Customers with Blow Molding machines reduced the preventive maintenances.
The largest manufacturers of PET bottles for the food industry in Mexico and the world are using French origin blow molding machines, this process is by far the most popular in the industry.
Blow molding of PET bottles requires very fast and accurate response times in all its components. There are machines that produce up to 2,000 bottles per hour (bph) per station, and in Mexico we've seen machines up to 28 stations producing the incredible amount of 56,000 bph.
Our products proved to be the best option and exceeded customers' expectations in applications such as stretch molding, nozzle and pilotage of high pressure valves. The value could be reflected in the price, but especially in savings related with fewer failures, scrap and downtimes due the high tolerance to contaminated compressed air and fast response times, quick maintenance associated with a simpler and improved electrical and mechanical design that allows a drop-in replacement of valves and actuators.
These significant improvements were applied in many plants worldwide and due to these new preferences of the user base; the machines' manufacturer had to rewrite their preferences and set MAC and PHD as its new standards.
