Italy-based Sipa has unveiled a revolutionary stretch-blow system, XTRA, for production of polyethylene terephthalate (PET) bottles at drinktec 2017.

XTRA is capable of producing 2550 bottles per hour per cavity. Such a high figure makes it possible to reduce the number of blow molds for any given total output requirement, accelerating changeover times and lowering investment costs.

The process angle on the new XTRA is 200 degrees – a value that exceeds current market standards by some 15% and facilitates production of high quality bottles even at high speeds. Such a wide process angle makes it possible to apply high pressure air for up to 0.8s, enabling production of containers, even complex ones, with accuracy, according to the company.

XTRA can produce bottles from 0.2-3.5L in volume. It can also accommodate different neck sizes (28/38mm). In addition, the clamp stroke has two settings: short, to produce bottles of up to 1.5L at a maximum speed of 2,550bhc; and long, for containers up to 3L and an output of up to 2,400bhc. This mechanical flexibility is complemented by the ability of the machine to produce hot- and cold-fill containers, without any changes to the system.

The system is designed to be able to integrate and interact with other machines. It can for example be directly connected to a filler to create a standard system for production and filling of PET containers; equally, it can be integrated with SIPA's XTREME rotary injection compression platform for preform production.

Finally, XTRA can interface with XTREME Renew, which produces preforms directly from recycled bottles, creating a system unique in the world – XTREME Renew Sincro.

Thanks to a simpler interface, adjustment of all parameters can be done quickly and safely. In addition, all planned and assisted maintenance activities can be carried out without the use of tools for either quick mold change or neck changing. Its air recovery system and reduced dead air volumes during blowing also helps to reduce energy consumption, and thus operating costs.

 

"With over 30 years of experience, SIPA is the benchmark in technologies for the production, filling and packaging of PET containers," said Paolo De Nardi, SBM product Manager at SIPA." XTRA is the result of our unmatched expertise, constant research, and concentration on process innovation."
