MOULDSHOP MAINTENANCE

For an IS machine to run properly, requires the molding components to be dimensional and physically in accordance with the Glass Mold Design specifications.

In the real world, nothing lasts forever and the same applies to all molding components. Based on this principle, the Mold Shop personnel are constantly required to assess and determine if the components are capable to be maintained in production.

Through the correlation of glass and the mold dimensions, as well as the use of good maintenance and organizational practices, the glass molds lifetime can be maximized, costs reduced and anticipation patterns can be achieved in order to reduce the probability of late acquisitions.

In Empakglass we embody the Glass Mold Shop Department as a Self-Sufficient Operational Unit, and when compared with an equivalent outsourced operation, must have a lower cost and therefore justify the existence of this Department.

Consequently, the financial management of this department, which has a very relevant weight percentage of the total specific cost of producing glass, must always be kept under scrutiny and also be a driving force for price reductions in mold acquisitions with the Glass Plant’s main mold suppliers.

Taking that into consideration, Empakglass’s Mold-shop Department provides to its partners a technical support that ranges from the installation project and layouts, passing to the everyday operation and also with a financial approach.

MOULD EQUIPMENT DESIGN

Today's competitive pressures require companies to take advantage of every tool at their disposal.
Process simulation is unquestionably instrumental in cost, quality and delivery improvements.

After the final container design approval, the use of FEA technology is fundamental to predict the container final glass wall thickness distribution, considering the correct parison design, production process, glass composition and IS machinery used in the container manufacture (delivering system, cooling system and machine timing).

EmpakGlass approach will deliver our customers a higher level starting point on a very early production stage. This will effectively reduce the amount of trials needed before the sampling approval for final production.
