Plastic defines our daily life. It is low-weight, cost-effective and can be made into every conceivable shape. These days, everything is made of plastic: bellows and washer tanks in cars, water tanks in washing machines, medical infusion containers and flushing bottles or blow moulded plastic packaging such as bottles, canisters and tanks, the list is endless. These blow moulded plastic containers are produced on blow moulding machines. One manufacturer of such machines is the family-run company, MBK Maschinenbau Koetke GmbH, in Lower Saxony, Germany. Since 1987, the 30 employees of MBK have been developing and manufacturing blow moulding machines and extruders for processing plastics into technical products and packaging goods. Key features of the MBK machines are excellent accessibility to all machine elements and the extra-wide design of the traverse and opening strokes, which enables the manufacture of even twisted and multi-axial products. They allow flexible use and are suitable for both sequential co-extrusion and suction blowing procedures. The blow moulding machines are particularly versatile and can be re-tooled quickly and easily.
Considering the huge quantities of PET bottles that are manufactured, a 3% reduction in material used represents an enormous saving. If, at the same time, precision is improved and setup time reduced, then it can be fairly described as a new dimension in PET bottle production.
