Automated glass production
Glass production has quietly moved into the modern age; many processes, from gob formation to glass shaping now take advantage of modern control systems to improve performance and ensure quality. Mass flow controllers and meters are used at many stages of production (see our glass manufacturing industry page ) to ensure precise delivery of process gases. Pressure controllers and meters ensure that sensitive processes such as extrusion happen at the right time, with the right pressure needed. The entire glass manufacturing process is further controlled by upstream software integrating a myriad of data and controllers.
