Your Key to Top Productivity and a Better Bottom Line
The hallmark of Global Glass is Batch Master 3, an integrated batch control system designed and manufactured to provide continuous uptime.
The BM3 System was originally developed to operate effectively in the rugged industrial glass manufacturing environment. Global Glass has refined and updated the system to meet increased regulatory requirements to ensure product quality. With the BM3, every phase of production can be precisely recorded and documented, from raw output to the final product.
With systems available for every furnace filling configuration and batch charger design, BM3 offers multiple levels of control, from ‘hands free’ to operator-initiated manual operation. By providing total integrated control in a single enclosure, BM3 allows manufacturers to increase efficiency and effectiveness while collecting production records required to maintain regulatory compliance.
The system is fitted to operate seamlessly with other Global Glass components, and in the event of loss of communications, provides automatic backup control redundancy to the master control system to which it is normally slaved.
