Solutions for Glass Container Manufacturing


Reach optimum glass forming temperatures and optimize your manufacturing process with a customized control system developed specifically for your needs.

ACSI employs strategies developed from over 150 container and tableware installations to ensure you reach the optimum glass forming temperatures. Model Based Control with feedforward capability can be used to enhance PID systems in an effort to reduce job change time. The type of strategy is determined by your manufacturing conditions and needs.

Features of these systems can include automatic heating and cooling, control setup tables, and temperature efficiency calculation and control.

Utilize Model Based Control

ACSI control systems utilize model based control to help you achieve your desired melter temperature, pressure, glass level, and other critical parameters, as well as forehearth temperature. Model based control functions can be added to your existing control system or integrated into a new ACSI system.

Maximize Container Plant Performance

Increase the effectiveness of your plant by enhancing the control system from the Batch House through to glass conditioning.

Utilize Model Based Control to reduce job change time:

• Control Melter temperature, pressure, glass level, and other critical parameters.

• Use the innovative Model Based strategy to directly control your Forehearth's 9-point grid.

• Prioritize each point on the grid.

• Maximize melter performance by effectively controlling combustion and fuel profiling.

• Maintain combustion control per burner or per port.

• Perform automatic reversal with backup.

• Track materials using SQL server data reporting.

• Control working end heating and cooling on a per zone basis.

• Monitor and control Forehearth zone temperature gradient.

• Automatically control Lehr heating and cooling.

• Utilize crossover control for special applications.

• Employ setup tables to easily change products.

• Improve cold end operations by extending our control systems to glass conditioning equipment, ovens, and the packaging area.

• As with all ACSI systems, material verification and material inventory tracking are used for secure unloading, and the proprietary Automatic Preact Adjustment Algorithm ensures accurate weighing.
