AIS

AIS

Advanced Pneumatic Glass Container Forming

The unique parallel Mold Open and Close mechanism MOC enables more balanced cooling, improves mold equipment alignment and permits equal parison reheat. User experience shows mold wear can be reduced by up to 30%, resulting in better containers at lower cost.

The combination of an improved pneumatic system, highly efficient VertiFlow cooling, and parallel MOC motion ensures stable operation at higher cavity rates.

Market demand for containers is often unpredictable. To cope with changing requirements, the AIS machine can be converted between 6 1/4 DG and 4 1/4 TG within less than a shift. The AIS machine provides the most cost-effective way to benefit from familiar technology and comes as a standard with of Servo Electric Take Out and Invert mechanisms. For increased safety AIS is equipped with the combination of FlexIS Manual Mode and Blank side Barrier.
