Numerous things can go wrong during the production of a glass container. Blank and blow mould seams for instance are prime examples of what can go awry whilst the manufacturing process takes place. Seams, which are typically large in size, extend from the shoulder and to the container’s bottom section. Blank seams have a habit of veering off from the mould seam. Problems with the mould machinery tend to be some of the causes of these issues; you need to be certain that everything is in proper working order before beginning your operations to avoid them.
