4 Birth of a Bottle

Birth of a Bottle

Posted on February 6, 2013 by team

Right now we are going to the large factory making bottles in Novosibirsk, Russia.

The factory started its work in 1954 as a maker of optoelectronic devices, cathode-ray tubes for oscillography and television picture tubes. In 1994 the mass production of TV equipment was over in Russia and the factory was repurposed to make glass jars.

Today the factory “Ekran” has a leading position among manufacturers of glass jars on the territory from the Urals to the Russian Far East.

They make bottles for alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages, cans for juice, sauce and other products with capacity from 0,25 litres to 3 litres; bottles from brown glass.

This is a glass furnace.

    Why aren’t there any comments on this page? These photos are awesome!
    Seriously, being able to see the metamorphis of glass is just cool, especially when it’s interesting to see how the machines were designed to do their job.

    excellent examples of automated process, not to mention a good place for the unlucky to lose a limb!

    Wow, that’s a LOT of glass production for just one factory.

    Really nice series of photos. So the seam on beer bottles is from the mold opening. I had previously thought that bottles are made from two halves.
