Electric Blow-Molding Machine Produces Canisters

Bekum will premier its EBlow 37 electric blow-molding machine, which combines the basics of the EBlow electric packaging series with the advantages of the BA 34.2 hydraulic canister machine.

Bekum will premier its EBlow 37 electric blow-molding machine, which combines the basics of the EBlow electric packaging series with the advantages of the BA 34.2 hydraulic canister machine. The closing unit and mold-closing function are electrically driven, while servo-hydraulics drive the closing pressure buildup for effective force transmission. With a closing force of 370 kN and a mold width of 700 mm, the hybrid machine is particularly well-suited for canister packaging applications.

Spiral distributor blow heads provide uniform wall-thickness distribution in the preform and the finished product. The heads, which can be easily set from the front of the machine, are said to enable faster color changes than standard designs, resulting in increased machine productivity. Their smaller surfaces also mean less energy is required to heat them.
