AUTOMATIC BLOW MOLDER MAINTENANCE By.

Tobin Widick 

We should not forget to remove ALL of the preform discs from the machine to apply grease on the track throughout the machine. This is listed in our weekly maintenance program for all of the automatic blow molders. This includes the BM1500, the BM3000 and the BM4500. Once all of the plates are removed the old grease needs to be wiped clean from the track and the preform holders. This is a very important step as the grease catches contaminants and small dirt/shavings that when left on the machine can cause damage over time. Once all of the old grease and debris is removed from the track we can now apply a light film of new grease to the tracks and reinstall the preform holders.
