The Process Pilot closed-loop blow molding control software from AGR International, Butler, Pa., is a real-time process management program that works in conjunction with the company’s PETWall Profi ler system to automatePET bottle production. The program continuously monitors data on bottle wall-thickness distribution provided by PETWall Profiler measurement system and creates a baseline relationship between wall thickness and key machine settings for a given job. Sophisticated algorithms analyze tiny changes in material distribution. Based on these changes, the program proactively adjusts machine settings to maintain the proper thickness distribution.
