A linear blow molder from Sidel produces flat bottles and complex shapes in PET, at speeds to 5,600 bottles/hr. Uses a Compact™ Preferential heating system, and permits fast changeovers with minimal down time.
Preforms move down a track and into the enclosed blow molding area. Finished amber bottles then undergo internal coating (not shown here) and are stored on pallets until needed. Blow molding equipment is supplied by Sidel.
