Will the Jomar IBM process be suitable for my product?
The Jomar Injection Blow Moulding (IBM) is the preferred process for
the production of fully finished bottles with controlled neck finishes,
consistent weight and even wall distribution where higher quantities
are required - usually of over 2 million per year.
How do Jomar support machine sales in distant and new countries?
Jomarís policy for over 30 years has been to use globally sourced
components that are recognized around the world as the highest quality
available for that job. In order for our customers to purchase locally,
we maintain a list of agents for the parts we use so that we can put
you in touch with someone locally, immediately. We also maintain a
considerable inventory of machine components at our service offices,
that can be shipped to our customers in most cases the same day we
are alerted to a problem. We also supply a 2 year spares package that
we have developed to keep your machine in operation at all times.
The service department for IBM machines can be contacted on email@example.com.
How can I contact Jomar Worldwide Sales and Service?
Jomar has representatives for sales & service in most key locations
around the world and, where you are unable to obtain local direct
contact please leave a message on the registration
page and we will get back to you with your local agent details.
For machine problems, contact one of the Jomar offices around the
world for immediate assistance.
can I get process and maintenance training for my personnel in order
to get the best from my Jomar machine?
We invite all of our customers to visit our manufacturing plant during
the machine-testing period for training by your technicians. We also
perform training at our customerís plant at the time of the machine
installation and start-up. On request, we can also arrange training
expressly for a customer at our plant or at their plant.

What is the delivery time for a Jomar machine?
Jomar IBM machines are normally available in 90 days against receipt
of a firm order and deposit. However, if you have an urgent requirement,
the flexibility of the Jomars production schedule may make it possible
to reduce this lead time considerably. Also, we may have development machines
on special offer which are listed under machine sales on this web
How many cavities can I run on a Jomar machine?
In IBM this depends on many factors including the actual
size of the product, the neck size, the material and grade processed,
the required hourly output etc. See Sizing an IBM machine and Maximum
cavitation available in the pdf library. It is necessary
to maintain a specific distance between the cavities to allow for
cooling channels in the mould, which determines the centre distance
needed. The machine model will also dictate the number of cavities
ie: small machine less cavities, large machine more cavities. We would
suggest that you contact one of our sales offices for technical assistance
or complete the quotation form.
IBM - Why a vertical plastifier?
The vertical plastifier has been an integral part of Jomar
IBM machines from their conception and is a low energy, cost effective
system with the ability to process a wide range of materials used
for producing injection blow moulded products WITHOUT CHANGING THE
SCREW! Other screws are available for optimum processing of specific
materials. Full information on the application of the vertical plastifier
are available on a CD.

IBM - Why use overhead hydraulic cylinders?
With over 1000 machines installed worldwide, Jomar know
that overhead hydraulic cylinders give the best engineering solution
for the movement and clamping of both the preform and blow mould platens.
This offers direct clamping pressure to the moulds, where it matters,
and with the Jomar designed floating platen system, there are no side
loads applied to the clamping cylinders. This virtually eliminates
seal wear and the potential for leakage. Tooling alignment is maintained
by the die set -not the clamp for less mould wear.
Can one preform make different bottles?
The preform defines the neck detail, weight and overall
height of the final bottle. Changes to blow mould shape, provided
it fits in the blow mould block width can be accommodated. This can
include slight ovalization, panels and changes to the shoulder area.
With quick connectors it is possible to change a blow mould in an
IBM machine in 20-30 minutes. If alternative bottles are required,
it should be specified at the start of a project so that it can be
incorporated in the mould design.
Can PET be processed on Jomar IBM machines?
PET is being processed on Jomar IBM machines. For your
own specific enquiry, please contact your local Jomar representative
who will advise you in greater detail on this requirement. Visit the
pdf library for further information.
