  1. 10X LED illuminated hand-held MAGNIFIER with Measuring Scale
    US$35.00


    This handheld magnifier constructed from aluminium alloy features glass optics with super-sharp clarity. It provides 10 dioptre magnification, and includes a graduated scale (in metric and imperial) within the viewer to allow accurate measurements of viewed objects. Three LEDs provide excellent illumination of the object being viewed.

    Great for lab, science, education and engineering applications. Perfect for inspecting defects in bottles and jars, and for inspecting laser-engraved manufacturing-codes on the sidewalls of bottles (now becoming a common method of coding bottles/jars by many major glass manufacturers – however difficult to discern with the naked eye). This device will make reading codes a breeze! Learn More

    SUMMARY OF OPERATIONS REPORT

    The above Glass Manufacturing Facility has been AUDITED by GLASSPLANT CONFIDENTIAL


    Audited plants have been visited by GPC Representatives (some multiple times), and a comprehensive audit of their manufacturing facilities has been undertaken. Audits cover in detail both ‘Hot-End’ and ‘Cold-End’ operation, and assess the ability of the plant to manufacture ware to Western quality standards.

    Where such audits have been undertaken, GPC has produced a “Summary of Operations” report that summarises critical information from the original Audit. It also includes a ‘List of Additional Quality Requirements’ that will need to be in place at the Plant when manufacturing ware for western customers. These additional quality requirements are provided in a separate section at the end of the Summary Report, so that they can be easily copied and provided to the Glass-Plant to form part of any manufacturing contract........

  8. Specifications - Part 1
    MEMBER ONLY ACCESS

    View Membership Plans Here


    Part-1 of the ‘Specifications for Bottles & Jars’ series covers the most common aspects of container-quality, and those often associated with quality issues at the filling-plants of food & beverage manufacturers.

    ‘Thin-glass’, ‘leaning-bottles, ‘out-of-round’ containers, ‘angled’ and ‘non-flat’ finishes! Common ailments that affect the ability of the filling-plant to successfully fill their bottles and jars.

    Make sure that these common defects are kept under control when your bottles & jars are being manufactured. Provide this document to your glass-manufacturer as the minimum required standards for the 5 quality parameters covered.... Learn More
  9. Specifications - Part 2
    MEMBER ONLY ACCESS

    View Membership Plans Here


    Part-2 of the ‘Specifications for Bottles & Jars’ series provides the glass-manufacturing requirements for five important aspects of container quality. These requirements are important as they will ensure glass vessels are able to withstand a range of stresses such as those likely to be encountered on most food and beverage filling-lines.

    To successfully travel the distance from the depalletiser to the carton-packer, most glass containers will have to withstand stresses such as ‘impact’, ‘thermal-shock’, and (in many cases) ‘internal-pressure’. The vessels will also require a certain degree of ‘panel-straightness’, and will need to be monitored for ‘capacity’ to reduce the potential for over-filling or under-filling.

    It is important that these quality requirements are closely monitored by your glass manufacturer. Ensure they have a copy of this document so that they are fully aware of the standards required when manufacturing your glass vessels....... Learn More

Procedures have been included to ensure the glass-manufacturing plant regularly monitors the glass containers for these subtle defects, to ensure they do not find their way into the final pallets.

    A range of other standard tests and their required specifications have also been included to ensure the quality of the melted glass exiting the furnace is of sufficient standard to manufacture bottles and jars for Western customers. Areas covered include ‘Seed’ ; ‘Blister’ ; ‘Stone’ ; ‘Density ‘and ‘Cord’.

    Other aspects of container quality are included in the ‘Miscellaneous Testing’ section of this specifications document. These include the important requirements for correctly applied surface treatment (both Hot-End and Cold-End).... Learn More

  13. TECHNICAL BULLETIN  #1803

    DEFECT: FLANGED-FINISHES (on 'twist-off' & 'screw-cap' bottles)

    This Bulletin provides detailed information on the ‘critical’ defect referred to as ‘Flanged Finish’. The defect comprises a small horizontal protrusion of glass along the outer sealing-surface, most commonly affecting ‘narrow-neck’ beer and beverage bottles. The extent to which the small ‘fin’ or flange of glass protrudes outward varies from bottle-to-bottle, so to is the extent to which it travels around the circumference of the sealing-surface. Regardless of size, the flange has a propensity to fracture when closures are removed from the bottles by consumers.

    Since the 1990’s, this unforgiving ‘critical’ defect has subtly risen through the ranks of glass-manufacturing defects to become one of the most prominent in terms of its involvement in major product recalls world-wide...... Learn More

    SCREW-CAP WINE BOTTLES (Critical Dimensions on the 30 x 60 BVS Finish)

    The popularity of the 30 x 60 BVS screw-cap finish on wine bottles has dramatically increased since the 1990’s, and now many mainstream red and white wines are filled into these ‘consumer-friendly’ bottles. Despite the many years the finish has been produced, capping issues still arise in many filling-plants. These issues can be attributed to both the ‘closure’ and the ‘bottle’ (or a combination of both). One common complaint raised by wine-fillers is the propensity of the whole closure (both ‘cap’ and ‘capsule’) to be removed from the bottles when opened by consumers. This issue has created much debate over the years, with wine-fillers, closure-manufacturers, and bottle-manufacturers all standing their ground when the ‘finger-of-blame’ is pointed.

    This Bulletin focuses on the requirements of the glass-manufacturer, highlighting the levels of accuracy required for a range of major dimensions which...... Learn More
