Auburn, NY Currier Plastics has recently added three Automa extrusion blow molding machines. They have added (2) AT400D and (1) AT700D machines that feature in-process trimming capabilities (dome, moil, tail and handle punch out) increasing their overall blow molding capacity.
These new investments are valued at $ 1.75 million and significantly increases the custom molder’s ability to produce both higher volume and larger sized container programs. Adding the multi featured Automa’s will have a positive impact on the processing throughput and is another example of the molder’s demonstration of their V² philosophy. V² is pronounced V Squared and is defined as Value x Velocity-the speed or true velocity in everything they do multiplied by superior value that incorporates total quality, operational efficiency and established organizational core values.
