The Heye Rotor Mechanism Type 2372 is mounted at the feeder channel. By a rotating movement of the toothed ring three paddles provide for a stirring movement in the glass mass and thus keep it homogeneous.
The Rotor Mechanism is driven by a servo motor. The generated movement is deflected at the bevel wheel by 90° (from horizontal to radial) so that the sprocket executes a rotating movement.
The motion of the servo motor is controlled by Heye Simotion ®  Servodrive.
