Lower cost, higher quality and productivity, and the potential for extended light weighting are benefits claimed for the continuous compression moulding process for manufacturing preforms.

Imola based Sacmi, which has vast experience in continuous compression molding of beverage-bottle caps and other closures, claims the novel preform approach to PET poses a challenge to the injection moulding preform sector.
