Preform Loading System
* Handling four at a time, preforms are loaded neck-up in heat-dissipating 
  aluminum collets.  Adjustable guides and drivers and easily changed collet 
  sleeves accommodate various neck finishes, capping ring diameters and 
  preform lengths.
* Hardened steel cams provide longer life for loading, indexing and ejecting 

SPECTRAWAV Heating System
* Firmly seated in the oven collets, preforms rotate continously as they index 
  through Cincinnati Milacronís unique SPECTRAWAV heating system.
* The new “T” section quartz lamp placement, coupled with Cincinnati Milacron’s 
  pulsating controller, provides more uniform heating across the preform wall 
  and improved profiling capabilities.  This results in lower energy and blow 
  air pressure requirements and long lamp life.
* Optimum processing parameters are attainable by means of adjustments of 
  individual lane water baffles, the equilibration zone, and the dual air 
  exhaust system.

Control Systems
* Centralized controls simplify startup and allow monitoring of all vital 
  machine operations from the operator station.
* The SPECTRAWAV oven control system with LED temperature readouts and the 
  oven conveyor speed control are located at the operator station for 
  convenient single-station machine control.

Preform Pickup and Transfer System
* A simple, high speed chain conveyor system with a Ferguson cam operated index 
  box for accurate conveyor movement provides smooth conveying of the preforms 
  from the oven to the blow station, then to the eject station, and back to the 
  oven loading station.
* The transfer system transports the heated preforms from the oven and positions
  them on spindles.  The spindles hold the preforms on the inside diameter of 
  the finish.  This insures the  preform finish is protected during the blow 
  molding and ejection.
* The chain conveyor system provides low cost replacement parts and eases of 

High Pressure Blow Air Station
* High production and versatility are both possible through the use of high 
  quality, watercooled, aluminum alloy blow molds.
* Dovetail mounting makes mold alignment and changeover easy.
* Uniformly dispersed, high pressure blow air is introduced to the preforms 
  through the individually controlled stuffer and around the air 
  dispersion rods.
* Fast cycle times are possible through the use of large air supply lines, a 
  double entrance blow air manifold, and enlarged air exhaust system, and a 
  short stroke stuffer.
* The POWER CLAMP, utilizing 55 tons of clamping force, firmly holds the mold 
  halves in place producing high quality containers at high pressures.
* Versatility for custom containers and single piece bottles is possible 
  through the options of the top centering package, or a toggle unit for 
  three piece molds.

Eject Station
* Simple, positive-assist container ejection system releases finished 
  containers to customer supplied take-away equipment.

* Lower unit costs are now possible with Cincinnati Milacronís RHB-W, a 
  two-stage, four lane reheat-blow molding machine.  Designed to produce 
  biaxially oriented containers, the RHB-W meets the demand for higher 
  production rates dictated by todayís increasingly competitive markets.
* Although designed for use in high volume markets, the RHB-W with its easy 
  change-over capabilities, can produce narrow-necked containers ranging in 
  capacity from * liter to 3 liters suitable for many markets including 
  carbonated beverages, alcoholic beverages, food products, and household 
* Utilities required are electric power, air and water.  Auxiliary equipment 
  and tooling necessary includes container molds, preform unscrambler-loader, 
  container take-away equipment, high pressure compressor and a mold chiller.

* Other neck finish sizes:  ranging from 20 to 38 mm;  standard is 28 mm.
* Bottom toggle:  necessary for three-piece container molds.
* Top centering device:  utilizes center rods made to precise lengths.
