HiPERFORM – EXCELLENCE IN FORMING
HEYE SMART PLANT CONCEPT Heye International’s automation strategy and the development of closed loop production concepts are helping glass container producers to realise high productivity improvements. Following the flow of glass, a series of innovative and proven solutions are offered:
AUTOMATIC SWABBING The Swabbing Robot is the latest in a series of equipment developments from Heye International to optimize the glass container production process. In combination with the company’s Multilevel Safety Concept, the SpeedLine IS-Machine increases work safety, in addition to providing higher product quality and improved productivity.
HIGH-SPEED COOLING AND ADVANCED CLOSING MECHANISM The new parallel mould opening-and-close mechanism is provided additional value by a powerful and high performance 360° cooling device. The optimized airflow conditions result in an improved heat release: And this allows maximum speed. Operation with pneumatic or servo drive is possible.

HiSHIELD – COLD END INSPECTION SOLUTIONS
NEW RANGER 2: THE NEXT GENERATION OF CAMERA CHECK DETECTION The new HiSHIELD Ranger 2 is a camera check detection system for the SmartLine, designed to inspect the finish, heel, shoulder or bottom of a glass container for checks. Being fully modular and scalable, the Ranger 2 eliminates the disadvantages of similar systems which are already available in the market. It can be configured exactly matching your needs and budget with the chance to upgrade whenever necessary.
HIGH-END WALL THICKNESS MEASUREMENT Heye’s new MTE electronic module can handle the standard single-point, as well as the new MTS multi-point sensor with 5 measuring points in a length of 10mm. A flexible combination of the sensors is possible. In total, 12 measuring points can be processed. Of course, Heye uses the precise chromatic-confocal measuring method. The solution is available for the SmartLine and also as a standalone version.
Delivering superior thermal homogeneity and top weight consistency, the Heye rotor mechanism has been widely adopted by the international hollow glass community, even by customers not operating the German company’s advanced IS-Machines. The rotating movement of the rotor segments provides good thermal homogeneity of the glass melt, the equipment’s proven design guaranteeing reliable functionality and a long lifetime. Retrofit installations are possible.
The Heye rotor mechanism is mounted at the forehearth/feeder channel. By a rotating movement of the toothed ring, three paddles provide a stirring movement in the glass melt and thereby, keep it homogenous. Unlike traditional designs that employ rotating tubes, this innovative mechanism guarantees very high thermal homogeneity. The movement generated is deflected at the bevel wheel by 90° (from horizontal to radial), so that the sprocket executes a rotating movement. The servo motor motion is controlled by Heye Simotion® Servodrive, based on the future-proof multi axis Simotion® drive system from Siemens. Excellent reliability of electronic components in combination with the application of a compact servo motor with robust resolver guarantees reliable, non-stop operation.
The rotor mechanism’s drive is torque-controlled and if blockages occur, the system stops. Proven benefits of the rotor mechanism include good thermal homogeneity, high weight consistency, variable speeds, the ability to change the direction of rotation, the uniform rotation of rotor segments, height adjustment and complete housing of mechanical components.
