Europe: KHS showcases PET processing in Germany

At K 2016 KHS will be exhibiting modules for special packaging formats for the InnoPET Blomax Series IV stretch blow molder.

The Bottles & Shapes program for individual bottle design will also feature at the trade show from October 19 to 26 in Düsseldorf, Germany.

The company will display systems for special stretch blow molding requirements, such as PET packaging with 70 mm necks.

These receptacles are known as wide mouth containers and used for various types of food packaging.

For this purpose KHS has developed a heater box to suit the wide neck preform and thus requires very little heating energy.

In addition, when the containers are changed over, no manual conversion is needed.

The heater box is available for various container formats on the InnoPET Blomax Series IV.

In addition, the company will showcase the Bottles & Shapes program that offers beverage and food producers an all-round service that starts with individual suggestions for possible designs and ends with a bottle that is ready for production.

A resulting product is the 20 g, 1 L PET bottle for milk and mixed milk beverages.

In order to protect the milk against external influences, two types of ultra violet light barrier are used.

Unlike the classic milk carton, this bottle is fully recyclable.
