Fortify Your Forehearth

ACSI systems control all types of forehearths (gas and electric) to condition glass to the required forming temperatures. Many different types of strategies are employed to achieve this goal, including Model Based Control, with feedforward capability, and standard PID control. The type of strategy used is determined by your manufacturing conditions and needs. System features can include automatic heating and cooling control, setup tables, and temperature efficiency calculation and control.

Model Based Control can be used to directly control the 9-point grid temperatures in your forehearth. This strategy is capable of prioritizing the nine temperatures and holding your grid at is optimal temperatures.
