Temperature is one of the most important process variables in the stretch blow moulding process, yet current measurement techniques are limited.

BMT’s patented THERMOscan technology allows the simultaneous measurement of the internal and external preform temperature profile, providing the user with the data they need to make informed decisions.


BMT has created an intelligent stretch rod that contains a pressure sensor – for measuring the air pressure development right in the expanding preform, and a load cell – located at the tip of the stretch-rod to accurately measure the stretching force.


Simultaneous measurement of air pressure and stretching force during stretch blow moulding provides users with the data they need to optimise their process.
