US-based Roberts PolyPro has unveiled new high-density polyethylene (HDPE) injection-moulded bottle handles that save up to 25% of source materials.

The fully recyclable handles are designed to provide comfort and strength to the users.

Available in two, three, and multipack configurations, the new handles can be found in any pantone matching system (PMS) colour and are labelled with universal product code (UPC) stickers.

Roberts PolyPro vice-president and general manager Roy Tetreault said: “As volumes rise with the success of a packaged product, Roberts PolyPro has the capability to seamlessly and cost effectively transition a customer from injection-moulded prototype tooling to production tooling and then to flat sheet HDPE handles, the ultimate in cost-effectiveness at high volumes.

“The goal of providing a 360° handle and applicator solution inspired the development of our new next-generation injection-moulded handles.

“Roberts PolyPro is the only manufacturer today that offers both injection-moulded and flat sheet handles as well as applicators.”

The company also provides custom design and prototyping for non-standard handles.

Roberts PolyPro, which is a Pro Mach brand, makes applicators for various level of production, such as semi-automatic, automatic, and high-speed robotic machines.

Pro Mach provides integrated packaging and processing solutions for companies in the food, beverage, consumer goods and pharmaceutical sectors.

Last month, Roberts PolyPro launched a new automatic single bottle-handle applicator, which has the capacity to handle up to 20 bottles per minute.
