With the KHS InnoPET Tri-Block the KHS Group has now launched a filling and packaging system for PET bottles to market which incorporates a stretch blow moulder, labeller and filler. With consistent neck handling KHS also enables lightweight PET to be processed. This means that a 0.5 litre bottle weighing notably less than eight grams can now be produced, for instance.

"More and more customers thus want more compact lines", says Frank Haesendonckx, head of Sales and Technology at KHS' factory Hamburg, Germany. He explains that the InnoPET Tri-Block evolved within a short space of time. "We obtained convincing results very quickly during development as we were able to base the new system on our own tried-and-tested technology."

The InnoPET Tri-Block, comprises an InnoPET Blo-Fill stretch blow moulder/filler block plus an additional labelling function. Both still water and carbonated beverages can be bottled on this compact blocked system in the minimum amount of space. The high-performance machines have a maximum output of 81,000 bph.

Beverage producers can also process lightweight PET bottles on the new system, allowing operators to manufacture 0.5 litre bottles weighing e.g. less than eight grams.
