• 100% control during forming process
  • Installation in blowing machine
  • Real time measurements results
  • real time machine adjustment possible
  • Output increase
  • Intended purpose: Measuring the thickness of cylindrical and slightly irregular vessels/transparent to coloured glass
  • Measuring principle: confocal, chromatic aberration
  • Measuring accuracy: 0.02mm STDEV
  • Nominal distance: 46 mm
  • Tilt/ND: +/– 11°
  • Light source: LED, approx. 25.000 h operating time
  • Power supply: 12 V DC (via base unit)

Transfer station

  • faster production cycle – 2 to 3 pieces more per min.
  • exact pressing due to servomotor
  • gap-free gob transfer due to servoactuator
  • by usage of a rotary distributor no more leakage of flexible hoses during gob transfer
  • can be retrofitted onto all FORMA blowing machine

New drive system for presses

  • special ring gear drive system with 2 Servoactuators designed for high load and less backlash
  • presses with mould radius 30” and max. press capacity 30 kN need no taple support
  • 2 rotary serve actuators with water cooling for high speed drive The actuators are combined at acceleration and deceleration – at positioning they work against each other with abt. 30% of its torque – this secures highest precision
  • high torsional rigidity and coupling free integration between motor and transmission
  • drive system is designed for 0,4 sec for moving presstable with mold radius 38” abt. 22,5 degree

Servohydraulic for pressing

  • in the new presses we also use a new method in the Stationary Hydraulics - Hybrid Ram with Closed Loop Oil Circuit. This system permits high power density and high dynamics.
  • the new press-unit conists of the following components:
  • press-cylinder double acting
  • servo motor and servo pumps, aligned with the cylinder surfaces
  • compensation tank and pressure safety valve
  • the new press-unit is fixed on the crossbar of the press
