The hot runner is a decisive factor in the power capacity of a tool: MHT has been manufacturing hot runners for 20 years and optimally adjusts them to the requirements of the preform production. With Vulcan II, we have now created new hot runner components that make longer standing times, lower energy consumption and longer maintenance intervals possible. More information can be found in our flyer and a publication in PETplanet.
Flyer Vulcan II
National Polyplast India and MHT
The converter is one of India's largest preform manufacturer and an important supplier for PepsiCo. Now National Polyplast (India) Ltd. is expanding its production with two 96 cavity molds from MHT. In an interview, Managing Director Alok Parakh explains their reasons for this.
MHT Test room
An important addition in the MHT test room: The following tools can now be sampled on a Sacmi IPS 400:
32 cavities (pitch 50x130),
48 cavities (pitches 60x152 and 63.5x160),
56 cavities (pitch 50x152),
72 cavities (pitch 60x140),
96 cavities (pitches 50x140, 60x140 and 50x155).
The machine was first presented at the K Trade Fair, where it garnered a great deal of interest at the Sacmi booth.

New Sales Managers
There are some changes in the MHT distribution area: Alexander Plass (left) is moving from project planning to distribution and will be in charge of the Southeast Asian region. Alexander Plass has been working for the company since it was founded in 1996. As a trained toolmaker, he was an important part of the team that set up the modern manufacturing centers before becoming Project Manager in 2011.
Nicole Merkel (right), who had worked as Project Manager and Key Account Manager for MHT from 2006 to 2012, now returns to the team as After Sales Manager. As a mechanical engineer and industrial engineer, she is particularly suited to competently support customers, especially on refurbishments and conversions.
Almost every MHT client knows him: Erich Winkler (left), who has been running the service department for many years. Now he has passed the baton to his successor Rainer Petry and is enjoying his well-deserved retirement.
The transition is assured of continuity, because Rainer Petry (right) has had an influence on all processes as deputy head of customer service and application technology since 2002. A trained toolmaker, he started working for MHT in 1997, first in tool assembly and the hot runner service department. This makes him highly competent in all of MHT's technical areas.
