Optimized Pneumatic Process
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.
New valve designs are now available to allow programmable FPS technology to be applied to the final blow. This allows for increases in productivity and quality.
With the FlexIS forming control the optimization of pressure profiles are job dependent and stored as part of the job set up data.
