The Application requires you to select one of the plans
This application provides detailed information about possible forming defects in glass bottles and jars. Including image, description, detection and effect. The App contains information about the source of defects in glass containers (cause and prevention, split into different forming processes), which is available with the PLUS plan.
The content has been put together by glass experts from around the world, based on experience and scientific explanations. In this App defects can be sorted by forming process, category (defect type), classification (Critical, Major and Minor), and container parts using smart filters.
The features of the application include the following:
Forming defect image
More than 1200 images are shown in the gallery, these images were specially created using 3D-technology to provide clear defect identification. With this the user can find a particular defect without the knowledge of the correct glass defect name.
Glass defect name
Each defect has a unique name. Unification of names eliminates duplication and sets a single standard for the glass container industry. The unique defect name has been complimented by the collection of alternative names (dialects) from different glass plants and people around the world.
The description of a defect makes it very clear what kind of defect it is, and it helps during discussion to define the cause of the defect. Especially useful when determine the defect classification (Critical, Major and Minor).
Defect detection in bottles and jars
To quickly learn how to detect a defect - 6 categories are provided. An explanation has been given for each defect of how to find it in a glass container. This is a very useful guide, especially for newcomers in the glass container industry and for companies that use glass containers as packaging material (fillers and brand owners).
Glass defect effect
For everyone working with glass, no matter if manufacturer or filler it is important to understand the effect a defect has on the inspection, packaging, filling lines and finally the end user. The defects can be filtered according to the defect classifications (Critical, Major and Minor).
Defect cause (source)
The defect source (cause) is explained for all listed defects within this application. Once the cause of a defect has been understood the fixing and elimination become easier and faster to apply. This part is very important for IS machine operators and production specialists.
Defect prevention (remedies and correction)
This application talks about preventions rather than remedies. The defect prevention has been categorised into subsections such as; Glass, Set-up, Operation, Machine equipment, and Mould equipment, for easier navigation and focus of the production and engineering team.
Who should use this application?
This web-based application is for glass manufacturers, brand owners, fillers, and production specialist who want access to the information from anywhere anytime.
APEGG offer this application with two different plans and the content is updated once per year to keep the information alive and up to date.
This plan is for people who work in quality assurance and glass laboratory, as well as for students that want to learn about glass container forming defects. Companies (fillers, brand owners) that use glass as packaging material will find this App useful when communicating with glass container manufacturers.
The plan is specifically for people that work with the correction of glass container defects, such as IS forming machine operators and production specialists. For all common glass defects the cause and prevention information has been split into the three most used forming processes (BB, NNPB and PB).
