Out of the Lab and into the Real World –  IPS Measured Dynamically on the Line

If you’ve been following my posts in this IPS series; we’ve already discussed what IPS (Inches Per Second) measurement is and how it relates to the bottling industry.
Basically, IPS is the glass industry’s strength rating of any given bottle.

This post will take a more technical ‘deep-dive’ into other methods of measuring IPS and introduce a more dynamic IPS calculation for fillers and glass manufacturers alike.

Industry Production Shop Talk
IPS – What It Means & Why it’s a Vital Measurement for Glass Packaging.

In my last post, I explained that the IPS (Inches Per Second) measurement came about as a strength rating for glass producers.

Today, IPS is fast-becoming a vital measurement tool for fillers trying to design and process a lightweight bottle design without reaching a breaking point (literally) where it cannot withstand the impact it receives on a given line.

When I started out in this industry I asked a lot of questions to better understand IPS. As anyone who has ever Googled ‘IPS Glass’ or an equivalent search string can attest, it’s historically been a term used in glass production and isn’t particularly well documented outside of that industry.

So, let’s dig into what an IPS rating of a bottle really means.
