12 Grapes to resume the current year and to welcome New Year 2019

In Spain there is a New Year tradition to eat the 12 Grapes of Luck with each bell strike at midnight of December 31. It is time to make your wishes and summarize the year that has passed.

For PET Technologies team it is also time to outline the most important events of the current year and plan the coming one. Let’s recall the key facts together!

12. At the beginning of 2018, PET Technologies explained how we created a PET bottle. We released a detailed video, which reflects each stage: from sketch development to prototyping and laboratory tests. We can watch it now!

11. PET for PETs. It is a summary of the unique project we developed together with Moderna Product nv, the United States. Our task was to develop a 0,5 and 1,0 l wide neck jar for a gravity fed water. Now they are produced at PET Technologies universal blow molder UPF-30b.

10.The first APF-Max blow molder with output 14 000 bph to produce up to 2 l bottles was launched in operation. It is the 4th generation of SMB machines developed by PET Technologies. There are certain features worth to highlight: easy neck change from 18 to 48 mm, NIR heating system, totally electric configuration.

9. PET Technologies released a new product to the market: a machine to pack empty PET bottles in plastic bags BPM-3000 (3000 bph, 0.2 – 2.0 l). This equipment is an excellent complement to PET bottles production line, including APF-3002 blow molder.

8. Traditionally, we have participated at Milk & Dairy 2018, EXPO PACK Mexico 2018, Agroprodmash 2018, Gulfood Manufacturing 2018. We brought our latest developments. In EXPO PACK Mexico and Agroprodmash we exhibited APF-6004 and APF-Max 8 respectively. Both machines already had their final destination: a bottle making plant in Mexico and a dairy plant in Russia.

7. This May PET Technologies had a debut at NPE2018 in Orlando, the United States. The guests of our booth had an opportunity to see and touch APF-3002 blow molding machine.

6. It was in 2018 when the first PET Technologies automatic blow molder was start-up in the Unites States. The customer acquired PET stretch blow molding machine APF-3002 with output 3000 bph to produce 0.2 – 2.0 L. Now the equipment is in full operation in Arizona.

5. This summer PET Technologies geography extended to Brazil. Our customer BluePET launched automatic blow molder APF-30 to produce 20 – 30 l PET kegs from Petainer preform. Why did he choose this machine? Because of the optimal cost-benefit relation, according to BLUE PET.

4. PET Technologies is getting closer to brewing industry in Mexico. For the first time ever we took part at Cerveza Mexico 2018. We brought our solutions for beer manufactures: a complete line to prepare PET kegs for filling.

3. Traditional BrauBeviale 2018 has turned into first public appearance for a complex to prepare PET kegs for filling. We exhibited a sealing and pressurizing unit. Now PET Technologies supplies a complete line from PET SBM machine to keg leak-testing module

2. This autumn PET Technologies has celebrated the 4th International Conference on modern PET industry trends and innovations. Over 50 professionals from 12 countries of the world arrived to the manufacturing facilities in Chernihiv (Ukraine).The key messages the available on our website.

1. We launched a new corporate website! Feel free to follow our news and be among the first to find out where PET TOUR stops next. Now you can easily find equipment that meets your needs or make a virtual tour to the plant!

Year 2018 has almost passed, but good memories and achievements will last.

May this new year accomplish your goals very fast!

Seasons greetings and Happy New Year!

1+1=12 000

1 + 1 = 12 000 is simple arithmetic to solve complex tasks.

Meanwhile the producers of beverages in PET bottles have several tasks:

  • How to get a filling line for product in PET bottle with the production capacity of 12 000 bottles per hour?
  • How to save at the same time on investment purchasing a blow molding equipment and running the machines?
  • How to implement the project in technically simple, accessible and understandable way?

The capacity of 12 000 bottles per hour is achievable only in case of installment of complicated and expensive rotary blow molding machines, made in Europe or China. The modern practice is that cutting-edge companies offer an interesting solution: combine two linear blow molding machines with the capacity 6000 bottles per hour each. Here they are the necessary 12000 bottles per hour on a single line in your plant! A lot of companies have chosen this solution, and, as the practice has shown, it was the right way.

