  Containers

XPAR Vision gave a presentation at the 91st Glastechnische Tagung 2017 entitled “Container Glass Forming in 2020/2025: the Dark Factory”.

Mr. Paul Schreuders, CEO of XPAR Vision: “As an industry we can do 20-30% better than today!”
At the end of May this year, XPAR Vision was invited by Professor Dr. Ing.

Since then, the company has grown into a technology leader in the fields of hot end sensors, automated closed loops and robot applications within the global container glass industry. From this background, Schreuders commented on the characteristics of container glass forming and production today.
Schreuders: “Due to unpredictable changes in cullet quality, viscosity, temperature, homogeneity, ambient temperature, deterioration and wear of material, the glass forming process itself is not stable and the outcome is often unpredictable.

As a result, we even introduce more variations, for instance by swabbing (every operator swabs differently).”
“Knowing the IS machines have become bigger and bigger (up until 48 cavities), it is simply impossible for any operator to control the process up to a higher level than we do tod...
