Jomar Corp. has announced the launch of the TechnoDrive 65 injection blow molding (IBM) machine, a high-speed, high-production version of Jomar’s Model 65, which is the company’s most popular machine size in India and other Asian markets. The company will introduce the machine at CHINAPLAS 2018 April 24-27 (Booth #4.1M06) in Shanghai, PR China.

TechnoDrive 65 IBM Machine

The TechnoDrive 65 has a dry cycle time of only 1.8 sec, a full second faster than the standard hydraulic Jomar Model 65, which is already among the fastest IBM machines in comparable sizes. This high-yield machine further widens the gap and increases Jomar’s lead for delivering the highest output per square foot among injection blow molding machines, the company said.

Ron Gabriele, Sales Manager for Jomar, said:
“The TechnoDrive 65 is built on Jomar’s reputation as a leading supplier of IBM technology to Asia for over 30 years. This next-generation machine captures the efficiency of lightning-fast cylinder movement and other improvements to boost speed by 35% compared to the standard Jomar Model 65.”

Closed-loop Cylinder System

The TechnoDrive 65 uses a closed-loop cylinder system that allows the clamps to move with vastly improved speed and accuracy. The cylinders no longer hammer at the top or bottom of the stroke, which prolongs the lifespan of both the molds and cylinder seals. The closed-loop system works in conjunction with proportional valves to create a smooth, fast stroke that can stop at mold touch and then complete the clamping force required to make bottles.

Carlos Castro, Jomar President, said:
“The advent of the TechnoDrive 65 is a direct result of the success of our IntelliDrive series, which debuted in 2016. They’re both using technologies that reduce the overall cycle time as well as improve the duration of tooling and machine parts. It’s a significant leap forward for the injection blow molding industry.”

Unique Assembly
  • All TechnoDrive machines come with remote access capabilities, which allow Jomar’s service department to connect to the machine via the Internet. 
  • They also have a radial piston motor to drive the plastifier. 
  • This type of motor is 11% more efficient than a standard machine and has extremely efficient volumetric displacement. 
  • It can withstand the rigors of numerous starts, stops, and reversals that are a part of the IBM process.

The main motor of the TechnoDrive 65 has also been replaced with a motor that can generate true 50-horsepower output at 50 Hz, which is ideal for the Asian and Indian markets.

The TechnoDrive 65 can deliver 41 grams per sec of HDPE or similar resin. With a fill time of 5 sec, the machine can accommodate molds that require a total shot size of up to 205 grams. Between the large shot size and lightning-fast cycle time, the TechnoDrive delivers high production at a cost comparable to the standard Jomar Model 65.