 The main benefits they managed to get using a similar algorithm are as follows:

  • Easy running and maintenance of equipment;
  • Primary investment saving: two linear blow molding machines are cheaper than one rotor;
  • Equipment maintenance is cheaper;
  • Changeover time reduction;
  • The company doesn´t meet the problem “a blowing unit does not work, what to do?” – One of the two blow molding machines can provide the filing line with PET bottles, though not to full extent;
  • In this case two blow molding machines are combined with the help of air conveyor which serves to move the bottles along the line and storage the packaging between the blow molding and filling nodes;
  • Two molding machines can be placed quite compactly on the territory of the plant blowing 12000 bottles / hour; in other words, 1500 bottles / hour from one cavity (modern European standard);
  • Energy efficiency: during “off-season” one machine can be turned off, and thus the blow station production will meet the needs of packaging market; at this time the second machine can be put to routine maintenance that provides smoothly running during “high” season in the future;
  • It is also possible to transfer one machine into another bottle format / design.

To sum up, we will highlight the main points. Today the production in PET packaging has a ready solution. The successfully implemented projects already operate well basing on it. In these projects the decisions were taken in favor of two linear blow molding machines produced at a high technical and quality level with the use of high-quality components and advanced technology helping  the manufacturers to make efficient investments in their production facilities. The result is smoothly running blow molding equipment and high-quality PET bottle.

PET Technologies specialists have experience and knowledge in implementation of similar projects. We will be happy to help you!

PET Technologies to Install its Blow Molding Machine at Bear Beer Plant

PET Technologies and Bear Beer, high tech and natural, chemical and indigenous, machinery and drink: on first reading, it seems to be contradictory. Is there anything in common?

This is about PET Technologies automatic stretch blow molding machine at Bear Beer bottling plant. The latter is the market leader in Kyrgyzstan and produces over 38 l or, in other words, 25 bottles 1.5 l each per minute, both of soft drinks and beer.  This is where technologies and equipment play a key role.

Not long ago PET Technologies installed and integrated its automatic stretch blow molding machine APF-6004 with the output 6 000 bph for up to 2 l with the filling line of the European provider. The customer has chosen this solution due to the need to produce 9 formats from 0.5 to 1.5 l.

According to Bear Beer representative, they have chosen this blower due to its technical features: easy control and maintenance, low rejection rate, intensive heating system with IR lamps and 8 temperature regulation zones with independent deactivation to form bottles with original shape.

PET Technologies R&D Department also developed 9 mold sets to produce bottles for different types of beverages.

In these terms it is worth to mention the unique beer bottle that looks like a Weizenbier glass full of malt drink with creamy foam. Tastes good and looks attractive? This is all about white plastic cap that fits flush with PET bottle. The bottom of Weizenbier glass, as well as of the bottle, is skinny whereas it is widening out at the top. The narrowest bottle diameter is decorated with Bear Beer corporate logo. On the one hand, such design stands out the product from the similar, on the other hand it is comfortable to handle.

Another mold set provided with APF-6004 blower is to produce 1.5 l bottles for carbonated soft drinks. Sweet cherry and delicious apple, green leaves and bright summer: these are the first associations we have when take a PET bottle decorated with leaves, colorful label and cap to taste the fruit beverage. Such bottle not only looks nice but also meets the design requirements for carbonated soft drink containers.

Bear Beer company is also famous for its mineral water Ala Archa. We can find it  in 1.5 l  unique PET bottles blow molded at APF-6004 machine. The views of the national park decorate the PET bottle and reflect its identity, its fresh air and enchanting landscapes. The natural reserve is situated 40 km from Kyrgyzstan capital Bishkek and is famous for picturesque mountain peaks, rivers and evergreen forests full of bear corners.  Colorful juniper, or Ala-Archa in Kyrgyz language, is among the most common trees.

Synthesis of advanced technology and fruitful collaboration between PET Technologies and Bear Beer Company results in original high quality solutions to enjoy rich taste and get aesthetic pleasure.
