High-performance machines for sustainable production of hollow parts

An important chapter in Kautex’s company history started with the development of the world’s first extrusion blow molding machine for commercial use. Kautex’s founder Reinold Hagen started experimenting with the first thermoplastics at an early stage. His aim was to blow it up while still maintaining its shape. The first machine for blowing PVC parisons emerged in 1949.

Today our customers benefit from our broad range of production systems for the manufacture of many different containers such as bottles, jerry cans, fuel tanks, composite pressure vessels and much more besides. Reducing your production costs is a key consideration during our development processes. In order to achieve this, we are continuously striving to optimize the production time and reduce the amount of material. It is also important for us to guarantee you the highest possible degree of sustainability, user-friendliness, and system availability.

Innovative solutions throughout the production process ensure you will have outstanding product quality while down times are reduced. With our extrusion blow molding technology we will help you to permanently strengthen your position in the market with individual possibilities for configuration and quick-change systems to increase the efficiency of production. We will also support you around the clock with our fast, comprehensive and globally-focused services.
