In line with the JetWeb Option Optimization pushing processes for hot glass bottles with the FlexStacker were optimized in collaboration with company Bucher Emhart Glass. The built-in expert knowledge allows the operator to setup the stacker with only a few clicks. The advantage of this optimization is certainly also, that it is suited for blockwise pushing processes of arbitrary objects. Namely, an optimal pushing profile is determined automatically for each object regarding its geometric and dynamic constraints.

So even fast processes with up to 24 cycles per minute with a maximum belt speed of 72 m/min can be realized very smooth, what is considered a major advance in precision ware handling.

You can see in the slow motions how smooth the pushbar moves between the oncoming objects without violating any constraint. Thereby the pushbar is exactly at one point synchronous to the object stream, namely when taking the objects into grip.
