17.3.05 German Society of Glass Technology Technical Committee 4
The German Society of Glass Technology (DGG) has a number of technical committees (Fachausschuesse) that meet twice a year for technical presentations and discussions. Committee number 4 covers the subjects of glass machinery and glass forming.

At the spring meeting of the committee, being held in the north German town of Obernkirchen, Juergen will be explaining some of the less well-known facts that lie behind this common measure of forehearth efficiency. Although there is no reason to question the basic idea of the index, the result can be influenced by many factors that are not directly connected with forehearth operation. Because of this it is probably correct to describe the index as a poor method of comparing different forehearths with each other.
