Your benefits

Compatible with your molds

Continue to use existing side-entry molds and post-mold cooling stations with the PET-Line without any loss of performance.

Reliably plan productivity

The PET-Line is designed for continuous operation at maximum capacity. That means reliable manufacturing around the clock in the shortest of cycle times. Our successful customers regularly confirm that Netstal preform machines still deliver the same powerful performance levels even after years of operation.

Effectively reduce energy consumption

We help you save electricity. Energy recuperation from the clamping unit and post-mold cooling unit make the PET-Line the most energy-efficient preform system on the market. You save energy costs and simultaneously reduce your company’s ecological footprint.

Consistently close product loops

We want PET to stay within the circular economy. This is the reason we developed the new PETX screw, which enables you to process 100% rPET and other sophisticated recyclates within a broad process window.

Cleverly absorb risks

Preforms are frequently manufactured in harsh industrial environments with unstable power supplies. This situation prompted us to develop the Cycle Guard. Cycle Guard effectively bridges power fluctuations within the millisecond range and in longer outages reliably finishes off the current cycle. Short shots are consequently prevented. Cycle Guard does not require batteries and is particularly low maintenance.

Continuously assure quality

The integrated testing system tests and documents the quality of your preforms in real time within the machine. Quality variations are monitored continuously in in-line operation. As a result of the rapid feedback and an extremely space-saving design inside the machine, this solution provides you with the smartest and most cost-effective inspection routine in preform production.

Sustainably increase availability

Our recipe to successfully increase your system availability: Reliable technology that manufactures at maximum speed with peak precision. In the unlikely event of a problem, you can always fall back on our global service network. Being localized, we can provide support either on-site or online.

Axos controller

The newly developed Axos 9 controller allows you to get the most out of your Netstal machine.

We developed the controller to meet the increasingly complex requirements of contemporary and future applications. Numerous innovative functions support straightforward, fast and faultfree operation within the production environment.

Need-based operation provides an optimal and settingspecific user experience for operators within the product environment as well as in application programing.

Thanks to the advanced hardware combination and new temperature control, we achieve the highest quality in terms of production parts as well as a concurrent reduction in energy.

The integrated Four-key Smart Operation control panel enables simple and safe machine control within the production environment. Operating errors are reliably avoided. Smart Operation lastingly increases the overall equipment efficiency of your injection molding production.

Netstal eService

Maintain peak production efficiency with our free eService. All machine specific documentation is provided here. Quickly identify and order the required spare parts with the 3D spare parts catalog. Use the ticketing system to directly request our support if required.


Netstal Remote Control

Access your machine controls at any time with Netstal Remote Control (NRC). Even complex application process settings can be adjusted remotely. Machine checks at change of shift can be carried out from the office to save the walk through the machine park. Use the collaborative potential to make internal technical assistance available oncall 24/7 and across all locations to support other plants.

Standardized data exchange

The Euromap 77 standard specifies the interface between injection molding machines and the overriding production control system. Systems (MES, ERP, QM, etc.). The basis for Euromap 77 and other Euromap interfaces for integrating periphery systems, such as Euromap 82.1 for temperature control devices and Euromap 82.2 for hot runner control devices, is OPC UA, one of the most widely used Industry 4.0 protocols. OPC UA enables standardized, manufacturerindependent and efficient data exchange between machines, devices and other systems within the industrial environment.
