Trim & Curl Wide-Mouth Bottles in One Machine.
The unit is designed for wide-mouth bottles produced from narrow-neck preforms, which have a dome on top of the container that must be trimmed. Subsequent lip rolling removes the sharp edge. The Belvac unit has six trim stations, each using a C-shaped knife and a trim-removal system. Six bottles at a time enter the curling station, where a heated mandrel compresses the top of the rotating bottle to produce a smooth edge.
