SACMI CBF - COMPRESSION BLOW FORMING
YOUR BEST TECHNOLOGICAL CHOICE FOR PLASTIC CONTAINERS

CBF compression blow forming

State-of-the-art technology

CBF (Compression Blow Forming) is a unique combination of
compression molding and blow-molding. The process begins with
the resin being introduced into a continuously operating extruder.
The extruder provides a constant supply of resin which is cut into
predetermined precise pellets which are inserted into an open
compression mold. The compression cycle provides the preform
for final blow-molding into the final shape.

Sustainability

  • Lowest power consumption in the industry
  • Lower scrap rate during production
  • Less material wastage during color change

Superior Bottle Quality

  • CBF technology reduces variability, improving tolerances
    and statistical capability
  • Highly repetitive manufacturing process delivering superior consistency
  • Hot-runner free extruding system
  • No gate, no welding lines
  • Zero resin scrap during production
  • Improved sustainability and purity due to lower melt temperature

Total cost of the bottle

  • Higher efficiency
  • Lower start-up time
  • Lighter bottle with improved mechanical properties
  • Reduced labour requirements
  • Less floor space
