Abstract

A special problem in the development of hollow glass machines was presented by the delivery of glass to the machine. Manual feeding by gathering iron can be considered only for small production. It was soon recognized that the development of a productive hollow glass machine was closely associated with that of an effective feeding system. Owens solved the problem by means of the suction principle in connection with the use of the revolving pot. The development of the glass feeder which frees the production machine proper from the task of taking the glass from the tank was a parallel development. In this way the machine became better adapted to its proper mission, the forming of glass into the desired object.
