Take-out Holders and Inserts
Take-out inserts are the first parts to contact the newly formed hot glass containers after the final blowing stage in the finishing mould. At this point, the glass is still very hot and easily damaged. A pair of inserts closes around the neck of each container, lifting them out of the mould and transferring them to the deadplate where the base of each container is cooled by air jets prior to being set down. The pick-up profile and finish of the inserts are custom designed to suit each particular container, having four main categories: crown, thread, underthread and bead.
Pyrotek's take-out holders and inserts are specially designed to fit each application with a range of insert materials available with global service and support. Materials commonly used include graphite, bronze, carbon-carbon and a DuPont™ Vespel® graphite composite.
