Optima is a family of modern, innovative and very flexible linear blow moulding machines. With more than 15 members (types of Optima machines) , our Optima family offers solutions for most demanding clients. Optima can be answer for a high-speed production (Optima 20 - with nominal working speed 34 000 bph) , medium speed 7000-14 000 bph as well as for low-speed but flexible PET production system which allows to produce small and big bottles on one machine. Special VCN Optima 2 is a new machine available in the series, allows the number of cavities to be intelligently adapted to the product to be manufactured. In practice, this means that 200ml containers and big-volume bottles up to 7L could also be produced on this machine.
Optima machines can be equipped with HOT-FILL kit (for juice filled in 85 C), ultra-clean system (for ESL milk installation ) as well as preferential heating (for complicated bottles with irregular shape).  Compact size of Optima and the discharge of bottles in upright position (ready bottles are transported directly on the air conveyor to the filling machine) gives a possibility to fit a complete line in very limited space. With quick neck format change

main types of  Optima machines:

-Optima 2, Optima 8, Optima 10, Optima 4MAX, Optima 16

Stratos family are automatic PET blowing machines designed for big bottles productions. Stratos 10 is a two cavity machine which can produce bottles from 3.0L to 12L. Stratos 20 is a one cavity machine suitable for containers 5L to 20L.
In these machines closing unit movements, stretching rods as well as closing unit manipulator system are steered by Mitsubishi servo drives which ensure fluent regulation, precise work and high performance of mechanical operations.
Stratos machines are equipped with an Air Recuperation System which ensures low air consumption. After each cycle high pressure air, instead of going to the atmosphere, is transferred to a special container (air recycling) where it is stored and then used again in other processes. SMF also installs a Router – Internet module, which allows on-line analysis through easy access to the machine by the SMF software engineer. The shape and size of the bottle can be easily changed thanks to SMF easy mould change-over system including a special system that utilizes rollers and a mould trolley. An Advanced PLC control with a user-friendly interface allows easy regulation of the system of stretching and heating preforms. Stratos also has a CENTRAL LUBRICATION SYSTEM to minimize maintenance stopovers and ensure the highest standards. Additionally all Stratos machines have an installed UPS system which protects PLC and motion controllers of the machine (optionally is also available Power Stabilizer for servo drives or/and oven section) . In situation of an emergency stop of the machine, UPS minimizes the risk of damage. The machine can also be equipped with a POWER WIZARD™ -solution designed to ensure a stable temperature for the preforms during the reheating process. This system allows to eliminate disruptions resulting from fluctuations of air temperature. For better comfort and easy use of the Stratos machines SMF also offers a preform dumper which are designed to automate the production process. Thanks to this solution, preforms are loaded into a preform hopper automatically. Handling is limited to changing pallets with octabin filled with performs. STRATOS machines meet all the requirements for high quality production of PET bottles at the highest technological level.

HS 6000

HS series are linear automatic blow moulding machines suitable for production of PET bottles 200 ml – 3 000 ml. Thanks to reliable construction, easy operation and maintenance HS series meets all requirements for cost effective production of very good quality PET bottles.

All HS machines are  fully automatic pneumatic machines with automatization of all operations such as preforms loading and orientating. Movements of closing unit and stretch rods are done by FESTO pneumatic cylinders. Chains inside the heating system are moved by electric motors. Preform transportation system is  based on specially designed pins - suitable for  stable work of machine with different neck types like water, carbonated soft drinks, oil or chemical preforms.


Modular construction allows to combine machine sections together on one frame. Through adding of one section (HS3000) or two (HS6000) and more (HS9000, HS12000), it is possible to design machine installation with total capacity suitable for customer needs. Modules can either work fully integrated giving maximal machine’s output, or in case it is necessary any of the modules can be switched off.


HS machines are very efficient machines and can work as stand alone or  as in-line machines connected with fillers via SMF bottles unscrambling units.

Bottle unscramblers & conveyors systems

SB bottle unscrambler is used to provide bottles in upright position to transfer them directly to filling line. Disordered bottles are loaded into bottle hopper and unscrambler puts them into vertical position and moves them on the vacuum/ plate or air conveyor. SMF offers liner "belt type" unscramblers (SB6 and SB10) as well as "pocket type" rotary unscramblers SB20 most suitable for very light bottles.
• Suitable for PET bottles or other type of plastics
• Versatility in running many bottle formats and sizes on same machine – suitable for cylinders, jars, ovals, squares, rectangles, trigger sprays and other oddly shaped bottles
• Cost-saving solution – automation of production process,
• Hygienic process – bottles do not have contact with operators, all bottle contact part made in stainless steel and plastic
• Operational simplicity – no specialized personnel needed &fast and easy format change
SMF conveyors are designed to transfer bottles, jars, cans, boxes and many other products. Depending on customers’ requirements conveyors are available in straight parts or curve parts and may work in horizontal line or with different inclination angle.
For each project SMF prepares unique layout of conveyors to make it suitable for capacity of the line, technical conditions and available space to ensure stable production.
Types of conveyors produced by the SMF:
1) Air conveyors system
2) Combiners/ Adders
3) Plate conveyors system
4) VACCUM Conveyors
5) ROLL Conveyors
6) BELT Conveyors
7) CHAIN Conveyors
8) BUFFER Conveyors / Rotary tables
