FlexIS Control System

flexis

Reliable, flexible and expandable

The FlexIS Process Control System is the core component that makes automation of the container forming process possible. In addition to controlling a forming machine, FlexIS is capable of fully driving all mechanisms from feeder to stacker.

Latest developments include closed loop control technology, giving real automation solutions to the glass forming process. Much more than a forming control system, FlexIS is conceived as a full process control system capable of directing all of the various events and actions required to produce high quality glass containers. The FlexIS system is designed to be the neurological center for the glass container production process.
