SD Series Soft Drop

All around your shape

SD Series Soft Drop

The SD Series offers a range of Soft Drops, i.e. pneumatically-operated storage devices for preforms and plastic material exiting injection moulding machines.
The material exiting the injection moulding machine is conveyed and channelled directly to the Soft Drop via a TB Series conveyor belt installed on the machine. The flat belt in the Soft Drop makes it possible to sort the material by alternately loading the hoppers/chutes of the Soft Drop. Once the loading phase is complete, the hopper descends and releases the material at a predetermined minimum height, preventing the material from being damaged during the unloading phase.


PET Solutions has a range of machines with two to several loading stations, designed to meet the different needs at this stage of production. In addition, the height and width of the structure are adjustable and can be designed according to the layout required by the customer.
