Third Generation of KCC Blow Molding Machine
New Features, New Design
At this year’s Chinaplas, Kautex Maschinenbau GmbH, Bonn, Germany, presented a new model in its successful KCC series of extrusion blow molding machines. This is the third generation of the KCC series, which has been produced in Shunde, China, since 1997.
The new blow molding machine model, which was announced at the Open House event in October last year, represents a complete relaunch of the KCC series. As well as a number of new and revised technical features, the machine has also been completely re-designed, including visually to blend in with the new look we have adopted for Kautex machines.
With its compact form, the new KCC generation takes up less floor space in the production hall. Better accessibility not only makes the blow molding machine easier to service, but also speeds up any retrofitting work. Molds can now also be changed from the side, for example, and products are discharged from the rear of the machine. Greater use of standard modules and components has reduced the investment costs of the new machine and shortened future delivery times.
Kautex plans to introduce the new generation of machines to the market on a gradual basis until the switch-over of the entire KCC range has been completed. “We offer KCC machines for all kinds of consumer and industrial packaging applications as well as for the automotive sector. This high degree of flexibility is precisely why this machine series has enjoyed continued success for almost twenty years”, says Mark Lueddecke, Vice President of Kautex Maschinenbau in Shunde.
