2014-12-20 | Forming

Always attentive to the needs and demands of its clients, and in consideration of the costs behind even the smallest mistakes in the glassmaking sector, Quantum has the Total Forming Analysis System. The TFA™, as it is called, is an automatic gob weight control and process control system that responds to the needs and demands of global-based glassmakers, fillers, and consumers alike.

Quantum Engineered Products: real-time forming process control with automatic gob weight control
Quantum Engineered Products, Inc., a US-based company, is continuing to advance its Total Forming Analysis System. The TFA™ is an automatic gob weight control and process control system that has been operating behind the scenes in some of the world’s most successful glass container manufacturing plants for some time now.
In response to the ever increasing demands for light weighting and container quality, Quantum has developed this blank side forming system that will satisfy the needs of glassmakers, fillers, and consumers. There is very little room for mistakes to be made in the glass container industry, especially when you consider how costly production defects can be, more so, if they reach the consumer. Manufacturers put their reputation, and the industry’s, on the line with every container that is produced. This is why a state-of-the-art system, such as the TFA™, is crucial in the effort to keep glass as the best packaging choice. If glassmakers are to continue to compete against non-glass packaging, the industry must increase productivity, decrease energy consumption and lessen their environmental impact. These goals can be met with the assistance of a quality process and gob weight controller like Quantum’s TFA™.
