Gob Distributor and Delivery System
The gob distributor and delivery system on an IS machine receives the gobs after the shear cut, for delivery to the individual sections of the machine. The gob distributor moves the scoops with a high speed and accuracy to the entrance of the troughs in accordance with the firing order. The motion and the resulting dwell time of the scoops are important for a smooth transition of the gobs into the troughs. The Bucher Emhart Glass gob distributor has proven to be a very reliable and low maintenance mechanism. The reject system with both gob interceptor and center reject chute increases the safe operation of the machine.
