Novaxion and Bucher Emhart Glass signed a partnership agreement.

The pair will work together on the newly developed FlexRobot integrated into the Machine Blank Panel and connected smartly into the FlexIS Control System.

The hanging FlexRobot is available as an option for the Bucher Emhart Glass forming machines, and exclusively from Bucher Emhart Glass.

The lean machine incorporation is available as a straightforward option for a new machine, or as a field upgrade for an installed machine.

Emhart said there there are multiple benefits for the glass plants, which include:

- Reduced operator interventions resulting in higher safety levels.
- Reduced/eliminated rejects when swabbing moulds.
- Precise and consistent swabbing for a better controlled process, increasing the production quality and increasing the mould life with minimal section contamination.
- Reduced swab liquid.
