Lightweight glass containers produced by the narrow neck press and blow process are subject to ware quality defects due to contact between the glass and the plunger. These defects are a response to the deformation of the glass and unsuitable tooling materials. To overcome these problems current research is developing a greater understanding of the response of the glass and interaction with the tooling during the parison forming process.
