Automated mould coating for premium glass products

A standard mould coating technology using oil can be accident prone and dangerous. The manual intervention required to control and run the process also makes it very inefficient. The influx of PET as replacement for glass bottles has also meant that glass manufacturers are keen to reduce production cost.

BOC’s CARBOFLAM® technology is a highly automated and reliable mould coating technology that uses the properties of industrial gas to coat a layer of carbon on to the glass product. The output is consistent, resulting in increased yield and reduced defects. The automated process reduces manual intervention and accidents.
