Production Line Audit

Professional skiller from UPC will come to Audit every production line before running the mass production for each products, make sure it is to meet the standard for packaging, below is the process of production by Audit:

1. Raw materials
Silica sand, Soda ash, limestone, and cullet (crushed glass), others
2. Batch House
Weighing and mixing of raw materials, and transport to the hopper at the melting furnace
3. Melting
Melting of mixed raw materials about 1,550 c° in the melting furnace
4. Feeding
Feeding of glass gob at optimum temperature suitable to bottle weight and shape is fed into a glass bottle-forming machine via the feeder
5. Forming
Forming of bottle by the glass bottle-forming machine for designed bottle shape
6. Annealing
Annealing of bottles as they leave the glass bottle-forming machine
7.Coating
After Annealing, cool end coating make bottle more stronger

Test Method
5 1 Specification
511   Capacity
Use a weighing apparatus whose sensitivity is 1g to weigh empty bottles. Then pour in water of indoor temperature and weigh again. Minus the former from the latter value and convert the unit to ml (1g weight of water is close to 1ml).
512       Sizes
5121    Body OD
Measure the middle part of body with a slide caliper through any angles of the same level (quantitative detection), then calculate the body OD by averaging the max. and min. value.
5122    Bottle Height
Measure with a height gage (quantitative detection) or with a limit gauge (qualitative detection).
512Bottle head height (top of mouth), measure with a height gauge or slide caliper.
5124    Mouth ODScrew OD
Measure with a slide caliper (quantitative detection) or with a limit gauge (qualitative detection).
5125    Mouth (Neck) ID
Measure with a special inserting gauge or caliper. The insertion depth of bottle ID gauge should be no less than the length of inner stopper or the insertion depth of filling tube.
5126    Thickness of The Wall and Bottom
Measure with thickness gauge or cut the bottle in two and measure with slide caliper.
5127    Bottom Thickness Proportion of One Bottle
Use a measuring apparatus to find the proportion of the thickest and the thinnest parts of one bottle bottom.
5128    Deviation of Vertical Axis
In accordance with GB8452-1987.
52    Appearance Quality
521   Body Ovality
Measure with a slide caliper (quantitative detection) or with a limit gauge (qualitative detection).
522     Unevenness of Mouth Surface
Measure with a plug gauge (qualitative detection) or with a dial gauge (stationary detection).
523      Parallelism Measuring of Mouth and Bottom Surface
Measure with a height caliper; divide the minimum value from the maximum value and you’ll get the parallelism.
524       Other Appearance Items
Visually estimate, or use a 10× scale magnifying glass to measure if necessary.
53             Physical and Chemical Performance
531         Inner Pressure Resistance
In accordance with GB/T4546-1998
532         Thermal Shock Resistance
In accordance with  GB/T4547-1991.

b) When formally put into production, if any changes are implemented on structure, material or craftsmanship and may affect product performance;
c) Manufacturing of the product has been suspended for over 3 months whatever the reasons are and plan to be restored;
d) Result of factory inspection differs much from that of last type inspection;
e) When state quality supervision bureau suggests to do type inspection.
6.4.3 Sampling Scheme:In accordance with GB2829-1987. Adopt level I single sampling scheme. Inspection items and rejection quality level refer to table 6.
