BM907D Long Stroke Machine at NPE 2009
Bekum Introduces the BM-907D Long Stroke Machine at NPE 2009
At NPE 2009, Bekum will introduce the BM-907D twin station Long Stroke blow molding machine, the latest and largest member of Bekums proven Long Stroke range.
Bekum America has recently received orders from a major international pharmaceutical company for two (2) BM-907D machines to be supplied for the high output production of medical components.
The selection criteria for the BM-907D was its ability to yield fully automated production of extrusion blow molded proprietary medical articles, inclusive of neck calibration and deflashing, while maintaining high cavitation.
Ideal for high output container production, the new BM-907D Long Stroke machine integrates outstanding technical specifications while maintaining all of the traditional advantages of shuttle machine production, such as:
High clamping forces
Calibrated neck finishes eliminating secondary finishing
Oriented bottle discharge to one side of the machine
Ease of operation and adjustment
Quick mold change system
2 or 3 layer compatibility
Compact machine footprint
Key Technical Specifications:
Maximum mold width: 1380 mm
Mold clamping force: 400 KN (44.8 U.S. tons)
Dry cycle time: 4.5 seconds
Examples of the BM-907Ds production flexibility include:
A 250ml oval HDPE bottle can run 28 cavities on 85 mm centerline distance, yielding a nominal output in excess of 75 million bottles per year.
A 4 liter handled bottle can run 12 cavities on 200 mm centerline distance, yielding a nominal output in excess of 20 million bottles per year.
On the performance, flexibility, and reliability side, the BM-907D offers:
High-speed production and high efficiency
Optimized bottle weight control
Consistency in meeting tight product specifications
