Title: RESHAPING STATION FOR RESHAPING PLASTIC PREFORMS, COMPRISING A SECURING MECHANISM FOR LATERAL PARTS
Abstract:
The invention relates to a reshaping station (20) for reshaping plastic preforms into plastic containers, wherein the reshaping station comprises a blow mold (1) for reshaping plastic preforms into plastic containers, said blow mold having a base part, a first lateral part (4), and a second lateral part (6). In the assembled state of the blow mold, the base part together with the lateral parts (4, 6) forms a cavity within which the plastic preforms can be expanded in order to form the plastic containers. The reshaping station also comprises a support device for supporting the blow mold, and the support device has a first lateral part support (34) and a second lateral part support (36), said first lateral part (4) being arranged on the first lateral part support (34) and said second lateral part (6) being arranged on the second lateral part support (36). According to the invention, at least one lateral part (4, 6) is arranged on the paired lateral part support (34, 36) by means of a securing mechanism (40), and the securing mechanism (40) has a clamping element (47, 47a), which can be moved in a clamping direction (S), for clamping the securing mechanism, said clamping direction (S) differing from a radial direction (R) of the blow mold part (4, 6).
