FlexBlow launches blowing, inspection & palletizing machine
The patented innovation integrates blowing, quality control, and packing

FlexBlow, a Lithuania-based manufacturer of blow molding machines, has introduced BlowPack, a turn-key solution for complete manufacturing automation from preforms to palletized containers. This patented innovation integrates blowing, quality control, and packing into one system. 

Load the preforms in the morning and collect strapped pallets of containers in the evening – with BlowPack, we took automation by a leap forward,” says Gintautas Maksvytis, CEO of FlexBlow. 

The first-of-its-kind machine integrates patented auto quality control innovations to assure that 100% of containers are inspected, and even a single unqualified bottle is removed from the system before palletizing stage.

FlexBlow, the manufacturer of the world’s most flexible stretch blow molding machines, harps on flexibility with BlowPack. It can produce, inspect and palletize containers up to 6 L, standard blowing and hot-fill processes can be available on the same machine, and complete changeover takes just half an hour.

BlowPack is said to be the most compact end-to-end blowing, inspection, and palletizing system in the industry and takes only half of the floor space compared to the traditional layout.  

FlexBlow had invited packaging industry businesses to see BlowPack live in Lithuania till the end of K 2022

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.
