Post_Nov2017_HBM_CBF_MachineA leading Chinese Dairy company in the high growth dairy sector has purchased a further two CBF (Compression Blow Forming) systems to produce Aseptic PE bottles.

Following an in-depth analysis comparing extrusion blow moulding, the traditional manufacturing platform for dairy containers, the company who is ranked in the top 10 global dairy companies by size, chose SACMI CBF to produce the container for their pasteurized product.

The benefits of CBF were; reduced cycle time to 7 seconds, a container weight of 15.5 gm compared to 19 gm for traditional EBM (Extrusion Blow Moulding), zero scrap (eliminating the potential for contamination), and lower energy costs.

The customer’s investment decision was determined not just by the anticipated boost in productivity and the lower container weight, but also process repeatability and improvement in container quality, particularly in the neck finish sealing area.

Another benefit compared to traditional EBM manufacture was the elimination of the internal sealing beads (weld lines) which means greater resistance to the elevated temperatures and pressures typical of the pasteurisation processes.


The SACMI Group is represented in Oceania by HBM Plastics Technologies.
