German automation solution suppliers futronic has received a second order from Indonesian container glass manufacturer PT Mulia Glass to retrofit one of its production lines.

In 2019, futronic received an order from PT Mulia Glass to modernise one of the production lines at a plant south-east of capital city Jakarta.

The project specifically concerned Line 4, comprised of a glass moulding machine and a welding machine for making glass blocks. Futronic drafted new circuit diagrams and adapted the software.

Due to this success, a follow-up order was announced immediately afterwards, which came in October, with futronic asked by Mulia Glass to retrofit another of its lines.

This newest project entailed a revamp of Line 3.2, which apart from a few minor details is almost identical to Line 4.

Futronic’s technicians will be required to exchange controls, drives and wiring and there will also be a new human-machine interface (HMI), customised in part.

The modernised plant will go live in 2022 dependent on any problems caused by the Covid-19 outbreak.
