regional market reports 10 petplanet insider vol. 12 no. 09/11 www.petpla.net finland finland comes aboard in 2008, following the abolition of a tax on disposable bottles, finland witnessed the start of the triumphal advance of the pet disposable bottle. in part 1 we described the changes that went hand in hand with this, based on the particular type of bever-age. what is remarkable about finland is the fact that, following the change in the law, all the bottlers bought themselves new filling lines at practically the same time. and, even though the basic parameters were similar for all of them, each of the bottlers arrived at a different layout. all the bottlers need to achieve the bulk of their business within a season lasting just 3 months and at the same time produce up to 100 different products on the same equip-ment. you can read for yourself how the individual bottlers have risen to the chal-lenge. the reports are about olvi, finn spring, hartwall and sinebrychoff. by alexander büchler part 2 olvi mr. pentti pelttari, technical director head brewer small is beautiful in finland of the three big breweries in finland olvi is the only one that is not owned by a multinational brand. olvi has been brewing beer in iisalmi since 1878 and since 1906 their bottling activities have also included soft drinks. (cans and) pet bottles are used exclusively as containers for soft drinks. in total there are four plants bottling 137 million litres of beer and other beverages in pet, glass and cans (2010 data). until 2008, pet, for olvi, was synonymous with recy-clable containers. however, since that time there has been a shift to disposable. to achieve this, olvi purchased a new disposable installation from khs with a capacity of 18,000bph. ”we envisaged the changeover as an on-going, seamless process” said mr. pentti pelttari, the techni-cal director and head brewer, however, the market took a different view. virtually overnight the bottom fell out of the market for pet recyclable containers. it was not long before the pet recyclables plant had outlived its useful-ness. it was a plant for glass and pet, with bottle handling at ground level. the finns dismantled it and rebuilt it as a glass plant at their subsidiary lidskoe pivo in lida (bela-rus) where it is in building. the finns ordered not one, but reg i ona l mar ke t repor t s finland part 2

regional market reports 11 petplanet insider vol. 12 no. 09/11 www.petpla.net two new pet installations direct. one was for the parent plant whilst the other was an additional installation for a le coq (see baltikum report in forthcoming issues). the machine configuration was nearly the same; it was only the plant layout that had to be adapted to suit individual local circumstances. “the fact that we had two installations at our disposal for order processing meant that we were in a good negotiating position with our supplier. ultimately, the reason why khs was awarded the contract was because they succeeded in offering the right combination of quality and price.“ on the dry stretch, the displays come from the left and the bottles from the right the plant consists of a stretch blow-moulding line from corpoplast with ten moulds and a filler which, in addition to water and drinks, can also be preloaded with co 2 for bot-tling beer. pentti has dispensed with a rinser. in 2008 there was still no question of a block installation as far as he was concerned because, at that time, the large-scale link up of blow moulding plant and fillers using star-shaped transfer mechanisms was still in its infancy worldwide. in finland there is a need to focus on the dry component. this calls for a high level of automation because some very differ-ent types of packaging are used. a particular feature is the display – an injection moulded recyclable tray – which is loaded up along with the bottles, in addition to the classic stacks of shrink-wrapped sixpacks. the plant has a very wide range of filling volumes to process, starting at 0.45 and encompassing such exotic dimensions as 0.95 up to 2l. under the finnish deposits system the deposit on the pet bottle is twice as high if the volume is one or more litres; this is why it is possible, in this land of the lakes, to purchase 0.95l containers. nevertheless, the bulk of sales is concentrated on the 1.5 and the 0.5l bottles. but to return to the displays. displays are also avail-able for recyclable glass bottles and cans. this means that one robot is able to handle any type of container. at olvi they have taken this to the extreme, which means, with the exception of the hgv, practically the entire in-house trans-port system is associated with the pet installation, the 2nd can line and one glass recyclables line. all the installations are sourced from either krones or khs. due to the fact that cans are increasingly in demand with the finns, the glass line is becoming less and less used. the reaction as far as the pet bottle is concerned is stable. in total olvi is bot-tling 30 million pet bottles in iisalmi per year. the products include water, soft drinks, energy drinks, cider and beer for home consumption (a 