Preused, Quality Stretchblow Molding Machines maintained at high efficiency levels.

For the production for bi-orientated PET bottles

SIDEL Blowmolding Machine, model SBO20 series 2, manufactured in 2002

Currently in operation: 20 blowstations x 1.500 =30.000 bph), set up to run process preforms with PCO1881-neck finishes.

SIG/KHS CORPOPLAST BLOMAX 6 IIIC preferential heating

A stretchblow molding machine for the production of customized PET-bottles (shapes) for special applications, such as oval bottles for food, cleaning agents and personal care products (shampoos, liquid soap etc.). In particular: cosmetics containers in „exotic“ design for exquisite, high-price products.

BLOMAX 6 series IIIC PH (Preferential Heating), manufactured in 2006

The PH-technology (preferential or „selective“ preform heating) facilitates blowing of non-rotational and exclusive („customized“) shapes.
TECHNOLOGY: the preform is heated from either side in a pre-defined manner by way of the mandrel on which the preform is sitting. The mandrel is locked in guided position. The precision by which this process is managed provides for the specified uniform material distribution.
The precise control of this process is prerequisite for consistent material distribution per design. Result: stable and light weight oval custom bottles/containers with perfect geometry, attractive appearance and cost effectively produced.
A process that promotes products through pefect esthetics in „unbreakable“packages.

This pre-used BLOMAX6IIIC-PH is specially built for the production of specially shaped custom containers. To selectively re-heat the preform at predefined sections of its geometry the rotation is slowed intermittently to achieve the heating profile required for the specially designed PET-container. The transport mandrels are designed for that purpose (see photo at left).
