The Split Mold Balloon Forming Machine (BFMS-500- S2) has full servo control on the proximal and distal axis. This allows for precise and fast stretching of the parisons during the balloon-blowing process. The axis has force control and individual loadcell systems allowing forces to be monitored and used as control parameters during the process. Our BFMS allows you quickly exchange the heat/cool block for a different size/shape balloon.
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.
- Optional High-Pressure system integrated eliminating the need for a high-pressure factory network or the use of N2-bottles.
- Large 19” full color touch screen user interface for easy overview of the machine behaviour.
- Standalone Flexible Process Interface software package available for off-line development of processes.
