Jomar Corp. has brought an upgraded
version of its most popular
machine, the 85-S, to K 2022.
The new 85-S GEN II is more of
an evolution, the company said.
The Egg Harbor Township, N.J.based
company focuses on making
faster cycle times or having higher
cavitation within their machines in
their product development.
The 85-S GEN II has a dry cycle
time of 1.8 seconds and uses 40
percent less energy, requires up
to 50 percent less cooling water
and needs up to 40 percent less
hydraulic oil. The new version
also has a bigger transfer head to
include more cavities.
" We've kind of topped out or
maxed out on how fast we can go.
So, this one goes the other way
and starts playing with cavitation, "
said Ron Gabriele, Jomar's
sales and marketing manager. " In
other words, can we fi t more cavities
on this machine. "
Compared to other machines,
which are usually oriented horizontally,
Jomar has created machines
where the barrel is oriented vertically,
which the company said
makes them smaller by 30-40 percent
of the equivalent size machine.
" Our biggest customers are at
the point now that they've designed
their fl oor around the footprint
of the Jomar, " Gabriele said.
Jomar has more than 2,000 machines
in the fi eld, and their biggest
machine is 175 tons. Some
brands that buy from Jomar are
Gerber, Procter & Gamble, Unilever
and Crayola.
Jomar also has a new partnership
this year with Imola, Italy-based
Automa by Magic srl to
distribute extrusion blow molding
machines in the United States
and Canada.
Jomar has background in the
EBM market as it had a sister
company in Italy 15 years ago
where it built EBMs.
" It just seemed natural to us,
because we were receiving so
many EBM calls, " Gabriele said.
" We had a lot confi dence in the
Automa machines and the people
who were working there. It became
kind of a natural fi t. "
Like most machinery companies,
the supply chain has been
an issue. Jomar's components
have gone up about 10 percent,
and they have seen a huge spike
in the price of steel for their
machinery frames. It's gone up
about 70 percent in the last 18
months, he said.
" Part of it is unavoidable; we
did have to raise our prices. But
we did look to absorb at least part
of it, " Gabriele said. " Especially
for our customers that come back
for two or three machines a year. "
Regarding sustainability, a lot
of Jomar customers make medical
bottles and use only use virgin
material. But when it comes
to the other products, Jomar
works to see how much regrind
and post-consumer resin customers
can use.
" What we're fi nding is it's entirely
processable, " he said.
