Production Line Audit

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
8. Inspection
A bottle is strictly checked on Automatic inspection machine and visually inspect each bottle to confirm quality by skilled technicans
