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.
