Three-cavity all-electric unit L32
Convertible PET reheat line for blow molding
W. Amsler Equipment Inc., Richmond Hill/Kanada, has expanded its line of convertible machines with the introduction of the L32 reheat stretch-blow molding machine. The three-cavity all-electric unit meets the high-output needs of custom blow molders of Polyethylene terephthalate (PET) containers with small to medium size requirements. For custom blow molders, the three-cavity machine offering production of up to 40 million bottles per year.
The system is hydraulic-free and features servo-driven electric stretch rods rather than the pneumatic type. At a rate of 3600 2-l bottles per hour, the machine produces 50% more 2-l containers than a two-cavity unit. It can also be used to run one-cavity and two-cavity molds for production of 5-l and 3-l containers, respectively. Neck sizes range up to 48 mm. The unit employs the same oven configuration as a two-cavity except that preforms can be spaced closer together, thus offering greater heating and more energy efficiency than a two-cavity. The machine has a 30-ton servo-driven mold clamping system and a servo preform indexing system. An air-recovery system and hot-fill capability is also available.
