Production Trend Identification Systems In The Glass Container Industry

The ALS 600 Forming Process Control System is a real time Trend Indicator System which can conservatively increase the percent pack by 1%. It monitors dimension faults as well as critical glass defects. This additional 1% of product ware going to customers rather than to the cullet conveyor creates greater potential profit. Based on a typical six-line glass production plant in the USA, this additional production generates an increase in cash flow of $1.8m/year.
