Gob Forming & Mold Top Plates
Dura Temp offers several products for the gob forming process of glass manufacturing, specifically gob guide funnels and gob deflectors. Both the funnels and deflectors are made from Protatherm® materials.
The gob guide funnels are made to individual customer specifications. Gob deflector plates (or gob interceptors) can be delivered ready to use or as blank sheets for end-user machining. Protatherm® materials provide superior machinability.
Dura Temp also offers Protatherm® mold top plates and protection plates. Mold top plate inserts can be supplied in any diameter and thickness (typically between 4 and 8mm), with a blank ID for machining to any size. Alternatively, we can work to customer-supplied bore profiles and supply the inserts ready to use. DT-80 material is available when reduced heat transfer from the mold is required. Stainless steel protection plates are available in a variety of diameters and bore sizes.
