    Blow-moulder-filler block for non-carbonated water Contiform Bloc BF-C

      Blow-moulder-filler block for non-carbonated water

      Well thought-out block philosophy

      The Contiform Bloc BF-C promotes block technology decisively. How that? It represents the block concept with a determination that is unrivalled. Not only does the Contiform Bloc BF-C combine individual machines, but it also is designed as a holistic system with one central unit each for the control system, the drive and the operation.

      Focus on the essentials

      The Contiform Bloc BF-C has been planned as a single, integrated machine and it is designed exactly for one defined application. That's why it is particularly cost-efficient and has a central touch screen for all functions.

      One operator for all machines

      The block is designed as one unit in which all essential control and function elements are centrally combined. This way, just one operator can easily operate the entire Contiform Bloc BF-C on his own.

      Small footprint

      The Contiform Bloc BF-C requires up to 30 percent less space than conventional block variants.

      Energy savings

      From the servo drives to the electromagnetic and compressed-air free stretching systems: The topic energy efficiency goes all the way through the block just like a red thread. Particularly ambitious savings targets can also be achieved with the air recycling system, which is part of the energy-saving package.

      Cost-efficient customisation

      The pre-defined option packages enable to adapt the block to special requirements and keep the costs for the commissioning time low at the same time.
