Krones, Inc: Blow-molding machine

Krones' MouldXpress Advanced reduces the change-over time for molds in their Contiform stretch blow-molding machines, improving the availability levels of the machine.

The semi-automatic system integrated into the blowing wheel shortens the change-over time from about 3.5 minutes to less than 1 minute/blow-molding station. The different mold sets are kept securely in a design-enhanced, human-engineered changing trolley. Unambiguous identification of the molds using appropriately designated compartments reduces the risk of installation errors. A rotating function principle assures the removal position is always the same for the operator.
