2001D Takeaway

For Bekum Blow Molding Machines and Other Shuttle Type Blowmolders

Watch The 2001D In Action

The 2001D takeaway system has been designed to increase productivity, eliminate downtime, and reduce long term operating costs.  It has the lowest cycle times of any takeaway system currently available yet features a very competitive price point.

The 2001D servo takeaway system removes bottles from each mold with perfect stability and orientation of each bottle, eliminating nicks or scratches on the bottles.  Our exclusive dual servo controlled gripper hands decrease cycle times by reducing overall motion and travel half the distance of any other takeaway systems to do the same amount of work.  The gripper hands come predrilled for water cooling if needed.  14” gripper hands are standard, but other smaller 10.5” or 7.5” gripper hands are available.

Machine Compatibility
While the 2001D system has been specifically designed to integrate with Bekum blowmolders, it works equally as well with several other types of shuttle type blowmolding machines.  (See model listings below.)

  • Bekum H111, H121, H151, H155
  • Fischer 54 or 106 series
  • Other Shuttle Type Blowmolders

PLC and Servo Systems
The 2001D uses the latest PLC and servo systems that Allen Bradley has to offer.  The user interface features a color touch screen with intuitive screens for easy access to all menus and stored setup recipes.  There are even self diagnostic screens to assist in troubleshooting.  Unlike some servo based equipment in the industry, Lectro provides all the ladder and PLC programs in a user friendly format so any knowledgeable technician can conveniently open and navigate through it.  All that is needed by the customer is a PC and the Allen Bradley software package.

We’ve also found that in the harsh blowmolding environment touch screens can become damaged and cease to function.  For other takeaways, this can be the kiss of death.  For an emergency just like this, when a screen is damaged, we specifically designed our electrical controls package so that the continued operation of the 2001D is not compromised.  This can easily save 24 hours of downtime.  Lectro used this mentality throughout our designing process and has tried to make our new 2001D as bulletproof as possible.  Our motto is to keep the line running under any condition.  Lectro believes that simpler IS better.

The daily operation of our 2001D is simple; just push two buttons located on the main control panel to startup the 2001D takeaway system.  As said above, the color touch screen is only used for “Easy Touch” bottle setup (setting up a new bottle recipe), to change to an existing recipe on a changeover or to utilize our exclusive self diagnostic screens.

Optional Deflash Station & Leak Detection Systems
As an option, the new 2001D can be purchased with our deflash station to remove scrap flash from handleware or other non-captive blown bottles.  The deflash station is easy to install and utilizes programming and wiring that is already included in the takeaway system.  This reduces the installation of the deflash station to a simple plug-n-play setup.

In some cases the 2001D deflash station can utilize existing deflash punch tooling packages from other manufacturers thereby reducing the need to invest in new deflash punch nest tooling.

Leak detection systems can be added downstream on our extended takeaway conveyor systems.
