Blow Mold Machine Rebuilds & Upgrades
Maximize Your Investment
Rebuilds & Upgrades by Velocity Equipment Solutions
Whether a machine simply wears out or your production needs change, it’s a fact of life that nothing lasts forever. However…Velocity Equipment Solutions can ensure you get the maximum benefit from your blow mold machinery. If you own an aging machine that cannot meet your current capacity needs, you’re losing money. You don’t have to invest in a brand new machine to meet product demand. Instead, for a fraction of the cost of a new blow mold machine, the professionals at Velocity Equipment Solutions can rebuild and/or upgrade your current machine to match the performance of a new machine.
Experience Gets the Job Done
With more than 30 years of practical hands-on experience in maintaining and upgrading Uniloy, Liberty, and Portola Blow Mold equipment, Velocity Equipment Solutions has the professional acumen necessary to perform total frame-off rebuilds and upgrades. Our team has the talent and resources to make your equipment run better, faster, and more efficiently, providing all the benefits of new equipment without the high price tag.
Consider that many machines built by Velocity 30+ years ago are still in use today.
We know how to build them…and we’re just as talented when it comes to rebuilding and upgrading them.
Uncovering the Possibilities
The first step is to determine exactly what steps are necessary to restore your blow mold machine to peak efficiency. To accurately determine your needs, one of our skilled equipment experts will discuss the condition of your equipment with your operations and/or maintenance managers. Our assessment of your current blow molding system will include:
- A comprehensive and precise assessment of your blow molding system’s current condition
- A detailed list of the corrections and/or maintenance updates necessary to restore/maintain your machine’s best possible performance
- Recommendations on actions that will extend the service life of your blow molding system and/or improve its quality and productivity through specific upgrades and/or rebuilds.
Rebuilding the way it should have been built the first time
It starts with tearing the machine down to the bare frame. We re-machine all critical surfaces. We then sandblast and repaint the frame and any reusable components, such as platens and trimmer bases. Upon completion of the refinishing process, we build your machine from the ground up, applying the latest innovations and technologies: many of which didn’t exist when the machine was originally manufactured. This results in a machine that is built stronger, more dependable, and more efficient than it was at the factory and meets all the current safety guidelines.
