For producers of glass containers the competitive situation today means that the highest quality of machinery with the maximum productivity and minimum downtime is a pre-requisite for success. As ecological awareness in consumers grows, the industry has to respond with lighter and stronger products.
Hot End ware handling has to ensure the stable transport of the still hot and fragile containers from the IS machine into the lehr. This is the part of the production process where good ware can only be lost or damaged and the speed as well as the efficiency of the entire production line can be limited.
Bucher Emhart Glass has reliable and innovative control systems for managing the different types of IS machines in its portfolio. There has been a quantum leap with the introduction of the FlexIS Control, a control system born from the collaboration between Emhart Glass and Jetter AG, merged now in the Bucher Group.
