5US gallon) returnable / refillable water bottles in a range of molding materials. Apart from the water industry, it has been frequently utilized for virtually any application requiring very large containers such as edible oil, agrochemicals, the biotech industry, and technical moldings.
Similar to its sibling the ASB-650EXHS, the ASB-650EXHD utilizes twin injection units to allow molding of large and heavy containers with double the molding output.
While its design concept can be traced back to the origins of Nissei ASB, the machine utilizes state-of-the-art electronics and hydraulic systems to provide smooth and repeatable operation with low energy consumption.
Depending on the container size to be molded, configurations of 2 or 4 cavities can be used by a change of the mold set.
Moldable materials include Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET), Copolyester (Tritan), Polycarbonate (PC), Polypropylene (PP), Polystyrene (PS), Polyethylene Naphthalate (PEN), Polylactic Acid (PLA), and many others.
Moldable shapes include; Round, non-round, wide mouth, inserted handles etc.
