Emhart Glass: High performance, quality, flexibility and control

2011-07-01 | Containers

IS machines have served the glasscontainer industry well. Originally developed by Emhart Glass, IS technology has been in use for over 80 years, and is still going strong. However, these eight decades have seen continuous change and modernizations to improve efficiency, flexibility and quality.

Emhart Glass: High performance, quality, flexibility and control
Control systems are critical to reliability and precision, and have been the focus for some of the most dramatic leaps in technologyat Emhart Glass. During the 1980s, Emhart created the T600 control, which became the industry standard for 25 years. Many units are still in use. In 2004, we introduced FlexIS, the first fully integrated control system that could oversee the glass-container forming process from the feeder to the stacker. Since then, almost 400 complete systems and 120 standalones have been installed. As a consequence of this success, the T600 control system became obsolete in 2006, with a guaranteed supply of spare parts until 2016.

BIRTH OF TS-E
Emart’s latest control innovations offer new levels of integration, usability and modular expansion. In 2010, customers began to ask whether FlexIS could be expanded to encompass a FlexPressure System (FPS), FlexPusher, Servo Takeout (SETO) or Servo Invert (SEI). In response, we restructured FlexIS to create the fully integrated FlexIS TS-E (Timing System Expandable) control system. TS-E uses the same components as before, but unifies the section, machine and ware-handling controllers into a single system. Its simple, three-module configuration helps to keep spare-parts costs to a minimum. The system is capable of controlling both pneumatic and servo-electric devices, and can also mix analogue and servo valves within the same event. TS-E can control a maximum of 12 sections, or as many as 24 in tandem configuration. All ...
