In this work an integrated model for all the process of glass forming of glass containers is presented. The model addresses press-and-blow and blow-and-blow procedures from the gob forming to the final product. Glass forming involves coupled thermal-mechanical physical phenomena, in which the material viscous flow is highly dependent on heat transfer which, in turn, is dependent changes of shape due to material flow. Numerical aspects associated with the model implementation and its validation with real formed products are discussed.
