Spikes and bent neck - possible defects when making glass containers
The top of the range blank mould gauges we supply play an important role in glass container manufacturing. We can fulfil many requirements to provide people with precisely what they need.
Glass bottles are reusable and great for preserving different goods. Even though they might appear simple, they represent the centuries of innovation that have taken place in manufacturing and production. A quality container is one which does its job by carrying the product without causing any issues for the user. This means that when making any glass products, they must be to excellent standards.
Some issues can occur when manufacturing glass containers. In a lot of cases, you can trace weaknesses in the glass to problems with the original mould.
One of the problems you can come across is spikes. This is a projection within the body of the container. The main cause tends to be flaws in the machinery set up. It is important that you make sure everything is working as it should be before operations begin.
You might also find yourself dealing with bent neck when making containers. This misalignment can have many causes but they all have steps you can try to prevent it. Sometimes, the mould runs too hot which pulls it to one side. This requires you to increase the cooling wind levels. On the other hand, it could be that the blow head isn't setting over the moulds as it should, so you need to adjust it.
