Hemingstone will also debut its H1100TR high-speed, fully automatic, coreless bag maker. It features a special knife and cutter design that can produce four rolls of 50 t-shirt bags a minute (200 punches/min). Fong Kee International Machinery (, represented by Hollo Plastics Equipment Inc., Northfield, Ohio) will show off new extrusion and blow molding systems. In extrusion, the company has a new screw and controls for a sheet line producing 350 meters/min. In blow molding, Fong Kee will intro- duce a smaller, high throughput, multi- head machine based on its HBA continu- ous- extrusion series. The new model is designed to mold shampoo bottles under 1.5 liter. There's also a new control sys- tem that allows for remote machine con- trol through a secure internet link.
