Automation

Is our technology; the intelligence that makes our equipment ‘smarter’. Through these innovative automation systems and associated technology, glass plants will be able to read, analyze and automatically react to data. It will enable them to achieve greater performance, reliability and profitability.

Automation

Closed Loop Products


Closed loops focus on monitoring and automating adjustments to streamline the hot end production process. By controlling a combination of functions we can provide a process with reduced variations and lower the necessity for manual interaction and operator know-how. This works to provide greater overall control, stabilizing the process and reducing variations.

Automation

Robots


End to End fully integrates robots into the process. Not just travelling in front of the machine and spraying lubricant into the blanks to result in more consistent swabbing, but also taking on other tasks around the machine. This increases safety, and by reducing variants, provides a constant level of quality for fewer bottle losses.

Automation

FlexControlCenter


The Control Center acts as the central location, which connects, both ends of the process and allows the review of all data. With so many sensors, controls and screens, it is difficult for operators to have a simple overview of the production process.

However, End to End’s central hub means the data is consolidated, to not only make it easier to understand, but for the plant’s data to be stored, analyzed and monitored.

End to End

End to End technology will power the glass plant of the future, with integrated equipment that will document, analyze, and react to data automatically to ensure product quality and optimize operation. 

Products will be immediately traceable. Employees will be safer and more productive. And plant operations will run at peak efficiency to achieve optimum productivity and result in increased profitability. END to END
