The company Gedevelop was established in 1986 as a result of a buy out of a product line developed by the R&D department of Gullfiber AB, nowadays Isover – Saint-Gobain. This product line – GFM, Glass Flow Measurement – had been in service in the Gullfiber plant for a number of years and with the forming of Gedevelop the aim became to achieve a wider expansion of the system world-wide.
By now the GFM system has found its application in as much as 80-90% of all glass fibre plants. About 1600 cameras have been supplied and are in operation all over the world market. While achieving world-wide acceptance of GFM installations, Gedevelop started to focus on another concept based on identical principles but meant for measurement and control of gobs in the glass container industry.
It was at the request of and in co-operation with the glass container industry that the GIA - Gob Image Analyser – concept was developed. Now, since its introduction some 15 years ago, close to 400 GIA camera units have been successfully installed. The closed-loop concept of the GIA, nowadays available with multiple camera configurations, is widely appreciated as the only in its kind for accurate measurement and control in the very early phase of the gob forming process.
Another product line, launched in 2008, is the GVS-Glass Vision System. It is a unique trend analysis tool that rapidly and precisely detects deviations in the hot end section of the glass container manufacturing process, regardless of the temperature of the product. With the GVS-system several deviations and product defects can be detected. The GVS provides both trend-based data and real-time detection and rejection of glass containers with critical parameters.
The company Gedevelop AB offers its products and services in the area of Automatic Gob Weight Control, GFM Glass Flow Measurement, GIA Optical Image Analysis, Glass Flow Meter - GFM, Glass Vision System - GVS, Online Gob Temperature Measurement
