Production Stefan S. From the gob to the bottle – even the best machines need proper settings, don’t they, Stefan? "I have been working now for almost 5 years as a bottle maker in our Austrian site and still it remains a challenge to me to start an IS machine after a job change to a new item. Our fully automatic IS machines produce more than 500 glass bottles per minute. It depends on the correct, individual machine settings whether or not our glass products can meet the high demands of the customers. This requires a lot of sensitivity, know-how, experience, patience and sometimes even a little luck, so that after a few seconds, a drop of liquid glass becomes a perfectly shaped bottle."