2.2% malt beer). up to 18,000bph are delivered to the pet disposables line by a blomax 10 nevertheless, the main business is beer. there is a small but exclusive museum on site which deals with beer brewing and bottling. at the entrance there is a hop garden featuring around 100 plants. at a latitude of 63 degrees and 33.2 min-utes north, this has to be the most northerly hop cultivation site in the world. only 3km further south there is the second most northerly hop plantation in the world, where pentti tends 40 hop plants in his own garden. www.olvi.fi finn spring hannu ali-haapala president and ceo member of the board; juha-jaakko niemelä, production director from farm to filler plant it all began almost as a hobby around 20 years ago when farmer hannu ali-haapala took a telephone call from his sister in london: “hannu, the water you use for washing your laundry at home in sykäräinen is a thousand times better than the water we have to drink here in london“. hannu’s response was to begin bottling water from the spring on his own farm. the first big order came from russia at a time when that market was just being opened up. “there were just two faxes and business was up and running, no marketing “, hannu mused, looking back on how things were at that time. since then, he has given up farm-ing – now there are two plants bottling 50 million litres of water and soft drinks in pet bottles each year. f.l.t.r.: juha-jaakko niemelä, hannu ali-haapala and alexan-der büchler for the sipa plant most of it goes into the proprietary brand “spring“, but hannu is also a co-packer for a large number of external brands.

regional market reports 12 petplanet insider vol. 12 no. 09/11 www.petpla.net along with his pro-duction director juha jaakko niemelä and the whole team, hannu is responsible for han-dling production. with the changeover from pet returnable to pet non-returnable bottles, a new sipa plant with eight moulds has found its way on to the site. the 60-valve bottler is from proco-mac. this line produces up to 14,000bph. the old bottling plant for pet returnables (ams ferrari) has been mothballed; the switch to pet non-returnable bottles made the bottom section handling arrangement completely impractical. in the neighbouring bay a second line is currently emerg-ing from the usable parts of the old plant, as well as a few other components. this line is expected to produce some 12,000bph. at present the plant is still being fed by an old tetra stretch blow moulder with a capacity of only 6,000bph. as soon as the limit of capacity is reached the intention is to add a new stretch blow moulding machine to increase line capacity. so now both factories together can reach now 27,000bph with filling four lines and in the future 33,000bph. “we planned everything ourselves and we also do our own structural work, this is the only way we can be sure of knowing exactly what makes the installations tick and this enables us to do a great deal of work on the installations ourselves. hannu is very clear about this: “if we wait around until an external engineer finally finds his way here, our short season may well be over” he says. fortunately there were no such route-finding problems for petplanet! beverages are always bottled in 0.5l and 1.5l bottles only. their own brand water also comes in light blue; the co-brands are available only in clear bottles. “increasingly we are finding ourselves developing beverages for our customers. whereas aromas used to come in from outside ready to use, the market has speeded up to such an extent that we actually undertake adjustments to the taste here on site.” to date hannu has been producing almost exclusively for the finnish market. a year ago, however, the company opened a field station in sweden. the finns are looking at this as a distribution point for a proportion of their products in the near future. www.finnspring.fi hartwall marko rajaniemi, technical manager high speed and flexibility in 2001 hartwallrelocated their entire production to lahti,situated about an hour to the north of helsinki. the large new factory buildings are now home to bottling plants for pet reusable glass, kegs and cans. as is the case everywhere in finland, the reusable proportion is falling rapidly, and non-returnable cans and non-returnable pet are benefiting. the pet installations are based on sipa stretch blow moulding installations featuring 24 moulds and a capacity of 1,800bph which load the krones bottling plants via a rapid-delivery buffer conveyor in just a few minutes. the bottles are first of all rinsed at these filling stations before being filled. the filler plant is also capable of bottling beer, but there is as yet no call for this on the finnish market. “the decision in favour of the sipa plants was based on the need for very high output at the same time as high flexibility“ explained marko rajaniemi, technical manager. first the rinser, then the filler: the krones line at hartwall in total the company fills all types of casks with 3.2 million hectolitres of beer and soft drinks. the sizes of the pet bottles are, as is usual in finland, 0.33, 0.5, 1.5 and 