Mexican glass engineering company FAMA has received an order for a 12-section triple gob IS machine.

Costa Rican container glass manufacturer Vicesa (Vidriera Costa Rica) ordered the machine along with a 2G Kit conversion and a K54 feeder.

Fama will also be responsible for optimising the lay-out in order to increase the glass pull from their furnace.

The machine is designed to run at approximately 475 BPM.

FAMA’s Sales and Marketing Director Luis Zertuche said the company was extremely pleased to be working with Vicesa.

He said: “We have worked with Vicesa for the last year and a half visiting them and reviewing their potential necessities in order to be present when the opportunity arose.

“This is a very robust and flexible machine that includes a high efficiency mould cooling system.”

FAMA deliver the machine in Costa Rica by the second week of October.
