Servo Feeder System

The Servo Feeder System offers the ability to improve production quality and customize the gob forming. The Feeder System includes the Feeder Plunger, Tube Height and Rotation and the Shear Mechanism as well as the optional Metering Spout System. The  Metering Spout features reduced servo tube sensitivity and improved thermal and weight varations. This degree of control with the servo-driven gob forming equipment reduces glass loss and optimizes feeder and shear performance. The Feeder System is available fully integrated into the FlexIS Process Control System and also as a standalone version interfaces with existing non FlexIS timing systems.
