Split Mold Balloon Forming Machine - BFMS-500-S2

Rapid Heat Cool Split Mold

Now with Rapid Heat Cool Mold Technology

Up to 30% Faster than the Original.

Description

The Split Mold Balloon Forming Machine (BFMS-500- S2) has full servo control on the proximal and distal axis. This allows for precise and fast stretching of the parisons during the balloon-blowing process. The axis has force control and individual loadcell systems allowing forces to be monitored and used as control parameters during the process. Our BFMS allows you quickly exchange the heat/cool block for a different size/shape balloon.

 

Available Options: Integrated High-Pressure Generation • Active Pressure Drop Control (APDC) • Parison Pre-Heating 

Specifications

  • Flexible Process Interface for virtual limitless process cycle options on large 19” full color touch panel interface.
  • Fast and strong full servo-controlled axis for repeatable and reliable stretching of the parison materials during the forming process.
  • Integrated safety light curtain with intuitive user interaction for safe operation.
  • Optional High-Pressure system integrated eliminating the need for a high-pressure factory network or the use of N2-bottles.
  • Standard equipped with a safety light curtain with intuitive operator feedback.
  • Large 19” full-color touchscreen user interface for easy overview of the machine behavior.
  • Standalone Flexible Process Interface software package available for offline development of processes.
  • Parison pre-heating system to reduce cycle times.
  • Quick exchange of mold head (heat/cool block) without the need to manually connect/disconnect water hoses and connectors.
