The hot end and cold end processes - 23 March 2019

The mould reamer is one of the most useful tools we supply. It's appropriate for a wide range of mechanical operations. With a specialised utensil, you can repair any faulty elements you find with your moulds. People are free to use the reamers by hand as well as part of a machine. Some custom applications still use traditional blow moulding and glass-blowing techniques to create glass bottles. However, most other manufacturers now rely on automated set ups. There are two important parts to this. They are the hot end process and cold end process. We are going to discuss how they work. The hot end process Bottle production generally takes place at a glass container factory and has numerous stages. The hot end processes act as the first of these. Usually, they utilise huge levels of pressure to generate and shape the containers.  Firstly, you use a furnace in order to create the molten glass. This is fed to the furnace as glass feed stock. Soda-lime glass is used for...

The process used to form glass containers - 10 March 2019

First-rate neckring profile gauges are our speciality. Tools that match your every requirement are difficult to come by. However, we put a great deal of time and effort into our products to ensure that they're suitable for the job. Trust us when we say that you won't find superior solutions anywhere else. How are glass bottles made? Manufacturers form glass containers using a specific process. To begin with, they heat the ingredients for the glass until they melt. Next a gob of the melted glass forms into a parison in a dedicated mould. They then move the parison to a blow or finishing mould. It is here where the bottle gets its final shape. Mass production It is possible to produce these containers in large batches. This normally occurs in an IS glass forming apparatus. It has several sets of moulds fed by a sole source of molten glass. You run the sections in synchronism in a relative phase relationship. This allows the sections to obtain gobs of molten glass in a...

The importance of identifying and rectifying mould flaws - 26 February 2019

As experts in the glass container industry, we're familiar with the tools companies use. Standard reamers are useful for performing various mechanical operations. However, they aren't really suitable for moulds. A mould reamer on the other hand is different. It's something people use specifically for mould repair projects.

We've spent numerous years supplying customers with the greatest blank mould gauges available. This is something we couldn't have accomplished without our outstanding knowledge. Whenever clients approach us, we do whatever is necessary to meet their specifications. A glass bottle's body can have a myriad of different imperfections or features.

These include sagging spots, slumps, straw lines, and stretch marks. People also consider whittle marks and bubbles to be defects. Despite not being deliberate, they don't always undermine the bottle's use.  The flaw we'll be looking more closely at here is straw lines or marks. What do these lines look like? These are hair fine wavy lines. They appear on the surface of the glass body, either in patterns or alone. Straw lines are physically etched...
