BDF – Forming Delivery

Historically, BDF Industries‘ core business is the glass container forming product line is. During 1956 BDF Industries produced the first 4 section IS Machine entirely manufactured in Europe and thanks to this long time knowledge is able to provide a wide range of machines with a high level of production flexibility to meet customers’ requirements.
BDF Industries can offer a complete range of IS machines including gob forming and delivery, ware handling, container and variable equipment. The glass forming machineries are fully designed and assembled in house in Italy at BDF Industries, a company with relevant knowledge of production process with the most important glass manufacturers in the world.

BDF servo parallel shear
Parallel shear motion guarantees a simultaneous cut for each gob entry to a modular and independent gob guide system. The easy maintenance system allows a reduced spare parts inventory, improved job change downtime and a perfect constant cutting time at all machine speeds. Additionally, there is an easy cam customization.

BDF “Multidrive” servo gob distributor
Electronic independent position control for each scoop, with the possibility to independently align each scoop and trough position. Great improvement of gobs delivery for high production machines with multi-gob delivery equipment provided with high rigidity and low inertia for high performances.

BDF “Constant Angle” delivery system
The 30° constant trough angle with new deflector profile which is longer on the trough side to guarantee higher gob speeds and shorter contact time between gob and trough. This means a softer centrifugal force variation and less deformation of the gob with greatly decreased impact force between gob and trough.
