KHS has introduced technology that can produce PET containers up to 2.5 L with a clip-on grip. Here, the company says, bottlers are set to profit especially from the great reliability of the established stretch blow molder.
The innovative KHS process is said to be easily integrated into the new InnoPET Blomax Series V. Through its holistic Bottles & Shapes consultancy program, the company also helps its customers to develop customized, sustainable containers.
The company’s active molds differ from conventional blow molds in that they are equipped with two additional moving mold elements.
These can be activated pneumatically to form mounting points for a stable grip on the container during the stretch blow molding process.
The handle grip is clipped onto these two points later on in the process.
