Forming

Parison formation is the most critical step in the production of glass containers. Bucher Emhart Glass offers different sensors that help to monitor the process in order to stabilize it, reduce variation and ultimately increase the container quality.

FlexPressure System FPS

The Bucher Emhart Glass FlexPressure System FPS is technology to optimize and program the pneumatic process function on the forming machine.

On the parison formation, FPS is a well accepted technology for plunger up control and plunger cooling / counterblow optimization. Always standard on the NIS machine the FPS technology is a standard option on IS/AIS machines. Latest application of this technology is on final blow and finish cooling. FlexPressure System FPS

FlexRadar

The FlexRadar is a glass forming process analyzer utilizing high resolution infrared technology. It identifies “in real time” glass forming process deviations and quality issues. The FlexRadar monitors the container geometry, glass distribution in both vertical and horizontal axis and its position on the conveyor to identify cavities producing containers falling outside the standard quality criterias.

Plunger Process Control

The Bucher Emhart Glass Plunger Process Control System PPC is a product which monitors individual plunger motions during the parison forming process. The system uses full stroke sensors and a unique method to eliminate cabling in the plunger mechanism. Plunger Process Control PPC

Temperature Control System TCS

The Bucher Emhart Glass Temperature Control System TCS is a pyrometer based system which monitors mold equipment on the blank side of the forming machine.

Mounted on a rail in the region of the blank side panel, the pyrometer is capable of being programmed to measure and display individual blank temperatures, blank temperature vertical profiles, plunger temperatures, and neck ring temperatures. Temperature Control System TCS
