A plastic Belgian-style beer glass.
We have designed a plastic glass for the catering industry, based on a glass model submitted by the customer.
An essential requirement was that the unique shape had to be recognisable in the new design. We have optimised the thickness of wall and taken away the undercuts. The capacity of the glass is made to exactly 0.25 l and a solution has been created to drain away the washing water at the bottom to prevent bacterial growth. We suggested the type of hotrunner. Thanks to that choice, the mould was ready for production from the start, the machine pressure could be reduced by about 30% and the production time was a lot shorter. We provided a great deal of consultation during this project, much to the satisfaction of all parties involved.
Activities carried out:
– making STL examples
– mould construction
