Advantages and Specifications

Injection Stretch Blow Moulding
Main Benefits

LINE COSTS
The cost of GF system is lower than the cost of BFS system
 
COSTS FOR BOTTLE PRODUCTION
In manners of raw materials consumption, the cost for producing one 500 ml bottle with the GF system is lower with about 35% than producing it with the BFS system

Container Typical bottle/bag weight
Size 100ml 250 ml 500 ml 1000 ml
Bottle 9 - 11 g 13 - 15,5 g 18 - 19 g 31 - 34 g
Bag 8 - 9 g 11,5 - 12,5 g 15 - 16 g 23 - 25 g


WASTED RAW MATERIALS
With the GF system, the wasted raw material for the production of one 500 ml PP bottle is equal to 0%. It is another point in advantage of GF because of production costs optimization
 
OPTICAL INSPECTION
The bottles produced with the GF system have high levels of transparency, so the customer can obtain high levels of accuracy in case of optical inspection: this means better results and higher accuracy in case of optical inspection for the GF bottles
 
HOURS OF PRODUCTION
GF system is suitable to work in continuous from 8 hours up to 24 hours per day without any problem
 
INTERFACE AND LINE SIMPLICITY
The GF system have a very simple interface and way to manage so there is no need to high qualified operator to supervise on it
 
AFTER BOTTLE FORMING
In the GF system there is a possibility to blow the bottles inside with ionized air to be sure that there is no residual or any plastic particles inside the bottle: better accuracy in product purity and cleanness with the GF system
 
BOTTLES STERILIZATION
The PP bottles formed by GF system it can be sterilized in autoclave at high temperature up to 121°C without losing the form and remaining identical.
**Bottles sterilization (see below more information)**
 
POSSIBLE CLOSURE
With the GF system there are different type of caps which can be applied on the final bottle:
1. Sealed Euro Cap
2. Sealed Irrigation cap
3. Screw cap
4. Stopper and Aluminium Cap

INFINITY BOTTLES DESIGNS
With the GF system the bottle design can be changed and personalized at any time the customer need, it request only a change in the bottle moulds

CHANGE FORMAT
To change the bottle format (ex: from 500 ml to 1000 ml) with the GF system, it takes around 45 min for the complete line

CIP/SIP CYCLE
The estimated time to prepare the filling machine to a CIP/SIP cycle is around 5 min, and additional 25 min to do the cycle, automatically without the need to use any tool by the supervising operator
 
SPEED
The GF system can reach capacities from 500 BpH up to 24000 BpH, depending on the customer request, reaching higher speed than a BFS system.
 
FDE
GF ISBM lines actually on production are already FDA approved. This allows products export worldwide, including USA and Japan.
