    High-performance blow moulder Contiform Heatset

      The all-rounder in the latest generation of high-performance blow moulders

      The multi-talented moulder for different process types

      Its variance remains the absolute benchmark. All process types in one line! It also outperforms everything that came before it in terms of energy consumption. The new generation of the Contiform Heatset is here! It uses the market-proven technology of its predecessor - but only as a basis. For be it flexibility, hygiene, user-friendliness or digitalisation: In the course of a complex development project, the blow moulder has been given a whole series of new features and optimisations.

      Preform/container inspection unit*
      Infrared heating module
      Preform interior cleaning system*
      Preform feed system
      * Options

      Basic machine

      • Linear infrared heating module for processing preforms with a length of up to 160 mm and a support ledge diameter of up to 48,5 mm
      • Blowing module with blowing stations for manufacturing containers of up to 3.5 litres

      Optional modules

      • Prejet preform interior cleaning system for pre-cleaning the incoming preforms
      • PET-View inspection system for the integrated quality control of preforms and containers


      The Contifeed preform feed system

      Focussed on performance right from the beginning

      At a glance

      • Applicable with lightweight, standard and heavy preforms
      • Three models – suitable for the respective blow moulder output
      • Two variants of the feed rail:
        • Gravity system for all common preform types
        • Air-assisted – ideal for lightweight preforms and high-speed applications
      • Optional:
        • Automatic adjustment for quick change-over
        • Hygienic design
        • Soft-tilting preform tipper for a particularly gentle preform infeed

      Benefits to you

      • Automatic troubleshooting
      • Quick and infinitely variable adjustment to every preform type

      Infrared heating technology

      Efficient and flexible

      Heating tunnel

      • Very small oven chain (36.4 mm or 50 mm)
      • Additional reduction of the heating room
      • Adjustable base reflectors: adjustable to the respective preform length
      • Maintenance-free system of ceramic reflectors


      • Parabolic reflector for the top infrared emitter
      • Longer infrared emitters and smaller dead spaces between the heaters

      Benefits to you

      • Up to 15 percent smaller footprint thanks to reduced deadspaces
      • Improved lightweighting potential through targeted heating of the preforms directly below the support ledge
      • Up to 11 percent lower heating energy consumption due to shorter distances and parabolic emitter technology
      Infrared heating technology

      The Contiform blowing module

      Robust and precise

      Transfer system

      • Five-point heating mandrel in the linear oven
      • Only four internal horizontal preform and container transfer points
      • Actively controlled transfer grippers

      Platform and drive technology

      • Torsion-resistant platform construction with skip-and-run technology
      • Five high-precision Monotec servo motors with real-time synchronisation

      Benefits to you

      • Precise transfer of preforms and bottles
      • Perfectly suited for very light preforms
      • No PET dust deposit
      • No change of handling parts if the neck finish remains the same
      • Significantly reduced scrap rate thanks to skip-and-run technology
      • Simultaneous change-over of heating module and blowing module possible

      The blowing stations

      Intelligent while saving on compressed air

      Blowing stations

      • Electromagnetic stretching system without air consumption
      • Extremely low dead space volume in the entire blowing station

      Compressed-air recycling

      • Further developed, two-stage Air Wizard Plus compressed-air recycling system for the internal reuse of the compressed air

      Benefits to you

      • More flexible use of the process time through optimised compressed-air recovery
      • Considerably lower valve switching time dispersion
