Title: PREFORMING STATION FOR AN IS (INDIVIDUAL SECTION) GLASS PRODUCTION MACHINE
Abstract:
A preforming station for an IS glass production machine is disclosed, having at least one preform (1), comprising a preform base (2) and a mouth part (3), as well as a preform holder (4) with preform holder arms (4a, 4b). In order to be able to produce comparatively flat glass articles (10) of high quality, the invention proposes that the preform base (2) and the mouth part (3) can be brought into contact with one another at their mutually facing edges (5, 6), so that they form the preform (1) without preform halves, and that the preform base (2) and the mouth part (3) can be fixed to one another by means of the preform holder arms (4a, 4b) during a pressing process.