2.0l. around one third of the soft drinks enters the market under licence to pepsi: the remaining 2/3rds are own brands. as is the case throughout finland, the bottles tend to be heavy: the 0.5l bottle weighs 26g, but they are currently in the process of converting to 24g. “up to now, finnish customers had always been used to refillable pet bottles; now they want to drink out of robust non-returna-ble bottles”, says rajaniemi. hartwall, as a 100%-owned subsidiary of heineken, is able to fall back on its parent company’s contracts when buying in materials. the sipa stretch blow moulder in the background, front left marko rajaniemi and alexander büchler www.hartwall.fi sinebrychoff michael slotte, project manager “for us, change is a challenge” sinebychoff prefers to use the last five letters of its name as an abbreviation, so it is also known as “koff”. like the other two big breweries, the brewery produces the entire range of water and soft drinks in addition to beer. it also operated under licence from coca cola. however, some of its soft drinks are actually marketed under own-brand labels. in 2008/2009 the company also invested in 2 plants for new non-returnable pet products. sidel with 20 moulds was chosen for the stretch blow moulder. as a high

preform production 20 petplanet insider vol. 12 no. 09/11 www.petpla.net mht’s upgrade sets offer outputs one-third higher – on existing machines more bang for your buck* productivity, sustainability and conservation of resources are key issues in the production of pet bottles, so who would say no to the equivalent of getting 33% more mileage from a tank of petrol in their current car? mht mold & hotrunner technology ag (germany) says that its upgrade sets enable preform manufacturers using husky hypet 300 or 400 injec-tion moulding machines to produce one-third more preforms from their existing equipment. turer in south america. the (approxi-mately) 85mm long, 15g preform with a pco 1881 thread is created in a cycle time of 9.0s. the control unit of the husky hypet 300 is designed for a maxi-mum of 72 cavities and the upgrade adapts to it, so the injection mould-ing machine can continue to operate the mould. there are two options for nozzle control. nozzles of the same thermal type are either combined, so that the machine still has a total of 72 regular positions, or an external device can assume control of all 96 nozzles. the upgrade set for hypet 400 works in a similar manner. the second option offers customers the opportunity of running the machine in so-called single-nozzle regular opera-tion, which means that the mould is equipped with nozzle thermal sensors. in operation, temperature is constantly monitored and regulated at each indi-vidual cavity. when preforms are produced, they need to be post-cooled in order to be dimensionally stable for further handling as bulk material. for this pur-pose, mht has developed mhtcool-max, a three-stage-post-mould cool-ing solution. an international patent has been applied for. mht has developed upgrade sets that take 72-cavity machines to 96, and 96 to 128. the company says that the sets improve effectiveness, have higher cooling and energy efficiency and enable companies to get higher output from existing machines, eco-nomically and ecologically. it does this by moving the cavities slightly closer together and adding additional rows to the left and right. the mht team has achieved higher cavitation without making the moulds much wider. the stacks, i.e. the moulds in which the preforms are created, are identical to those of the long-established 72-cavity mould technology. this space saving does not require or imply a ‘filigree’ mode of construction, which may be more susceptible to faults. a pilot project is currently running successfully with a leading preform and bottle manufac-mht has achieved higher cavitation without making the moulds much wider. cooling pins *based on an article by sabine kob, mht

preform production 21 petplanet insider vol. 12 no. 09/11 www.petpla.net the key innovation in the mht-coolmax is in the detail of the cooling plate, from which cooling pins pro-trude. it is water-cooled; air that flows through into the preforms therefore arrives significantly cooler than from uncooled plates. in the inner space of the preforms, this solution differs from other offers by its reversed coolant flow. the air initially brushes past on the preform wall toward the front and then arrives back through the inside of the cooling pins; this increases the cooling effect on the preform. in addition, the flow of coolant is divided directly after penetrating the preform and part of the air is directed to the inner space of the thread. the upgrade set is available for preforms up to a maximum water thread diameter of 30/25. mht assumes the complete project management of the prototype pro-duction through to ramp-up to series production and guarantees a smooth-running changeover to the new number of cavities. the upgrade set is offered within the context of a mould exchange or conversion, such as to a different preform design or weight. after installation by an mht service engineer, the company says that it becomes a simple matter of ‘plug & play’ for the preform producer – but with output one-third higher than before. note: husky and hypet are reg-istered trademarks of husky injection molding systems, ltd., with its head-quarters in bolton / canada. mht mold & hotrunner technology ag has no connection to husky. www.mht-ag.com take-out plate petplanet insider vol. 12 no. 09/11 www.petpla.net

