SIPA of Veneto, Italy, a global leader of Stretch Blow Moulding Machines for the production of PET bottles, have released a new two-stage SFL WM Linear Blow Moulder, designed for wide mouth bottles and containers up to 10 Litre capacity.
The SFL WM is available in two configurations:-
- The SFL WM Fast - has been designed with speed in mind. It can produce containers with neck diameters up to 95mm, and capacities up to 3 Litre, with output rates of up to 6,000 containers per hour.
- The SFL WM Flex - the second configuration is intended for customers who change their containers more frequently. It holds up to four cavities and can make containerrs of up to 10 Litres with neck sizes up to 130mm. Mould changeovers take less than 20 minutes and neck change changeovers take only 40 minutes.
The fully electric, low maintenance machines have low energy consumption achieved with high re-heating efficiency and an Air Recovery System (ARS) with reduced blow air consumption and a corresponding smaller compressor size requirement.
SIPA have drawn on their market leadership wtih high speed single stage wide mouth machines by incorporating thsi know-how in the new SFL design which also incorporates many standard components from their successful SFL linear range of re-heat PET blow moulders.
