Our products

Product category: Moulds for glass production


Utilizing spinning moulds produced by Merkad, using 1.2787 stainless steel with ESR and double forging, will provide advantages of having unique, beautiful, high-lustre glass items.

It is possible to use Merkad’s spinning moulds at the maximum rotation capacity of machines, with the help of cooling profiles designed by Merkad’s Engineering Department.

Regardless of how hard and how complicated glass designs are, all possible problems that
could effect decorations are eliminated during design. After final confirmation, the decorations are applied to the moulds.

Merkad also manufactures high precision “Tulip Moulds” and it’s equipment e.g. Plungers, Ring and Bottom Plates for Press machines.  Depending on engraving details and complexity,  “Tulip Moulds” can be manufactured as of 2-3 or 4 parts.
After finishing computer aided design process, product and mould splitting stages are controlled by a special simulation program.

Merkad uses high quality stainless steel materials produced with “ESR” (Electro Slag Remelting ) +  “Double forging” processes at 34-37 HRc hardness as a main material for “Tulip Moulds”, which is especially developed for glass mold production.

Moulds for press process Merkad provides press mould equipment for press machines, including; Moulds, Blank Holders and Inserts, Plungers, Plunger Rings, Bottom Plates, and so on. The company is capable of manufacturing complex moulds requiring extensive engineering and precision machining.Merkad uses Hot Work Tool Steel and stainless steel materials with the ESR process, especially developed for glass mould production, and manufactured using the double forging process at 30-32 HRc hardness. This type of material does not need any extra hardening or chromium coating.

Therefore, Merkad's customers have the advantage of working with mould equipment that has a longer lifespan than its competitors and without the need of any extra processing during glass production.

Moulds for stemware lines

Merkad's stem mould equipment, which uses 1.2782 stainless steel with Double Forging and ESR process, for stemware lines includes: Stem Moulds, Plunger Rings, Plungers, Bottom Plates, Working Table Rings (3-part Working Tables). The moulds are prepared in two or three pieces, depending on the shape of the glassware. The traces on the surface of glassware caused by mould split line are minimized.Even in very complex stem figures, especially with irregular joint contour, Merkad designers can provide perfect joint sections for stems and their bowlsby using special software programs.

Moulds for blow process

Blow mould equipment for Blow Machines includes: Block Moulds, Inserts, Plungers, Guide Rings, Neck Rings (4-part), Blow Moulds, Bottom Plates, Vacuum Heads, Graphite Holders, etc.

With these kinds of mould equipment, parison designing knowledge gains great importance. Merkad engineers simulate the movement of the parison under different production circumstances with the help of a special software program. This program enables the company to foresee any kind of problem, which may occur during the blow glass production.

Determining where to position the exhaust holes on a blow mould requires further experience.Wellpositioned exhaust holes on a blow mould make the lines of a design clearer and more apparent in a glass product.

If a complete blow mould set is provided by Merkad, the company is able to provide the following information to the customer:

Calculation of a parison which they need to work with; Allowance of parison hanging, after pressing process; and Weight of the final glass item, after crack-off or burn-off.
