Gob (Container / Speciality / Tableware)

The gob is a selected amount of hot glass delivered to the forming process from the furnace, passing through the forehearth. The gob’s temperature will directly affect its viscosity, so it is important to keep this at the correct level at all times to ensure consistent product quality.

By accurately measuring the gob temperature, it is possible to calculate the weight of the gob. This value is closely related to its viscosity, so precise monitoring can provide a reliable indicator of product quality.

Temperature monitoring of the gob ensures a consistent viscosity of the product as it enters the moulding stage. This means that the quality of the glass is constant, reducing waste and increasing process efficiency.
