The hybrid injection units with special HPX screw geometries ensure rapid melting. Color pigments, blockers or other blends can be added homogeneously at high throughputs without subjecting the melt to unnecessary shear forces
The vertical clamping design ensures extremely high plate parallelism and reliably minimizes the wear of the forming components for molds with up to 12 cavities. With its lock-to-lock time of only 2.0 s, the PETForm clamping system is a leading high-performance PET unit.
Thanks to the lightweight gripper unit, maximum process speeds can be achieved with minimal clamping movement. This in turn minimizes energy requirements and production costs.
85% of the required cooling process takes place in the separate 4-stage post-cooling station. This results in significantly lowered cycle times and high output performance.
With their vertical clamping design and an electric plasticizing unit, machines from KraussMaffei are known first and foremost for their high efficiency coupled with excellent availability. The low production costs of manufactured items and a long mold life are testament to this.
This turns PETForm systems into cost-efficient high-performance units that are a reliable solution for the beverage industry. With clamping forces of 1750 kN to 3200 kN and a corresponding modular system, PETForm systems offer the ideal balance between high efficiency and the lowest possible clamping force for mold sizes of up to 112 cavities.
How you benefit: High productivity and flexibility with excellent availability.
