The Forming Process

Container forming is the heart of the glass container process, where the gob is manipulated and pressed or blown into its final form. Different techniques are used to make different types of containers. Both processes comprise a blank side, where the gob is formed into a partially completed form known as a parison, and the blow side where the final shape is achieved.

Bucher Emhart Glass machines have features for optimum handling and forming to ensure consistent quality and uniformity whether a single gob machine running slow volumes to quad gob high speed production.
