Rotary Benefits

1. MECHANICAL SYSTEM

Minimum Hydraulic Oil utilization for Mould clamping, working at a lower pressure 60/90 bar. Pump power 2/3 KW.

Mould Clamping Force Adjustable according to the container.

Consistency and Repeatability.

System to Raise the Needle Blower for Deep Bases.

2. ENERGY SAVING

At present, the reduction of energy consumption has become one of industry’s priorities.

Urola’s extrusión blowmolding technology is based on a rotary concept, which contributes in a very decisive way to the attainment of these objectives.

This technology allows 30-40% savings in energy consumption in relation to conventional systems.

The explanation is very simple:

  • The moulds are placed in a wheel, where the blow molding action takes place.

    The moulds are opened mechanically by the actor of a cam.

    It is therefore, a mere fact of maintaining the wheel moving, which needs a minimum energy to do so (4-7kw).

  • As they only have one head, the heating energy in relation to other multi-head systems, is also minimized.

  • We also apply the most advanced developments regarding the extrusion equipments used in our machines, which suppose a dramatic reduction of the energy consumption.

  • All of these factors together, allow us to obtain values as low as 250wh/kg, a “record” number in energy consumption of extrusion blowmolding equipment

    3. INDEPENDENT CAVITIES

    Maximum Interchangeability

    Minimum Time for Mould Repair

    Independent Mould Clamping for each cavity, assuring a Perfect Mould Closing.

    4. FLEXIBILITY

    Bottles with blown neck: from 100 ml to 2L (keeping the minimum scrap ratio and no change of head).

    • Neck to Neck Option

    Containers with calibrated neck: from 1L to 10L (keeping the minimum scrap ratio and no change of head).

    Easy for CO-EXTRUSION

    Possibility to Process a wide Range of Materials.

    Minimum mould change time:15 min. per mould.

    MOULDS

    The blow mould plays a fundamental role for the production of bottles, and that is why at Urola we integrate the complete process.

    We advise, design the container and mould, manufacture the mould, manufacture samples and provide the best possible after-sales service.

    ADVICE

    Our service begins with a customer consultation regarding container design, taking the following factors into consideration::

    • The product to be packaged.
    • Aesthetic factors.
    • Suitability for the container manufacturing process.
    • Technical characteristics required of the container.

    CONTAINER AND MOULD DESIGN

    We have the most appropriate means to develop the designs of the container and mould, both highly qualified technicians and the most powerful computer tools.

    MOULD MANUFACTURING

    We use 5 axis CNC Machining Centers and other auxiliary machines for the manufacture of moulds with the highest quality.

    SAMPLE MANUFACTURING

    This service is covered by Urola when it is required to determine the validity of the container when it is a new packaging development.

    AFTER SALES SERVICE AND PREVENTIVE MAINTENANCE

    We accompany the customer in the maintenance of the moulds during their useful life to ensure that the conditions of the process are maintained in optimal conditions.

    For this we replace worn parts, repairs, check air outlets, check cooling circuits, etc.

    A cooling system is integrated within the very mould. Moulds are manufactured in duralumin with stainless steel, treated neck adjustments.

    We do even more!

    Urola Solutions develops advanced solutions for the packaging manufacture with blow moulding technology, providing added value to end users.
