Bucher Emhart Glass statistical sampling machines are designed to provide frequent measurement of a variety of critical glass container dimensions through sampling, giving the glassmaker valuable feedback about the quality of the production and advance warning of any drift in the forming process.
These machines provide valuable product quality information where the bottlemaker can take immediate action, thus significantly reducing the response time to possible anomalies. Furthermore, by reducing the feedback time to the hot end operator they are very effective tools in bringing the forming process to target pack-to-melt and shortening the actual job change time.
These statistical sampling solutions ensure adherence to critical quality criteria and reduce plant labor via automation while improving measurement accuracy and repeatability.
Wall Thickness Gauge
The Wall Thickness Gauge uses a single non-contact chromatic sensor to measure the wall thickness of glass containers. A servo-controlled linear slide automatically keeps the chromatic sensor at optimal distance from the surface of round and non-round containers during the entire measurement sequence.
