Launching the BMT Inline Temperature Measurement Device

BMT will be launching a new Inline Temperature Measurement Device at the K-Show for measuring the temperature of preforms within the SBM production line.

Temperature of the heated preforms is one of the most important process parameters, determined by a large number of external variables, such as operator subjectivity, environmental changes, product line changeovers and unplanned stop/starts.  Temperature variations can be a major cause of process faults and product abnormalities, leading to wastage, product deformation and decreased productivity. 

The device will be available to view at our stand for the duration of the K-Show.

BMT will reveal our ground-breaking new temperature measurement device for the stretch blow moulding industry, which advances beyond our current stand-alone THERMOscan3D and proposes multiple innovations in both its technology, application and user scenarios.

THERMOscan3D

THERMOscan 3D is a patented preform measurement device for the ISBM industry. 

THERMOscan is a practical, standalone portable device that can be placed virtually next to any SBM machines capable of ejecting a preform. THERMOscan appeals across the entire supply chain from raw material producers to brand owners, and for challenges from the initial set-ups, through production troubleshooting to production scale-ups. Better understanding of such a key process characteristic is fundamental to solving existing problems and establishing the basis for future innovation and growth.

Instrumented Data Rod

Insight into the mould is paramount for a true understanding on how various parameters affect the blowing phenomenon.

BMT has created an intelligent rod that contains a pressure sensor – for measuring the air pressure development right in the expanding preform, and a load cell – located at the tip of the stretch-rod to accurately measure the stretching force.

The intelligent data-rod allows the mapping of a ‘process fingerprint’ that, along with the rod displacement, offers an unmatched record of the in mould preform development into the fully formed bottle.

PET Material Model

BMT have developed a unique PET Material Model tailored specifically for clients for developing new bottle designs and in-house simulations in the SBM industry.  The ideal application of the PET Model is for clients who have an existing Abaqus license and qualified internal resource.

We continually update our PET Model to exceed our customers technical requirements and expectations. Pricing of the PET Model is based on an annual or quarterly licence basis.

SBM Simulation Software

BMT offer a ground-breaking SBM simulation technology which allows for specific parameters to be assessed virtually without the need for machine time, manpower or moulds.

Our simulation software provides a unique way to breakdown this highly complex process and make it simple, accessible, more cost effective and functionally superior. 

Using tailor-made algorithms, our cloud-based simulation allows the user to input their parameters through a 5-step easy process, which includes bottle geometry, preform geometry, machine parameters, process parameters and simulation parameters.

About us

Company details

Blow Moulding Technologies (BMT) is a technology spin-out company from Queen’s University, Belfast, Blow Moulding Research Group. We manufacture and supply solutions for the Injection Stretch Blow Moulding (ISBM) industry with a primary focus on the manufacture of plastic bottles.  

Our vision is to provide a scientific approach to stretch blow-moulding and help remove the trial and error black art approach that currently exists within the industry.  We develop high technology software and hardware products that reduce energy consumption, optimise setup and increase productivity. 

Our company was founded in September 2011 with our first product - the THERMOscan, a device for preform temperature measurement.  In addition, we offer high-value add-on products which include T-Solver Software, a Remote Trigger, an Instrumented Data-Rod.

We also provide our expert services in Material Characterisation, Preform Characterisation, Material Modelling, Virtual Preform Design and Preview Simulation.  We are continuously expanding our portfolio of products, service and software for the ISBM plastic bottle industry.

Our mission is to ‘provide the latest technological innovations to industry to allow the production of lower cost quality products with minimum wastage while increasing the value of the services they provide to their customers.’ 

Our products and services appeal across the entire ISBM supply chain - including material producers, converters and brand owners.  The customer base for BMT includes major multinational clients within the Injection Stretch Blow Moulding Industry.
