For several years now, TIAMA has been one of the most important providers of solutions dedicated to the hot end. The “Tiama HOT systems” are sensors located all around the IS machine, from the gob with the Tiama HOT mass, to the exit of the IS machine with the Tiama HOT eye, the Tiama HOT form and the Tiama HOT move. Each sensor has specific features to meet different customers’ expectations, but all share the same electrical cabinet. With this modular approach, customers can gradually invest over the years to facilitate the integration of these systems into their plant.
In recent years, customer needs have changed in factories, and more and more want their different systems to be able to communicate with each other. To fulfil this need TIAMA has developed a solution called the Tiama ECO-System.
Tiama ECO-System is a web page available anywhere in the plant, gathering the different data from all the TIAMA machines. The Tiama HOT systems range is fully integrated into the Tiama ECO-System. Images of the articles rejected at the hot end by the Tiama HOT eye and the Tiama HOT form, and also by the cold end machines, the MCAL4 and MULTI4 are displayed in the “Gallery” menu of the Tiama ECO-System.
In the “Analytics” menu, statistics of rejects by machines and detections are represented over time or by section or mould numbers. The Tiama ECO-System facilitates the link between the hot end and the cold end. It is even possible to link the cavity with the mould numbers and to apply the lehr time to get an accurate correlation between what happened at the hot end and at the cold end for the same batch of articles.
The combination of Tiama HOT systems and Tiama ECO-System is totally in line with the company’s overall strategy to develop solutions gathering and analyzing more data all over the plant.
It is also part of the Smart Glass Solutions provided by Tiama with its YOUniverse concept to support the customers towards Smart Factory.
