Using simulation to determine glass thickness - PAKFORMING
Did you know that Empakglass uses internally developed software to determine the glass thickness distribution?
We call it:
How does it work?
Using each client's specific glass properties, type of IS machine, product process and CR, we determine which orifice ring and delivery system to use, as well as the gob temperature.
These are the initial inputs, which are coupled to the blanks and blow mould temperatures in order to simulate the results.
In a further step, we simulate filling line conditions, like handling, capping, pasteurization as well as pallet storage and transport conditions and even correlate the results with the actual filling line mapping, to determine the breakage percentage at each step of the process.
This integrated process is used during the development of a new concept bottle as well as for lightweighting or even troubleshooting scenarios.
