Blow Molding

Economy through optimal material utilization

When it comes to blow molding, Balluff offers you great precision for optimal material utilization. Our products ensure exact extrusion of the hoses and allow for the correct structure of multiple plastic layers. And we make it possible to reliably produce containers with acid-resistant inner walls, different wall thicknesses or in various colors. Our sensors provide an economical solution that guarantees the desired product quality because only exact processing of the individual materials lets you be sure that, for example, tanks containers or bottles have the requisite characteristics.

Application examples

  • A block for greater transparency

    BNI IO-Link block

    The EtherCAT block from Balluff with IO-Link interface bundles the signals from a variety of standard sensors and passes them along to the controller. This solution simplifies the entire network structure and creates transparency down to the last meter.

    Features

    • 8 independent IO-Link ports
    • Integrated display
    • Automatic address assignment

  • Beverage filling

    BTL magnetostrictive linear position sensors

    The beverage industry uses stretch blow molding machines to produce bottles. If the bottles are filled immediately afterward, our high-precision SF fill level sensor controls the fill level during the process. On-site filling can save you transport distances and thereby minimize costs.

    Features

    • Ecolab, 3A approval, IP69K
    • For aseptic processes
    • Safe for sterilization (SIP) and cleaning (CIP)
