As seen in PT

  • Carbonated Beverage Bottle Gets Even Lighter

    Cutting soft-drink bottle weight another 30-45%.

  • Blow Molding at NPE: Pushing the Envelope in Speed, Flexibility, Energy Savings

    New models of blow molding machines at the show were dominated by wheel machines and stretch-blow systems.

  • BLOW MOLDING: Electric Machines Starting to Purr

    Growing use of electric drives in blow molding machinery gathered steam at the K 2010 show, as suppliers rolled out new all-electric and hybrid models for extrusion blow, injection-blow, and stretch-blow production.

  • NPE 2009 Wrap-Up: New Machinery for Blow Molding

    Several new developments include a brand-new compression blow process, the first foamed PET bottles, and a preform decontamination approach for aseptically filled products sold at ambient temperature. Attendees also saw a new stack-mold Multi-Parting Line concept that doubles bottle output within the same machine footprint. (Additional NPE blow molding news appeared in May and June—see Learn More box.)

  • Inline Monitoring System Inspects PET Containers

    A new in-line inspection device called PETView from Krones Inc., Franklin, Wis., monitors the quality of blow molded PET containers before they exit the machine, and any defects are immediately transmitted to a closed-loop temperature controller for correction.

  • K 2007 Blow Molding: Electric Machines Take Hold

    Development of all-electric and hybrid-electric blow molding machines may be gaining momentum, as evidenced by several new models introduced in Dusseldorf.

  • Hot-Fill Packaging: OPP and 'Panel-Less' PET Bottles Grab the Spotlight

    Improved clarity and cost competitiveness, added to its inherent heat resistance, are reviving OPP’s prospects in hot-fill barrier containers. But hot-fill PET containers are raising the bar with higher productivity and ‘panel-less’ bottle designs.

  • What's New at the Show in BLOW MOLDING

    There will be a strong emphasis on energy savings in blow molding machinery at K 2007.

  • Make More PET Bottles in the Same Floor Space

    A new two-stage rotary stretch-blow machine from Krones Inc., Franklin, Wis., offers higher output in a compact machine footprint for production of PET bottles up to 1.5 liters.

  • K 2004 Wrap-Up on Blow Molding: Outputs Keep Rising For PET, OPP, HDPE

    Among the more unusual blow molding developments at K 2004 was a closed-loop control system that monitors and corrects material distribution in PET containers as they are produced.

  • Barrier PET Bottles

    No Breakthrough in Beer, But Juice & Soda Surge Ahead

  • Blow Molding - Higher Output Vies With Flexibility

    The emphasis in blow molding equipment introductions at NPE 2003 is on higher output capability and greater versatility to take on emerging markets.

  • All-Electrics & Stretch-Blow Get Top Billing

    Energy efficiency and production cost savings were dominant themes of the blow molding exhibits at K 2001. A handful of new all-electric machines aroused intense interest, though they are aimed primarily at niche markets. And in two-stage (reheat) PET stretch-blow molding, the focus was on boosting output per cavity.

  • Blow Molding (K 2001 Preview)

    One cluster of blow molding innovations on display at K 2001 will address the need for more versatile single-stage injection stretch-blow molding (ISBM) machines. A thirst for energy savings underlies plans to launch all-electric units for PET and HDPE containers. Also in the limelight are advances in large-part technical blow molding.

  • Prospects Brighten for PET Beer Bottles

    Three hundred billion beer bottles a year worldwide is a mighty tempting target for the plastics industry. So it’s no surprise that 13 of 24 papers focused on beer packaging at the recent Nova-Pack Europe ’99 Conference, held in Germany by Schotland Business Research, Skillman, N.J.
