Maer successfully presents its renewed SB3 range at the K Exhibition

The International Fair of Plastics and Rubber in Düsseldorf K 2013 was chosen by MAER to present its new range of spin trimmers with the display of its compact SB3 SERIES (formerly known as TC-4) designed for manufacturing small plastic bottle blow moulding single serve yogurt drink.

Innovation is vital to improve the competitiveness of the industry and that is why the TC-4 range has undergone a complete “re-styling” after going through an exhaustive design process. Renamed as SB3 SERIES, this range of neck trimmers is particularly useful for the production of plastic bottles made by extrusion blow moulding for food use (specially for milk and derivative products), either for its in-line use with the extrusion blow moulding machine or integrated into the same filling line before the bottle filler, with production capacities that go from 2,000 up to 8,000 bottles per hour.

The principal change made has been the minimisation of the structure or main chassis of the device, with a cubic or cabin-type shape, which gives it a much more aesthetic design.

Apart from the aesthetic factor, this restyling of the structure in cabin form also has the following advantages:

- It significantly reduces the size or “footprint” of the machine in comparison with the previous TC-4 an important feature in the present-day industrial scenario where smaller size and compactness is very important.

-  Greater accessibility from either side of the machine to the interior of the cabin where the moving parts are situated, along with a greater degree of control and visual inspection of the bottles throughout their route, thanks to the new fully-open design of the cabin.

- Improved ergonomics when changing formats, making adjustments or replacing the cutting blade.

A necessary modernization, which exemplifies the importance of the commitment made by MAER in R & D to consolidate itself in the international market.
