KLS Long-stroke Machines
Available from Kautex Machines
The KLS series long-stroke blow molding machines are the result of a customer and market driven continuous development of tried and tested long-stroke machines that have proven their reliability and efficiency since 1991.
The machines are used for demanding packaging applications such as bottles and canisters with handle and/or angled neck, in multilayer or coex configuration or with view stripe, as well as for industrial products.
The KLS series includes the flexible models KLS 6-100, 8-100, 10-100, 12-100 and 14-100. (The KLS 14-100, for instance, is designed for a 14-cavity production of bottles with 100 mm center distance.)
With the additional models KLS 30 and 60, Kautex Maschinenbau offers dedicated canister machines (a KLS 30D would be capable of producing stackable 20, 25 and 30 liter canisters 2-fold in each of its two clamps). All KLS models are available as single and double clamp machines.
The low-profile clamping units shuttle perpendicular to the extruder axis on linear bearings providing critical support below each clamp platen. KLS series machines have a small footprint due to the integration of the hydraulic system ane electrical cabinet into the machine frame. They offer flexibility with respect to the discharge of blown articles.
Standard set-up mode operation and quick set-up features in conjunction with optional scales for repeatable manual adjustments of machine functions simplify product changeover and start of production.
