NPE2018 PRODUCTS ON DISPLAY THURSDAY NPE 2018 : THE PLASTICS SHOW SHOW DAILY WE CONNECT PLASTIC EXPERTS. The plastics industry has a new global player. Just formed, Westfall Technik is combining core competencies across an international group of plastics experts. Their goal is to provide highly efficient, highly productive manufacturing solutions to serve the medical, packaging, and consumer goods market spaces. FOR IMPROVED TIME TO MARKET. WESTFALL-TECHNIK.COM Drawer Magnet Can Take the Heat Bunঞng Magneঞcs Co. | Booth W5563 Seeking to serve customers that increasingly want to run high-temperature plasঞcs, Bunঞng Magneঞcs Co. is introducing a drawer magnet rated to 350°F. Bunঞng says the FF 350 Hi Temp Drawer Magnet can work with molding machines running higher temperatures without impacঞng the efficacy of the rare-earth magnets the system uses, which can be damaged by elevated temperatures. The Hi Temp FF drawer is typically in- stalled above the molding machine's feed throat and resin passes through the drawer to remove ferrous contaminants, ensuring a cleaner product while protecঞng downstream equipment from tramp metal. In applicaঞons where the resin needs to be dried above 300°F, for instance, the magnets will be sub- jected to higher temperatures because of their locaঞon. Bunঞng also upgraded the viewing window on the drawer as well as the knobs that latch down the drawer to a higher temperature material. Because the Hi Temp FF Drawer Magnet's housing design is the same as Bunঞng's stan- dard FF, the drawers and accessories can be purchased independently to complement the exisঞng housing, allowing exisঞng customers to upgrade their equipment. bunঞngmagneঞ | (316) 284-2020 Husky Highlights PET Preform and Hot-Runner Technologies Husky Injecঞon Molding Systems Ltd. | Booth W1303 Husky Injecঞon Molding Systems is devoঞng its 12,000-[ 2 booth to a range of technologies for beverage, food, closure, medical, automoঞve, home-care, personal-care, and beauty-care mar- kets.

Husky is also showing PET boles made from its preforms with "never-before-seen colors, shapes and funcঞonality," the company claims.
