Italian machinery firm Amut has since August this year started up two new technical service points in Vietnam and Indonesia, boosting and consolidating a complete onsite support to the existing and potential customers. The firm says it has undertaken this because it has been able to make inroads in extrusion and thermoforming machinery in Southeast Asia.

It is promoting its latest model, AMP 850 GP thermoforming machine that is able to deliver light weight cups for filling with water, with a volume of 220 ml and a weight of 2.5 g. The company says it has been able to secure two important projects in Indonesia with the in-line version of this model, fitting the standard tests for filling and sealing water cups and with an output of 96,000 cups/hour. Reduction of the power and compressed air consumptions is definitely proven.

The highlights of the in line system are:

  • a single screw extruder EA130 40 L/D, equipped with a new screw design reducing the mechanical stress on the PP during the melting process and granting good results on the cup’s impact test and keeping the max output at 800 kg/hour processing with 50% of recycled material;
  • a calender roll equipped with three independent hard chromed polished rolls, with diameter 600 mm with a new concept of internal cooling to guarantee the best heating exchange between polymer and water;
  • the AMP850 GP thermoforming machine with a mould area of 850 x 550 mm and cutting force up to 70 tonnes, equipped with 50-cavity mould off set configuration to reduce the recycled material at only 40%;
  • a pick up stacker capable to reach a production efficiency till 92%;
  • a new in-line grinder composed of a rotor diameter 400 mm and 5+5 blades to increase the cutting frequency and to decrease the power consumption.
  • a software supervisor for an easy and friendly handling of the machine.

The company also says that after two months from the presentation of the VPK-C84 3-stations thermoforming machine during the last Chinaplas show, Amut has finialised two contracts in Vietnam: one for a AMP630 thermoforming machine for the production of PP cups (Ø 85 mm) and the other for a VPK-C84 delivering PP and PET lids with diameter 85 mm and 95 mm.
