The Balloon Forming Machine (BFM-500-S2) is the second in a range of balloon-forming machines that is being developed by MPT Europe BV and has full servo control on the proximal and distal axis. This allows for precise and fast stretching of the parisons during the balloon-forming process. The axis have force control and individual loadcell systems allowing forces to be monitored and used as control parameters during the process.
Available Options: Integrated High-Pressure Generation • Active Pressure Drop Control (APDC) • Parison Pre-Heating
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 touch screen user interface for easy overview of the machine behavior.
Standalone Flexible Process Interface software package available for off-line development of processes.
