American Plastics Technologies, Inc.
APT manufactures blow molding equipment for blow molded products. Our machines are easy to operate. You will find them very efficient and economical. We have been producing blow molding machinery for 30 years. Blow Fill Seal Machinery is another type of custom built machinery available through us. We have built a variety of custom packaging machines for Form Fill Seal pouches, to Shrink Wrapping machinery, to custom cutting and trimming machinery as well. We also have filling lines available and blow fill seal can give you aseptic filling.
In house blow molding allows control over package design, stock levels and sanitation that is not possible through outside procurement. The process involves the extrusion of material (plastic) clamping the two halves of a mold around the extrusion, and blowing air into the mold forming the container.
Blow Fill Seal Process
The mold can be designed to seal blocks of containers (ideal for ampoules) or individual units. A variety of closures can be utilized that are part of the molded container, completely eliminating the need for a separate capping process. Closure designs include twist-off, break-off, or cut-off.
5. Aseptic Packaging
The process of cleaning and sterilizing containers delivered form the outside is completely eliminated. The container material is automatically sterilized in the heated extrusion process and in the pressurized parison head. There is no danger of contamination while transporting the container to a filling or capping station as this all occurs within the mold.
6. Application Oriented Packaging
The benefit of using blow molded plastics is that the container can be manufactured in many different shapes and sizes. Collapsible packing is widely used for infusion solutions. The soft plastic material allows for the administration of intravenous solutions without the need for air compensation (filters or venting).
The complete Blow/Fill/Seal machine allows for considerable savings in space, increased efficiency and complete sterility.
