XMIS - SQL Based Information System - an add-on to XPAR Vision’s solutions, assists container glass manufacturers to improve their understanding of the forming process and thereby improves their product quality and increases their glass forming capabilities.

This innovative solution supports all XPAR Vision's solutions, including the IR-D, the IGC, the Gob Assist and the BTC.

XMIS operating principle

When XPAR Vision's Hot End solutions are implemented at the production line, enormous amounts of information are gathered about the forming process and presented to the user. Without XMIS installed in the plant this information would be stored for a short duration before being discarded and therefore lost for further analysis and future reference.

XMIS allows all process data to be stored on a centralized server for longer periods of time. It also provides a web-based user interface to retrieve these data in a intuitive way by generating pre-defined reports.

XMIS enables the user to analyze for critical defects, perform process improvements and perform benchmarking between e.g. lines, sections and cavities. It also provides access to historical data, for traceability in case of customer reclamations. On top of this, XMIS includes a mail service which can deliver standardized Hot End reports on a daily basis. This makes XMIS an indispensable tool to better understand the production process and improve on both process and product quality.

Combined with other XPAR solutions, XPAR Vision provides real-time process information of the Hot End forming process, from the cutting of the gob, until glass containers passing the IR-D system on their way to enter the annealing lehr.
