Modular Shear Spray Systems
Single Feeder Shear Spray
Graphoidal Developments has more than 25 years experience in the glass industry, initially entering the
market in 1981 with an automatic swabbing system for applying lubrication to the blank moulds on the IS
machines, the industry's standard forming machine for glass moulds.
The company's expertise in spraying applications and precision mixing control led to the introduction of the
first centralised shear spray systems in 1992. In 1993 the first modular system was introduced and to date
more than 240 lines worldwide are equipped with this system.
The success of the modular system for plant wide applications was followed in 1998 with a single production
line unit for one forming machine.

lubrication coating prior to the inspection and filling.
