Wilmington Machinery Unveils New Dual Mold Pallet Molding System


Wilmington’s newest model of its popular LUMINA Pallateer Series of Plastics Pallet Molding Systems, the Model PM-3S, is capable of molding two of the same or two different pallets of sizes up to 52” x 48” and weighing from 16 to 50 pounds each. Hourly production rates of 48 to 72 pallets per hour are achievable with minimal labor, floor space and utilities requirements.

The PM-3S, like the other LUMINA Pallateer Models, is a low-pressure type injection molding machine with a two-stage injection unit. The Wilmington two-stage unit processes 100% recycled plastics in either pelletized or flake form. It injects at mold fill rates up to 20 pounds per second with velocity and shot size control from Wilmington’s unique Versafil sequential injection control system. The result of these features is lightweight and low-cost pallets.

A PM-3S System includes the molding machine, molds, robot and all accessories, plus know-how and training. It is very versatile with capability to mold nestable, stackable or rackable pallets of both one-piece and two-piece construction from a wide variety of virgin or recycled raw materials including blends.

Wilmington Machinery has built pallet molding machinery, general purpose low and medium pressure injection molding machinery and high capacity extrusion blow molding machinery since its founding in 1972. It is located in a modern 65,000 square foot facility in the port city of Wilmington, North Carolina.
