The 2001D takeaway system has been designed to increase productivity, eliminate downtime, and reduce long term operating costs. It has the lowest cycle times of any takeaway system currently available, yet features a very competitive price point.

The 2001D servo takeaway system removes bottles from each mold with perfect stability and orientation of each bottle, eliminating nicks or scratches on the bottles. Our exclusive dual servo controlled gripper hands decrease cycle times by reducing overall motion and travel half the distance of any other takeaway systems to do the same amount of work. The gripper hands come predrilled for water cooling if needed. The 14” gripper hands are standard, but other smaller 10.5” or 7.5” gripper hands are available.

Machine Compatibility

While the 2001D system has been specifically designed to integrate with Bekum blowmolders, it works equally as well with several other types of shuttle type blowmolding machines. (See model listings below.)


PLC and Servo Systems

The 2001D leverages a high precision servo system and programmable controller which allows for easy and repeatable setup and configuration for a wide-range of containers produced by the blow molding machine. The system can store setup parameters for hundreds of different containers for easy access and quick change-overs. The user interface features a color touch screen with intuitive screens for quick access to all menus and stored setup parameters for each bottle. In addition, the system is designed with self diagnostic screens to assist in troubleshooting and startup. Unlike some servo based equipment from other vendors, MTM Systems does not limit or prevent customers from accessing the supporting programming for the servos, user-interface or programmable controllers.

In the unfortunate situation where the color user interface screen is damaged or rendered inoperable, the 2001D is specifically designed and programmed in a manner that allows the continued operation of the 2001D. This design feature can easily save many hours of line downtime. Lectro used this “failure analysis” approach throughout the design process with the goal and focus of keeping the line running.



The daily operation of our 2001D is simple; just push two buttons located on the main control panel to startup the 2001D takeaway system. As said above, the color touch screen is only used for “Easy Touch” bottle setup (setting up a new bottle recipe), to change to an existing recipe on a changeover or to utilize our exclusive self diagnostic screens.


Optional Deflash Station & Leak Detection Systems

As an option, the new 2001D can be purchased with our deflash station to remove scrap flash from handleware or other non-captive blown bottles. The deflash station is easy to install and utilizes programming and wiring that is already included in the takeaway system. This reduces the installation of the deflash station to a simple plug-n-play setup.

In some cases, the 2001D deflash station can utilize existing deflash punch tooling packages from other manufacturers, thereby reducing the need to invest in new deflash punch nest tooling.

Leak detection systems can be added downstream on our extended takeaway conveyor systems.
