When the flow of molten glass leaves the forehearth, the feeder shapes it into gobs. The electronic gob distributor takes the gobs and, together with the delivery system, delivers them to each section in accordance to an automatically calculated firing order.
Product category: Cutting technology for technical glass
The raw materials are fused in the furnace and go out through the working end as a viscous fluid called glass. The glass flowing along the forehearth is conditioned to obtain certain temperatures and physical characteristics so that IS machine can mould it.
