Product category: Stacker systems

Servo hydraulic high-speed stacker type ELC852

All three axes are traversed in a closed speed and position control loop so that at any time absolute reproducibility of all movements can be guaranteed regardless of external environmental influences.

Automatic synchronization of transverse stroke speed to the cross belt
Practical interlocking of all three controlled axes to each other
Variable programing of speeds and positions
Variable, custom programming of the acceleration and deceleration ramps of all three servo-controlled axes
Minimum cycle time 3.0 seconds
Hand-held terminal for parameter adjustment
BSoftware operating language in German, English and French
Ethernet TCP/IP interface for connection to a LAN system
Work programs written on the PC can be transferred to the stacker or from the stacker to the PC via the network
Solid machine frame with integrated cross stroke and longitudinal lifting frame
Hydraulic unit to supply the three moving axes with oil pressure
Control cabinet with integrated control electronics

MACS conveyor elements

Conveyor elements from the MACS system form the basis for complete conveyor systems. These in turn are based on the MAPS aluminium profile system. This makes it possible to access proven standard products and provide compelling solutions for almost all tasks.

The conveying elements which are listed in the MACS product catalogue also form the basis for other, mostly customer-specific solutions.

The MACS product catalogue includes the following standard version conveying elements:

Carrier >> Pallet workpiece support frame and workpiece carriers in standard designs.
Conveyors >> Single belt, double belt, accumulating roller chain conveyors and roller tracks.
Deflector >> in different designs.
Transfer >> Hub-transfer, lifting bar, vertical lift and vertical lifter.
Stations >> Singulator, positioning units, lifting station, lifting and rotating station, overview of special designs.

Servo-pneumatic plunger control system with integrated process

An important step in the glass container production is the pre-forming (shaping of the mouth) of the hot glass tub at about 1100° C using a device known as the plunger mechanism. This mechanism is located on the blank side of the glass container forming machine. The function of the mechanism is decisive for the quality and strength of the glass containers.

Advantages of HIMMEL® plunger system

Variable programing of the of the output, charging and maximum position without mechanical changes
Variable programing of glass deformation rates
Absolute displacement and force measurement over the entire stroke of the plunger enables complete transparency of the glass deformation in each individual pre-forming operation.
Optimal formation of the mouth and prevention of wrinkles using numerous individually programmable individual parameters
Display and storage of all drop weight fluctuations per plunger – both between plungers inside / outside and between individual stations
Rejection of defective products by monitoring the pressure curve progression over infinitely programmable tolerance bands and automatic drop weight control by achieving a very precise mathematical mean value
Statistical acquisition and print-out of all preform production data, such as: Drop weight fluctuations per station and plunger, drop weight per plunger and the number of cut and successfully processed drops in the preform
Display of possible errors via a diagnostic program
Improved quality of the glass containers produced and a reduction in the number of rejects
Increased process speed
