The moulding method used in all production lines is the Blow-Blow method. . It allows for the production of elegant glassware items dedicated to the traditional market and the HoReCa industry. The use of Crystalline glass increases resistance to mechanical and chemical damage.

The Blow-Blow technology consists of the following production steps:

  • supplying the machine with glass
  • glass drop pressing before moulding
  • blowing the product (i.e. the product taking the shape of the mould)
  • collecting finished products from the machine
