Efficient blow moulding with precision sensors

Optimum use of material is essential in blow moulding. 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 quality.

  • 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 vibrations occur. The high-precision measurement systems have an EtherCAT interface. Due to their contact-free and wear-free measuring principle, they contribute towards long machine running times.

    Features

    • EtherCAT interface
    • No homing necessary, immediately ready

  • Filling beverages on site

    Fill beverages on site

    The beverage industry uses stretch blow molding machines to produce bottles. If the bottles are filled immediately afterwards, 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)
    Precise level monitoring, in-process
