    Contiform Bloc block of stretch blow moulder and further machines

      Sustainable and efficient production of PET bottles

      Bringing together what belongs together

      Blow moulder and filler in an effective team. And that is the reason why we have perfected the popular combination of both machines even further in a single block. With a seamless drive concept, finely tuned transfer interfaces for every production program and precisely operating processes in stop situations, you can count on getting the very best out of your PET bottle line.

      Your benefits as compared to a conventional line layout

      Efficient production on minimum space

      The Contiform Bloc requires up to 30 % less space than a blow moulder and filler installed in a conventional single machine arrangement. The compact line layout ensures also less potential malfunction sources within the line.

      Sustainable block concept

      The direct combination of individual machines into a block pays off twice: An air conveyor system for the blow-moulded containers, a bottle rinser or conveyor sections are no longer required, which, in turn, results in a reduced consumption of water, compressed air and energy in the complete line.

      High hygienic standard

      Having only a few interfaces and conveyor sections are key factors in achieving a high degree of cleanliness for the bottle material. The direct transfer of the bottles from the stretch blow moulder to the filler and capper prevents dirt being brought in.

      Low operator requirement

      The Contiform Bloc offers a good overview, short paths and a standardised operating concept. It also requires little change-over work and has an optimised maintenance program thanks to the use of servo technology.

      Efficient and flexible line concept

      With the Contiform Bloc, you are optimally prepared for bottle or product change-overs. It allows both, line change-over and restart in a quick and reproducible way.
