Plastiblow to demonstrate extrusion blow molding of cosmetic bottles at K 2016
Italian extrusion blow molding machinery supplier Plastiblow will present its full electric machine for production of cosmetic bottles at K 2016.
The PB14-800ED, a double station, servo-driven class A machine with a mold holder stroke 800mm, extruder diameter 100mm plasticizing 300kg/h and a clamping force of 14 tons produces bottles using six cavities per side with 120mm center distance.
The extrusion head has been designed to allow a greater control of the extruded parison and permits even quicker color changes, explained the company.
Two servo-driven axis robots pick up the bottles after deflashing and place them on a linear belt conveyor which sends all the production to a single collection point. Thanks to a new modern design of the machine structure the footprint is now more compact.
The PB14-800/D will be equipped with an in-line quality control device for the bottles, giving the possibility to check and discard any defective pieces. The device will check for micro-holes, deformation and obstruction of the neck, including the detection of sprues.
