“We use (PDC) Model 75s to apply neckbands to our 2, 5 and 12. oz. pepper sauces. We recently bought a system – our fifth – for miniatures. The original four systems have operated since 1990. We bought them for performance, and speed; systems run 300 bottles per minute. We also wanted to keep the parts inventory interchangeable. Todd Smith, in parts, has always worked with us to get the best service life. Recently, he recommended hardened blades to cut the PETG films we need for shipments to certain countries. PETG is abrasive, and we wanted a longer service life from these movable blades, without sacrificing the stationary blades.”