(two-stage machines only) 10. check hardware for worn, dam-aged or failed components, spe-cifcally the machine and mould heaters, and a misaligned shut-off nozzle. 11. for prevention, always: a.reduce temperatures by about 40ºc (104ºf) if the machine stops for more than 15min b.reduce %-controllers by if the machine stops for more than 15min c. shut off nozzle tip heats if the machine stops for more than 10min d.never exceed start up tempera-ture soak times. machine should be started within 15min of the temperatures reaching operat-ing settings. nozzle tips should only be turned on 5 to 7min prior to start up. e. always reduce the dryer tempera-ture to about 120c if stopped for more than 30min and 80ºc (176ºf) if stopped for more than 2h. www.petpla.net table of contents i........................ about the authors ii.................................introduction chapter 1.............................. aa level high 2........................ accordion preform 3....................... air hooks / streaks 4............................... black specks 5...................................... bubbles 6..................................burn marks 7...........................colour streaking ................................... /peeling 8..................................crystallinity 9.................................drool marks 10.......................................... flash 11......................... gate depressions 12............................... gate peeling 13..................gate voids / pin holes 14......................... internal gate sink 15................................internal sinks 16........................................ iv loss 17............................ long gate nub 18...............................milky preform 19............................ moisture marks 20................neck finish out of round 21....................... parting line crease 22.................parting line deformation 23......................... preform yellowing 24.................................. short shots 25.......................................... sinks 26......................................... splay 27........................... stretched necks 28..................................... stringing 29......................... surface blemishes 30......................... thread flow lines 31...............tss (top sealing surface) ......................................... sink 32.......................................unmelts 33.................wall thickness variation 34.................................wavy body 35.................................. weld lines eisbär material drying producer model low energy consumption low energy consumption lowest energy consumption on the market rating aaa energy a eisbär b c d e f g all the others a www.eisbaer.at wuhrmühle 22 / a-6840 götzis t 43 5523 55558-0 / cool@eisbaer.at

(nissei asb’s two step machinery is not part of this presentation about single stage.) strategic aims for implemen-tation asked about the strategic aims for implementation over the nexed three years, karel keersmaekers responds by quoting the corporate slogan “bal-ance and surprise”. this means for nissei asb short term planning for the future: increase in production capacity in the indian factory. second factory next to the first factory in mumbai. double output in india to be mar-keted and sold. focus on moulds, which today already accounts for 23% of sales. the target is to double production capacity in india of moulds in three years, i.e. in total 1,200 moulds produced per annum for injection and blowing. introduction of new machines into the market, firstly the asb-150dpw with double row configuration suit-able for high volume production for cosmetics and food. as we see a trend from glass to pet especially in the wide mouth formats. development of a new generation of pf, which is a 1.5 step machine, also with a higher output, i.e. 9,000 bph in a single stage. to be launched on the market in 2012. to extend range into higher output. new potential market places: “we want to be more active in south america, also in west africa (countries representing logistic challenges)”. new office in nige-ria. reinforcement of staff in sao paolo/brazil. (in this present issue we are not covering nissei asb’s developments and targets in the two step arena.) challenges we asked karel keersmaekers: “you are number one. what are the challenges ahead?” and keersmaek-ers answered for nissei asb: “we are number one in single stage, because we have learned to win the market rather than try to beat the competition. we have opened ourselves. we are looking forward. this strategy will be continued. there is room for growth in the single stage market by seeking more applica-tions. but we have also noticed a certain amount of overlapping from single stage to two stage. there are huge numbers of small two stage manufacturers mainly in the far east, whom we are keeping an eye on, who make two cavity, four cavity mould-ing machines, linear blow moulding machines, that are gaining little by little market share. that is why we develop a new generation of 1.5 stage machines, to counteract the two step-per into our single stage markets. our response is to offer higher outputs like 10,000bph with versatile features for neck size and bottle capacity, combined with cost effectiveness. to remain on top, we must take care and progress continually.” www.nisseiasb.co.jp

