Technical innovations in the blowing of PET containers
SMIGroup has recently launched the new generation of rotary stretch-blow molders, offering a series of important innovations:
- new preforms heating module (oven), with the preforms mandrels pitch reduced to 40mm; thanks to the new oven the machine output is increased by 20%, as compared to the previous models;
- new electrical panel, totally integrated in the blow-molder frame, thus eliminating the need of connection cables between the machine and the electrical panel and reducing the machine overall dimensions.
Closer and closer to the customer
With more than 3800 packers and blow-molders installed all over the world, SMIGroup is considered as a world leader in the packaging sector.
In a market in continuous evolution, SMIGroup has spread its presence in the most important Asian Countries, with branches in Thailand, China and Australia.
