Follow-up order from HEINZ-GLAS

, Futronic GmbH

Since April 2015 a 10 section IS-machine from GPS with Servo-Take-Outs (STO) has been in operation at the HEINZ-GLAS plant in Kleintettau, the company's headquarter: Instead of the six usual movement phases the STO-mechanisms now pass through eight at the production line. Why? Through emitting cooling the temperature in the glass starts to fall already at take-out of the container. To lower the glass temperature gently before one of the flacons HEINZ-GLAS produces is positioned on the conveyor belt, the futronic technicians have integrated an additional cooling cycle into the servo-take-out-process, as requested by the customer. Here it was important not to affect the timing of the machine and with this the production process.

This was not easy. „Servo-mechanisms are generally not insignificant, and in this case the take-out gripper should take positions, which are not even provided for the classical Servo-Take-Out-Procedure ", explains Murat Yolaçan, who is responsible for the project at futronic - an innovation in the glass production. „We have managed it." Not least due to our control system FMT24S, „which offers, independent from the machine manufacturer, a high degree of freedom and a wide scope for individual solutions."

The responsible at HEINZ-GLAS are impressed and content, and ordered the fitting of a STO on a second production line, a six section IS-Machine from Emhart. The task is to configure and equilibrate FMT24S and the drive system FDU24S in a way that two additional movement phases could be smoothly implemented into the timing- and production process, and help to improve glass quality. Implementation, first tests and finally the commissioning of the system are planned for March 2016.
