For the last 43 years, Aoki has provided ISBM machinery to our market. We began with supplying 4-station ASB systems, then 3-station machines which made the most of our unique research and development and methods.

Now, we have developed new technologies that will help reduce investment costs. One of those technologies, which we call the “High Speed Mold Release Molding Method”, will greatly assist production operators and maintenance, and will also reduce energy consumption and their costs. And the system works well for other applications, such as HDPE, PP, Heavy PET and Tritan molding.

Aoki currently has a lineup of more than 10 machines that feature this new technology, and we would love to share how these machines use the latest and greatest in container molding technologies to help customers optimize their business.
