Innovation Smart launched its new “DS – Series” of Double Station Extrusion Blow Moulding Machines Capacity 250ml to 5000ml Smart Machineries and Moulds Pvt. Ltd. have come up with the new DS Series Double Station Blow Moulding Machine. The DS Series blow moulding machine has 5 main variants based on the capacity of bottles / cans like 250 ml, 500 ml, 1 Liter, 2 Liters and 5 Liters. Similar to the single station machines, these machines can be used to produce a wide variety of polymers such as HDPE, PP, LDPE etc. At present, the largest capacity of the DS Series is 5 Liters; but they have design ready for 10 Liter capacity machine also. The larger platen area help to accommodate bigger size moulds. The machine is flexible with center distances of 80mm, 90mm, 110mm and 150mm with 2 / 3 / 4 Parison Die-Heads. The DS Series machines with Faster Dry Cycles (capability of 15 Dry Cycles/minute) result in higher outputs. The fully automatic machines are equipped with freely programmable machine controls. The SMART DS-5 and DS-10 Liter machines have proportional hydraulics to get optimum energy consumption. The Highlight of the DS Series machines are Two Station with Larger Platen Area, Freely Programmable Microprocessor Controls, Heavy Duty Helical Gear Box, Superior Quality Mixing Screws, Continuous Single or Multi Parsion Die-Heads, A.C. Drive, Fast Dry Cycle, Power Saver Hydraulics and User Friendly. The new “SMART DS Series” is getting excellent response since it enhances the production capacity by 50 to 60 % as compared to the single station machine and saves energy.

New Melt Blender Generation for Higher Product Quality and Lower Processing Costs in Extrusion With the introduction of the new melt blender generation SMB plus at K 2013 in Düsseldorf Promix Solutions AG sets a new standard for melt homogenization in extrusion. The melt blender equalizes temperature and velocity of the melt over the whole crosssection and perfectly distributes additives. This leads to consistent high product quality, narrow tolerances and might even allow a higher throughput. The new patented melt blender generation persuades through excellent mixing performance, lowest possible pressure drop and a very robust seamless construction. Furthermore, the SMB plus features excellent self-cleaning properties thanks to a flow-optimized design.

The innovation is based on the Sulzer SMXTM plus mixing structure and has been developed further during the last 2 years to

comply with the requirements in extrusion. Key targets for the implementation were improved product characteristics as well as optimized manufacturing methods. The result is a new flow optimized mixer generation. It features highest strength, lowest pressure drop and excellent mixing performance. Prior to its market introduction, the new melt blender has been tested extensively. The SMB plus is available in various sizes and can be delivered as a complete solution including housing and suitable adapters for fast and easy installation into existing extrusion lines.
