Section weight analysis is a technique in which the PET bottles are dissected into three sections and weighed to determine the equal distribution throughout the bottle. This analysis can be performed by using a highly efficient hot wire bottle cutting machine.

What is the importance of section weight analysis in PET bottle testing?

Prior PET bottle manufacturing, there are various quality assurance testing which are conducted to ensure high-quality mass production. Few of them are wall thickness testing, section weight analysis, transparency test, strain distribution analysis, base clearance testing, etc. 

Among these, section weight analysis is a unique process for measuring the thickness distribution of PET bottles. With precise section weight analysis, it is easy to determine the quality of PET bottles, as non-uniform distribution of weight in different sections can eventually lead to imperfections and a wide range of defects in the bottles.

Hot wire bottle cutter for proficient section weight analysis

Hotwire bottle cutter is an ideal testing instrument for PET bottles for section weight analysis. It has a unique design that transforms the bottle cutting procedure into an extremely simple method. It offers a high rate of repeatability along with precision which is vital for the accuracy of test results and analysis.

The instrument apparatus is equipped with an adjustable finish bottle holder to clamp a variety of bottle shapes which eventually eliminates the need for separate bottle holding the tool. Also, the support is adjustable and offers a strong hold on the bottle sample being tested during the cutting process.

The bottle cutting machine contains digital controls that are best for monitoring heat accurately which is the basic need of the test procedure on PET bottles. It can perform section weight analysis of bottles with capacities varying from 200ml to 2000ml and have a maximum diameter of 110mm.

The bottle cutter dissects the specimens in three precise parts that are bottom, top and cylinder for precise analysis of section weight. This helps in acquiring the best mechanical and physical quality requirements. The final production process for bottles is managed according to the test result of section weight analysis.