capping / closures 44 petplanet insider vol. 12 no. 09/11 www.petpla.net improved injection moulding machine design helps to reduce energy consumption and improve efficiency in closure manufacturing cutting closure production costs there is constant pressure to lower the production costs of mass-produced goods, such as beverage closures. improved machine design, including energy-recovery sys-tems, work with lighter weight and developing design to reduce the costs of closure systems production. developments of the pco 1881 closure design, launched in 2008, have continually reduced its weight. at launch, it weighed 2.45 g; it is now 2.3g when used for csd and up to 1.8g for still water. the weight reduc-tion has led to raw material savings of several thousand tons each year. machine manufacturers can also con-tribute, through technical advances in the performance of the injection unit, clamping unit and main drive. plasticising performance in the injection unit is a significant factor and netstal is now furnishing its elion and evos series with the established barrier screw and new 1000, 2000 and 2900 unit sizes. the combina-tion of high-performance screws and high-torque screw drives enables netstal machines to dispense high shot weights in a very short time and with good melt quality. the pe-hd types used as standard with an mfi (melt flow index) of less than two can also be processed in the same way, as shown in newly-emerging bimodal and multimodal grades. netstal has revised its injection piston sizes, in order to achieve the same injection performance with lower oil volumes; reduced oil consumption has a direct impact on drive size and, therefore, energy consumption. the revised performance of the evos/elion injec-tion moulding units allows the 2000m hybrid unit to be used, instead of the hydraulic 2150 unit. in the case of the clamping unit, the first step is selection of the right drive technology. in a hydraulic evos clamping unit, for example, optimised internal clamping cylinders and toggle lever geometry, combined with high-performance hydraulic valves, help to save energy. the fully-electric elion recovers accumulated braking energy – produced from closing the clamp-ing unit, for example – and uses it to power an additional electric axle. netstal’s 5-point toggle lever can cope with the fastest mould movements without any need for spindle drives, which are prone to wear and tear. net-stal’s spindle-free clamping unit has virtually no self-locking, so practically all braking-phase kinetic energy can be recovered. this technology has been in use since elion was launched in 2004, years before the emergence of formula 1’s kers (kinetic energy recovery systems).

capping / closures 45 petplanet insider vol. 12 no. 09/11 www.petpla.net with these optimisations and improvements, energy con-sumption in the netstal range (based on the production of a pco 1881 closure weighing 2.3g) can be compared as fol-lows: compared with the syn-ergy range there is a saving of up to 13% with the evos range and up to 40% with the elion range, following identical pro-cess parameters (see table) continuing reduction of clo-sure weight leads to increased output and an improvement in economic efficiency. the turning point became clear in 2009/10, when output could be signifi-cantly increased due to a sub-stantial reduction in cycle time (see graph). competitive advantages for closure manufacturers in this highly cost-intensive applica-tion are significant. as well as higher output per m, lower electricity consumption is a core feature of economically efficient manufacturing. the lower costs of closure manufacture that can be achieved with the measures described above, together with further improvements in closure design, mould and automation performance, are becoming apparent in series production. specialists from netstal’s cap business unit are in the very early phases of evaluat-ing customer requirements and needs and implementing them in complete, ready-to-use produc-tion lines. www.netstal.com (data in kwh) synergy evos elion main drive(s) 78 56.3 25 screw drive 23.5 25 25 heaters machine and mould 24 27 27 total 125.5 108.3 77 sleevematic es – the sensa-tionally saving-savvy system for super-elastic sleeves. www.krones.com pack expo 2011 las vegas, 26 – 28 sep. south hall, stand 1800 table: comparison of energy consumption of synergy, evos and elion graph: output and cycle time 72-cavity pco 1881
