This blows – and that's good
By Canadian Packaging StaffGeneral Bottling Blow moulded bottles PET blow moulding Serac Inc.
Serac launches its PET bottle blow molding machines for dairy products and edible oil.
For several years now, the gap between packaging manufacturing and filling has been diminishing with integrated systems incorporating blowing, filling and capping gaining in popularity.
For Serac, increasing its PET market share in dairy product bottling is key for the Serac Group, a packaging machine manufacturer, has prompted it to try a new direction by launching its own PET bottle blow molding machines for dairy products and edible oil .
The SBL series (Serac Blow Linear) of machines can produce bottles up to five liters in volume at speeds from 2,400 to 12,000 containers per hour.
The machine has been specifically designed to optimize energy consumption. Heating of the preforms is performed at low temperature and evenly distributed using reflecting panels and independently adjustable lamps.
The blowmolding solutions can be configured to fully integrate one of Serac filling and capping units (Combox). A patented bottle transfer system enables to transform the bottle’s sequential motion (linear blower) into a continuous motion (rotary filler).
The SBL series is manufactured in the Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia facilities, given their cutting edge manufacturing capabilities and the teams’ technical expertise. Lean Manufacturing principles are applied to reduce lead times while ensuring quality assembly at competitive pricing.
Less than 12 months were required for the Serac Asia engineering team to design, assemble, test and present the first SBL machine to Serac sales team.
