Ware Handling for best results

In modern glass container manufacture, high production results require good forming techniques. There is also a need for a modern ware handling system to meet increasing speed and precision demands. Heye International provides advanced ware handling solutions to maximise results.

In addition to the assemblies that are assigned to ware handling at first glance, such as pushers, ware transfer and lehr loaders, other components play a role that have a significant influence on the quality of transport. This starts with a modern servo takeout mechanism that positions the containers calmly and precisely above the dead plate. A prerequisite for high pusher speeds is that the containers are standing properly and consistently tempered on the dead plate. This is guaranteed by a unique dead plate cooling control, which keeps the amount of cooling air and the time interval on a constant and optimal level. Exactly constant belt speeds for both the machine belt and the cross belt are ensured by the modern Simotion® drive system, in order to be able to achieve synchronization between the other components.
