SIPA releases new rotary PET blow molder with compact design

SIPA, a manufacturer of stretch blow molding machines for the production of PET, PLA, OPP and multilayer bottles, has released a new rotary blow molder to their existing range.

The SFR 6 EVO, which can produce up to 13,800 bottles/hour, is the smallest version in its rotary range, with six blowing cavities.


The new compact model features a preform alignment system inside the machine and a vertical mold opening that ensures maximum simplicity of preform/bottle transfer wheels and the lowest peripheral speed in the market.

Handling of the preforms is performed by a technopolymer transport chain, with the neck up heating and with very simple and low speed movements.

The heating oven features great process flexibility and can be used to produce high quality containers as well as hot fill containers of various shapes.

The company said that the SFR 6 EVO can produce extremely lightweight and complex containers such as a 1-litre container, weighing only 16g utilizing preforms which determine a total stretch ratio of 18, producing a speed of 2,200bph per cavity.
