Electric blow moulder on show in Asia Another blow moulding machine developer Bekum, having presented its new 10 tonne electric EBlow 307 DL model at the K show last year, will now bring to Asia the X07A. The latter is available in two versions: with a traditional hydraulic system and in a fully electric Eblow version.

Bekum will show its new Eblow electric series

The fully electric version is said to render energy savings of up to 50% and reduced dry cycle times for production that is up to 15% faster. Non-impact machine movements extend the working life and afford positioning accuracy within 0.01 mm with quick build-up of the clamping force. At a maximum of 72 dB, the EBlow is a low noise machine. The new design of the clamping system in the X07 allows for a uniform distribution of the clamp force, with a trouble-free pinch-off. The new clamping system can be installed at the bottom calibration and, therefore, allow for both top and bottom calibration. Mould widths in the range of 350-700 mm and a clamp force of 10-24 tonnes are offered.

Meet PRA and its representatives at Chinaplas in Hall 3.1, Booth D01

Under one umbrella with thermoforming and film machines A member of the film stretching firm Br端ckner, Kiefel will present its Speedformer KMD78B automatic pressure forming machine, with 760 x 540 mm forming area, shown demonstrating the processing of an APET tray tool. It has also developed a new stacking concept for tilting machines.
