Sklostroj: a new approach to IS machines - with Servo

2012-10-20 | Machinery developments

Thanks to its considerable experience and tradition in the hollow glass manufacturing sector, Sklostroj presents, in this article, its most recent development for the IS machine – with the installation of servo technology. And thanks to this technology, energy costs are considerably less, also reducing noise, speeding up production, improving quality and reducing downtime.

Sklostroj has developed an entirely new IS machine platform - the ISS machine
What is ISS?
ISS is an IS Machine, a so-called Individual Section machine. The additional S in the ISS stands for Servo. So in our case it is an Individual Section Servo machine. The servo concept is not new. However, compared to other industries, the container glass business was quite late in implementing servo technology into its applications. Over the last 10 years, only a very few mechanisms have been developed using servo technology.
Thanks to its good experience with servo axis and technology since about 2002, Sklostroj has taken this approach into consideration when developing an entirely new IS machine platform.
The new generation IS machine – the so-called ISS machine – has a huge number of servo axes and there can be up to 20 servo axes per section, depending on set-up and on the demands of each client. This is the highest number of individual servo motors per section if compared to any other IS machine supplier worldwide.
This high number of individual servo motors creates the lowest consumption of pneumatic pressed air and, therefore, saves up to 40 per cent of energy costs compared to ordinary pneumatic driven IS machines. These figures have been confirmed by Sklostroj’s customers, who are already using these machines.

What unique parameters does it provide?

The new generation ISS machine provides the lowest energy consumption, reduced noise level, high-speed production, quality improvements and reduction in downtime because of superior accessibility to all serv...
