Boasch BLO linear PET container blowing machine
Bosch has launched its BLO linear PET container blowing machine, which has a maximum speed of up to 35,000 containers/h and the ability to handle container volumes from 60 mL to 2 L.
When combined with aseptic filling technologies from Ampack, the equipment can be used for hygienic applications, including dairy-based yoghurt and coffee drinks, as well as mineral water and other beverages.
The BLO was created to minimise PET material use and energy consumption. By rotating the preforms during the heating stage, equal heat distribution on every material surface is ensured, allowing for the production of thin-walled containers.
The company claims the machine produces lightweight containers with the smallest bottle neck rims on the market, which reduces the amount of material required and costs.
With its intermittent motion and step-by-step production feature, the machine heats only a few preforms at a time. This prevents possible product jams during the production process, resulting in reliable operation and maximum uptime.
The product’s linear machine concept and open-machine design facilitate maintenance and operation procedures. The machine enables fast, simple and toll-less format changeovers, as only a few moulds need to be changed in the blow-moulding machine. Other modules and machines can be easily integrated with the BLO machine.
