The Gob Forming Simulator visualizes in a virtual 3D environment the influence of adjusting the feeder control parameters, such as: refractory tube & plunger height, plunger stroke & differential on the gob shape. Simulate and show in a class room the formation of the glass stream into a gob.
Glassmakers know how important it is to have the “perfect gob”, without it no “perfect” container can be made. There are many different factors that influence the gob shaping and making the wrong adjustment can stop the machine. What happens to the glass level inside the tube, when the tube height is changed? Look inside the refractory spout and tube to see how the glass is responding to the different set-up parameters. This simulator is the perfect training tool to explain how a gob is made. The time scaling function allows to watch the gob shaping process at a set machine speed in slow motion – this is not possible to do on the production floor. WATCH THE VIDEO FOR MORE INFORMATION
