Category Management Studies

Loading molten glass into moulds with an exact funnel procedure. After that, the baffle starts the settle blow process, allowing compressed air to enter the mould and produce the neck and container finish. A plunger travels into the finish to tighten the glass against the mould in the counterblow process, creating the parison. The neck ring keeps the glass container in place when the mould expands, allowing it to be inverted for the blow mould process. A reheat stage ensures that the parison temperature matches the interior glass temperature, resulting in smoothing and uniform distribution of the glass to avoid breaking. The last blow is used to equally tighten the glass against the blow mould to finish the form. Remove the new glass bottle from the mould and place it on a cooling plate. The glass bottle is then carried by conveyor from the cooling plate to be packaged and ready for delivery.
