Krones Contiform 3 BigBottle

Thursday, 23 September, 2021 | Supplied by: Krones (Thailand) Co Ltd

In order to supply the growing market for large-volume containers, the Krones Group has expanded its product portfolio.

The Contiform 3 BigBottle produces containers with a volume of up to 8 L. Featuring 10–14 cavities, it can produce approximately 10,000 to 16,800 containers/h. It is also able to handle smaller formats from a volume of 2 L upwards.

As far as container dimensions are concerned, a net height of max 380 mm and a diameter of up to 190 mm are possible. Preform dimensions are max 170 mm for net length, max 23 mm for neck finish height and max 53 mm for neck ring height.

Bottlers who want to operate their large-container production in the lower speed range, will find the requisite technology at Kosme as before. The Krones subsidiary’s machines feature four, six or eight cavities and produce containers with a volume of up to 11 L. Linear machines for containers holding up to 30 L round off the portfolio.

As a large-container machine in the higher output range, the Contiform 3 BigBottle closes a gap in the group’s portfolio. Something the stretch blow-moulders from both Krones and Kosme have in common is that they are suitable for handling recycled PET and can be block-synchronised with other machines.
