Do you know how glass factory mold repair workshop works?

Today we took our seasoning manufacturer customer from Malaysia Nick to visit the glass bottle mold repair workshop of Newray Glass Factory.

The purpose of the mold repair workshop in the glass bottle factory is mainly to maintain and repair glass bottle molds. In the production process of glass bottles, the mold is the key tool to form the specific shape of the glass bottle. Since high temperatures and continuous use during the production process can cause mold wear or damage, regular inspections, maintenance, and repairs are required to ensure the quality of glass bottles and the continuity of production.

Mold repair shop staff are typically responsible for the following tasks:

  • Check the mold: Check the mold regularly for wear and damage.
  • Clean the mold: Remove glass residue and other contaminants from the mold.
  • Repair molds: Perform repair work such as welding, grinding and polishing on worn or damaged molds.
  • Replace mold parts: Replace mold parts that cannot be repaired.
  • Adjust the mold: Adjust the size and shape of the mold according to production needs.

The mold repair shop is crucial to maintaining high efficiency and high quality in glass bottle production. We saw online that workers were repairing and polishing the molds for condiment bottles and beverage bottles that were about to be produced on the machine.

After a brief understanding of the processes that different workers in the mold repair workshop are responsible for, it is necessary to introduce the functions of each component of the most important mold for glass bottles to customers.

The components of glass bottle molds and their respective uses are as follows:

  • Preliminary mold: A mold used to initially shape the shape of the glass bottle to be produced.
  • Mold: The main mold used to finalize the shape of the glass bottle.
  • Funnel: used in the process before the glass solution falls from the automatic distributor into the preliminary mold.
  • Bulk head: an accessory that cooperates with the preliminary mold to complete preliminary processing and forming.
  • Mouth mold: used for bottle mouth shaping, and also a tool for transferring glass bottles from the preliminary mold to the final mold.
  • Inflating head: After the glass product is initially formed, it is used to press the glass solution through an air compressor to finalize the shape.
  • Punch and core: The punch is used to shape the mouth of large-mouth bottles and affects the inner diameter of the bottle mouth; the core is used to affect the inner diameter of the mouth of small-mouth bottles.

These components work together to ensure that the glass bottles are manufactured precisely to the predetermined shape and size.

In the production process of glass bottles, the quality of the mold directly affects the quality of the final product, so the design and manufacturing of the mold is very critical. This is why there are molds on the market that cost hundreds of dollars, and there are also molds that cost thousands of dollars.

In order to save costs, some small factories use inferior materials, which will affect the smoothness and roundness of the glass bottles produced. Therefore, when choosing a supplier of glass bottles, customers must not be cheap.
