Netstal has expanded its product range with the introduction of new PET-LINE 5000 in the US.

Developed mainly for markets with extremely high output, the PET-LINE 5000 is designed for moulds with 96 to 144 cavities.

The PET-LINE’s electrical drive motors are interconnected through an intermediate circuit to allow the braking energy being generated during operation to be used elsewhere.

This will, in turn, reduce the power requirement by approximately 10% when compared with the preceding model.

The machine also offers first-rate changes in the areas of energy consumption, control technology and machine control, such as an energy-efficient adaptive drive unit.

In place of constant pump pressure, the equipment adapts to individual application and cycle requirements.

"High-output levels are especially needed in these large beverage markets."

Netstal has also reduced the lock-to-lock time of the machine by around half a second, which can mean an increased output performance of thousands of units a day for applications with cycle times of less than 10s.

This is achieved by using digital controllers, which help in reducing reaction times and increasing oil displacement to make the movement of the mould swifter, the company claims.

The PET-LINE 5000 also features a custom-developed robot that can move into the mould without it being open completely.

Netstal PET business unit sales manager Reto Bamert said that the company’s target markets are generally located outside of Europe, in particular in the US and Asia.

Bamert said: "High-output levels are especially needed in these large beverage markets. Our customers there are generally large bottling plants that require a calculable number of bottle variations, but in such vast quantities that using a 144-cavity preform mould is justified.

"In these regions, our systems are horizontally integrated into the production process. We see, for example, our product lining up directly alongside a blow-moulding machine."
