This September PET Technologies has participated at Drinktec 2017, a leading industry exhibition with record number of visitors. This event is special for us. For the first time ever we showcase the last generation of blow molding machines APF-Max
This event is special for us!
For the first time ever we showcase the last generation of blow molding machines APF-Max with output up to 14000 bph, 0.2 – 3.0 l. Our booth was in one hall with market partners.
The guests are impressed: the machine is totally different!
It is something non-traditional for PET Technologies product range.
When we look at APF-Max blow molder, the first features to mention are its streamline form and B&R controller that stands alone from the machine. It is equipped with the special short-wave near infrared heating system (NIR heating system) that is not a common method for PET blow molding market, though has its competitive advantages. Preform heating is more efficient whilst less kilowatts are consumed.
This model is universal and easy to handle due to several basic features.
Its output can vary between 6 000 and 14 000 bph whereas the bottle capacity starts from 200 ml and increases up to 3000 ml. There are 4- , 6- and 8-cavity modifications with the option to increase the number of cavities once the machine started up. PET bottles with the neck diameter between 18 mm and 48 mm can be produced at the same machine.
Customers and prospects, partners and providers are among our visitors. Many of them are already familiar with PET Technologies blow molding equipment and use it to produce PET bottles. They came to discuss further projects and, of course, to discover APF-Max blow molder.
The machine has been a real surprise for them!
The interests vary.
Some of the visitors were looking for PET kegs and water cooler blow molding solutions, others were interested in PET stretch blow molding machines for various bottle formats. Not to mention PET bottle design and blow molds for linear and rotary machines.
