SKYREEF blow molding machines – Our flexible platform solution
With the new SKYREEF series, we now offer a modern and highly flexible production solution for high quality articles from a single source with the full potential of our control system and services.
Why we created SKYREEF
In a fast-changing world with regularly changing market conditions, customer requirements change, new technological solutions emerge on a shorter basis than ever and with this, also new possibilities to make machines even better. Our customers requirements are becoming much more differentiated and our extrusion blow molding machines need to be even more versatile.
New versatile machine concept
With our new standardised SKYREEF platform solution, you can now choose many options. You decide whether it comes as a hydraulic, all-electric or hybrid version. It is a end to end Kautex platform, with optimized modules that are designed to match each other.
Hybrid: SKYREEF BLUE
All-Electric: SKYREEF GREEN
Sustainability is one of the most important drivers in our industry. We are striving to save costs by reducing the consumption of energy and raw materials. Still focusing on highest article quality and production performance.
Global production flexibility
The SKYREEF platform is assembled in equal parts at our production facilities in Bonn/Germany and Shunde/China.

Reasons for Kautex
Reduced energy requirement
All-electric machines with recovery of braking energy and efficient melting
Harmonious movement profiles in conjunction with the highest speeds and shortest additional process times
Highest repeat accuracy from the first second of the start of production
Lowest energy consumption, reduced use of material and shortest change over times
Material and energy savings plus PCR processing
Fast color change
With the patented RapidXchange technology, we have developed a way to reduce the purging process by up to 75%.
Fast mold change
A change of product is often associated with loss of production time and risks. KBB machines are designed to reduce such downtimes.
Trainee pilots practice on flight simulators before they are allowed to take control of a real aircraft. And now there is a similar simulator for blow molding machines from Kautex Maschinenbau.
Kautex foam technology “K-Foam” brings substantial savings on material useage and an improved carbon footprint in the production of blow-molded products. All Kautex Maschinenbau machines can be equipped or retrofitted with this system.
The outstanding efficiency of the all-electric extrusion blow molding machines is confirmed by the latest test based on the Euromap 46.1 standards. Several Kautex machines of the KBB series achieved the best energy efficiency classification 10.
The IntelliGate system from Kautex Maschinenbau turns your KBB blow molding machine into a complete production plant.
