Luben Glass: Mould Polishing - the 'revolution' has begun

2010-01-01 | Mould technology

When we think about container glass, we often do not consider a very important part of the process – the moulds. Moulds not only have to be manufactured, but also need to be regularly cleaned and polished to guarantee the best quality and quantity of products made. Polishing the moulds, however, can also cause problems in that it often removes or deteriorates the decorative items on the same moulds. Therefore, a method of polishing that eliminates this possibility is most welcome!

Luben Glass: Mould Polishing - the 'revolution' has begun
In these last two years, during the peak of the global economic crisis, Luben Glass and AAM, partners in the Mould Saving project (see article in Glass Machinery Plants & Accessories 06/09), started up what can be defined as a “revolution in the system of polishing moulds for the glass industry”.

CUBOLUX
Ever more motivated by the aim of offering clients solutions with important benefits and economic savings in mould maintenance, Luben Glass has concentrated its efforts on a new machine - Cubolux 3.0 - for the nondestructive polishing of moulds. Cubolux is a machine and a patented polishing system that has the main advantage of not ruining the moulds, while maintaining their production capacity at the same time. The machine is made up of an external protective structure and a central part with a vibrating plate on which the moulds are positioned. This innovative transmission system of vibrations is called ‘vibralux’ and enables to eliminate noise, while optimizing the frequency transmission of the vibrations on the moulds to be treated.

Working principles
Once the machine has been installed (a fast and very simple operation) the moulds to be polished (already washed, possibly by ultrasound technology) must be placed in the centring position on the base plate. The operator then positions the tank with polishing chips above the mould and, by means of valves, first fills the cavities of the moulds, then carries out the correct setting of the spouts for the introduction of ...
