Great parison stability at high speeds. Very well-suited for light weight containers including a handle, typical in dairy product applications.
For the manufacture of small containers (up to 350 ml), the NtN configuration (2 cavities per mould) allows for doubling production capacity
Ideal for multi-layer containers.
Maximum mould number: 30 (48 with Neck to Neck configuration).
Blown necks (needle blower).
Output: up to 18,000 b/h in single-cavity moulds; 24,000 b/h in 2 cavity moulds.
Comprehensive control system, including parison thickness regulator, with an interface for visualizing process parameters and statistical production control
Integrated deflashing units, either dome trimmer or combination of impact trimmer, dome trimming systems and neck machining.
Container transfer system to integrated deflashing unit.
An advanced extrusion concept with a strong increase in plastification, and notable reduction in energy consumption
High degree of sensorization that allows an integrated control of the operation.
Having a single head, regardless of the number of moulds, provides maximum uniformity in the containers, leaving their weight within a very narrow range. This allows reducing the average container weight.
A reduced quantity of energy is required to maintain the wheel in rotation and to ensure the final clamping of the moulds. The single head also helps minimize energy consumption, reducing the number of heaters and heads to a minimum.
The parison is always held between two adjacent moulds, allowing for high extrusion speeds even for lightweight containers, assuring total uniformity.
Because the PEAD blow moulding machine is the basis of a bottle manufacturing line, it is necessary to have access to auxiliary equipment that may be optionally supplied as part of a turnkey project.
Urola supplies these and ensures their installation through a turnkey concept, taking responsibility for the operation of the line.
Having only one head, regardless of the number of moulds, makes Urola’s rotary machines ideal for multi-layer containers requiring multi-layer heads.
With the “Neck to Neck” concept, that is, two cavities per mould, it is possible to duplicate production capacity for small bottles with minimal additional investment.
Mainly they are used for small containers of dairy products or a “single serve”.
Our service begins with a customer consultation regarding container design, taking the following factors into consideration::
We use 5 axis CNC Machining Centers and other auxiliary machines for the manufacture of moulds with the highest quality.
This service is covered by Urola when it is required to determine the validity of the container when it is a new packaging development.
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.
