EGG HARBOR TOWNSHIP, N.J., July 26, 2022 –

Jomar Corporation, the leading global manufacturer of injection blow molding (IBM) machinery, has significantly upgraded its popular 85-S machine and will be exhibiting it in Dusseldorf at the 2022 K Show, October 19-26, 2022. The new 85-S GEN II will be featured by Jomar at Hall 14, Stand A32. It boasts servo hydraulics, clamp digital controls, variable frequency drive, and the latest machine controller and color HMI. 

    “We looked at everything on the 85-S and made significant, measurable improvements“ notes Carlos Castro, President of Jomar,. “This includes preform clamp tonnage. To get more production capacity, we went from 72 to 76 US tons and increased trigger bar length from 25.75 to 26.7 inches. Existing customers with 85-S machines can obtain a transfer head to run all their existing tooling.”

     According to Ron Gabriele, Jomar’s Sales and Marketing Manager, “The improvements in production capability should please customers. Improved dry cycle times of 1.8 seconds are 30% faster than the closest competing machine. The 85-S GEN II also consumes up to 40% less energy, requires up to 50% less cooling water, and needs up to 40% less hydraulic oil.”

     The IntelliDrive 85-S GEN II integrates an extremely precise open/close digital system that prolongs cylinder life. It also reduces the closing impact of the press on tooling, extending mold life.

     “If you are looking for the best IBM machine for your increased production needs, the 85-S GEN II is it” says Castro. “What’s more, Jomar backs it with tooling and turnkey capability plus superior support – training, spares, and service.”  

     Jomar is the world’s leading manufacturer of injection blow molding machinery for the pharmaceutical, health care, personal care, beauty, food, beverage and household products markets. Some of the world’s most recognized brands such as Gerber’s, Crayola, Merck, P&G Unilever, Avon, Gerresheimer Group and Goya have chosen Jomar to handle their packaging needs. More than half of the injection blow mold machines in use throughout the world today were built by Jomar.
