Sounds a little strange… doesn’t it !
But the reality is, MODERNA Products nv are known around the world for creating smart plastics for happy pets. Their designs and accessories are used by pets everywhere… from bowls and cat toilets to carriers and gravity feeders and waterers.
Their newest design is a gravity fed waterer with a difference… together with the team from PET Technologies, MODERNA have worked hard to create a feeder that utilises a blow-moulded jar.
Through the specially modified, semi-automatic blow molder UPF-30 they can now create jars with a neck diameter of 120mm and a volume of 0,5 or 1 gallon. By combining this new technology with their existing injection molded bases, they have created the perfect gravity-fed watering system. What’s more the PET jars are fully recyclable… so one jar creates another… helping the planet for future pets… and owners alike.
The UPF-30 was installed at the company’s American plant in Gaffney, South Carolina… to run along-side their existing machines there. PET Technologies technicians were on hand to commission the new machine and to give first-hand tuition to the new operators.
The new machine is now fully operational and just goes to show, that by working together, we can help make, even the wildest dreams of our business partners, become a reality.
A second installation at their headquarters in Belgium is already pencilled-in for the future.
