Extrusion blow moulding

Urola’s rotary extrusion blow moulding systems for the manufacturing of HDPE, PP containers, etc. are considered to be the most efficient machines available for obtaining high quality and uniform containers at a minimum cost.

These systems may be used to manufacture a wide variety of container types, including food and non-food bottles, with dairy products being the most frequently manufactured.

The M series of the UROLA extrusion blow moulding machines for HDPE containers includes a wide variety of models of up to 12 stations and up to 2 litres, mono or multi-layer, to respond to the different productivity needs of up to 11,000 bottles/hour. It is characterized by a radial mould positioning in the rotary plates, offering great flexibility for combining containers off different sizes.

Extrusion blow moulding MSC SERIES

Extrusion blow moulding MSC SERIES

A unique extrusion blow moulding system in the market that allows for the manufacturing of plastic containers with calibrated necks of up to 10 litres with a handel in a continuous movement rotating wheel, with the moulds being situated in a radial position.

Ideal for lubricating oil applications, chemical products, home care product containers, etc.

Total ownership cost

The rotary concept allows for minimization of the impact of different cost factors when manufacturing bottles or containers.

When considering the cost of these factors for containers produced by Urola’s extrusion blow moulding system, the resulting final total cost is lower than the costs incurred when using other systems or technologies, in particular, those incurred from linear “shuttle” type moulding systems.

For instance, the manufacturing of a 1 litre HDPE bottle, single-layer, 32gr, with a production capacity of 28 million, manufactured with the Urola mod. M-12 would offer the following comparative data. The percentages represent the cost reductions obtained from using the Urola equipment as compared to equivalent “shuttle”-type linear machines.

  • 5% Raw materials Highly consistent and uniform weight
  • 30% Energy Minimal Wheel operating power
  • 10% Personnel Minimal personnel attention
  • 47% Depreciation Lower investment and extended durability
  • 20% Financial cost Lower spending
  • 35% Maintenance Mechanical systems
  • 30% Floor space Compact systems

All of this translates to annual savings of some 200,000€ depending on the cost of each factor.
