EBS KL HC ERGON stretch-blow moulders

the ideal solution to produce PET and rPET containers up to 10 liters

In terms of size, high-capacity containers, such as 5, 8 and 10 L containers, arouse growing interest, especially in the companies that pay attention to green and cost-saving solutions. By using high-capacity bottles, in fact, fewer containers are required to reach a certain product volume and therefore, logistic, handling and disposal costs are reduced.

SMI has decades of experience in the manufacturing of machines for the production of high-capacity containers, as well as in the design of bottles that meet customers’ functional and aesthetic requirements.

SMI develops innovative containers, such as the stackable “Neck-in-bottles”, that, thanks to a particular design of the hollow of the bottom, offer the advantage of:
optimizing the space of the pallet
reducing the packaging costs: the cardboard interlayer pads are not needed
lower transport and storage costs, thanks to the higher number of bottles on each pallet
reducing the waste: the bottle necks are subject to fewer breakages during the palletizing phase
improving the aesthetic aspect of the pallet, that results more compact and that can be graphically customized.
