Röders – hall 7A booth 301
Reducing energy consumption is a huge topic for the beverage industry and mould manufacturer Röders has introduced a new base technology for reducing blowing pressure: The “low pressure” (LP) base is combining a unique design with extra venting to let the air exhaust easily. Due to the optimised material flow, less air will be required to blow out all areas of the base.
Blowing bottles with less than 20 bars instead of 30 was feasible at several CSD bottlers in Europe and some were able to even reduce to 15 bars. All potential results are related to local conditions such as the preform, condition of the machine and moulds as well as the bottle shape itself, Röders said.
With its 50 years of experience, Röders attributes its success to the use of modern technology, especially the high-speed cutting machines developed in-house. The company sees high flexibility, fast response times and consistent quality of all moulds produced as its core competencies.
