Efficient blow molding with precision sensors

Optimum use of materials are essential in blow molding. Only if the individual materials are precisely processed will tanks, containers or vessels have the necessary characteristics. Maximum quality is achieved with Balluff precision sensors: They ensure exact extrusion of the hoses and allow for the correct structure of multiple plastic layers. This makes it possible to reliably produce containers with acid-resistant inner walls, different wall thicknesses or in various colors. The optimum use of material is efficient and ensures the required product's quality.

Application examples

  • A module for more transparency

    A module for more transparency

    The EtherCAT module 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

  • All movements firmly under control

    All movements firmly under control

    Travel movements at the blow station are under control with Balluff BTL magnetostrictive linear position sensors even if there are vibrations. The high-precision measurement systems have an EtherCAT interface. Because of their contact-free and wear-free measuring principle, they contribute to long machine running times.

    Features

    • EtherCAT interface
    • No homing necessary, immediately ready
    All movements firmly under control

  • Filling beverages on site

    Precise level monitoring, in-process

    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)
