EBS K ERGON rotary stretch-blow moulders
SMI designers have developed a new series of ultra-compact, fully electronic, rotary stretch-blow moulders called ERGON EBS K (the letter K of the name comes from the German word "kompakt"), capable of satisfying production demands up to 9.200 bottles/hour.
The new models are available in 2, 3 and 4-cavity versions, and offer all the advantages of rotary technology in a speed range, traditionally served by linear stretch-blow moulders.
Thanks to high-tech components, minimized maintenance and operational costs and excellent quality/price ratio, the EBS K ERGON series is the ideal solution for the production of plastic containers of different capacities, featuring various shapes, from the simplest to the most sophisticated ones.
Other advantages of this cutting-edge solution are: integration of the preform heating section (tunnel) with the stretch-blow moulding section (carousel) into a single, extremely compact module; slightly rounded safety doors, providing more space inside the machine; motorized stretch rods controlled by electronic drives and thus no need of mechanical cams and Motornet System® for automation and control, ensuring constant maintenance of optimum processing parameters.
Moreover, this solution is extremely versatile since it can be used in several industries: not only beverage, but also FMCG industry sectors, such as detergents, chemical cleaners, cosmetics, pharmaceutical & personal health care products, sauces and condiments. This has been possible thanks to the recent development of preferential heating kit, using a differentiated heating system to heat up preforms, thus allowing the preform to expand in a controlled manner when being blown into asymmetric or non-cylindrical container shapes.
For all these reasons, the EBS K ERGON has been acknowledged as the cutting-edge solution, paving the way to the new age of smart bottling and was chosen in March 2018 to represent Italy in the category “Innovation" of the European Business Awards...
