Forming Systems

Why Choose Quantum For Your Forming System?

TWT© Design
The patented Tube Within a Tube concept remains the best delivery
system for Cooling, Counter Blow, or Vacuum Service to the Forming Plunger Mechanism.
TWT© Design Safeguards against “tramp glass”

Universal Cylinder Concept
Interchangeable components for any Center Distance and Gob Configuration in any factory requirement
Alignment is a function of Design not operator skill

Unique Forming Systems
B&B, Press & Blow, NNPB and Advanced Blow and Blow Forming Systems have been designed for Trouble Free Operation
Minimized mechanical problems allow greater attention to the rest of the Forming Process
All Quantum Cartridges are Internally Lubricated for long life

Total Forming Analysis – TFA™

Maximum Return on Investment
Quantum Components are made with Alloyed tool steels, proprietary heat treatment, and unique coating surface infusion techniques
Once produced basic components have an indefinite life
Quantum units supplied in 1980 are still running in state of the art machines today

Maximum Production Flexibilty
The Quantum System can be reconfigured for different center distances and gob configurations.
As market demands require, The Quantum Forming System is ready to adapt at minimal investment.

Product category: Aids for the forming of hollow glass


Using the Cylinder Performance Monitoring System (CPMS®) feature of the TWT® allows the operator to see inside the initial forming cycle of the container manufacturing process. Timing commands, gob delivery, air pressures, linear movement, and exhaust temperatures are all items that the forming department needs to control and are easily monitored by the CPMS®. The system allows the operator to see what is going right or wrong – instantly. This applies to both NNPB processing and production in conventional Blow & Blow or Advanced Blow & Blow.

The TFA™ can be used to:

Control gob weight through tube height on needled control
Reduce MDT (Machine Dead Time) to safely improve production parameters.
Improve container quality by better process monitoring and control.
Identify problems in the forming of the parison.
Increase the speed and percentage of pack in any forming process, Press & Blow or Blow & Blow.

Plunger Mechanisms

With the Tube-Within-a-Tube (TWT®) concept, the fixed tube (in the end cap) and the moveable tube (inside the piston rod) move telescopically inside each other. The air path precisely and efficiently delivers cooling or counter blow air to the forming process.

The many benefits of  the Quantum Plunger Mechanism include:

Dual vented piston locks for positive process changing
High temperature seals and bearings with cartridge design
Dual action seals for pressure & vacuum processing
Each cylinder has its own exhaust: not shared as in the OEM style
19mm TWT® design for maximum air flow
Piston rods available for all mould designs
Fully protected electronic connection for CPMS®
Positioner lubrication for NNPB and B&B
Operational alignment is insured by design, not installation.
The Quantum TWT® Individual Cylinder allows complete interchangeability and standardization throughout all the IS Machines.

Quantum plunger mechanisms have been installed in machines from major OEMs and fit in any I.S. machine maker configuration.

Forming Processes

The designs for B&B, Press & Blow, NNPB, and Advanced Blow & Blow have been developed to minimize mechanical problems in the glass forming process and provide trouble free operation.

This allows production advances in quality, strength, and speed.

By understanding the day to day problems in the hot end part of the process, Quantum reduces the problems allowing greater attention to the rest of the forming process.

All of our positioners and cartridges are internally lubricated for long life and trouble free operation.
