Confer Plastics modifies equipment to make a larger machine

30pound
You could say we’re expanding through modification. We’ve had a dual-head machine that had shot sizes of 15 pounds. That machine could only do so much — at Confer Plastics everything we do is big, that’s what separates us from the rest of the blow molders in North America. So, to capitalize on our strengths, our great technical and maintenance department modified that machine and transformed it into a large-part machine, now capable of making parts up to 30 pounds in weight. The modified machine, which in essence has become a “new” machine, will begin its first production run today. I suppose you could say our motto around here is “go big or go home.”
