Production & Completion

Bare glass machine operator

The force behind the glassmaking
The “bare glass” machine operator has direct contact with bottle production. They ensure that the IS machine (glass production machine) operates correctly and is well maintained, check the fall of the glass gob during fusion into the mold, regularly grease the molds, and periodically sample the bottles to check their compliance with the specifications sheet (size, quality, etc.). They are the force behind the glassmaking.
Knowledge and experience
The operator plays a fundamental role in the production quality chain as they are the first to observe the correct formation of the bottle. The highest level of production quality depends on their involvement and skills. This position requires expertise and experience combining technical knowledge of the machine and glassmaking defects.

Founder

Guaranteeing the Saverglass recipe
The purity of Saverglass glass is ensured firstly during the mix of raw materials. Within the component-fusion department, the founder is the person who ensures the success of Saverglass' recipe. Ensuring the quality of the glass produced is the first step in Saverglass’ industrial excellence process.
Oven operator
Once the mixture is placed in the oven, the founder checks the fusion of the materials. This stage requires true glassmaking know-how. Operating an oven involves controlling the condition of the glass melt, the effect of the flame and the refractories, and continually adjusting all the fusion parameters: temperature, hygrometry, etc.
