Perfect cycle from hot to cold

The manufacture of glass containers calls for complex plant layouts which facilitate absolutely precise cycles and reliable 365/24/7 operation under extreme production conditions such as heat.

The Jetter automation solutions for glass forming machines integrate time sequence control (timing), the entire servo control, machine control, ware handling and diverse additional smaller control tasks. This approach eliminates interface complications between inconsistent systems. Ethernet-TCP/IP is used as integrated network technology. This enables a continuity from the control room through remote control via the Internet, the online database, the visualization and operation modules and up to ware handling.

The automation solutions come into play in practically all the plant segments:

  • Gob formation (feeder, shears)
  • Gob distribution (gob distributor)
  • Pre-forming of the containers
  • Transfer
  • Final forming of the containers
  • Transport of the bottles to the lehr (ware handling)
  • Container inspection
