Here we are at the factory of thermoses, thermomugs and thermo-bottles. Initially, we knew the following: now everything with “thermo” is a trend; there are products with single and double walls; the best of them keep the temperature from 12 to 24 hours, and the top is twisted with a lid.
Sheaves of metal pipes in the first workshop didn't cause interest so we moved on. “These are the future thermo mugs,” came a voice from behind. We surprised stopped... In which “ordinary pipe”can turn one find out in the following workshops. Machine tools rattled pipes into billets, molded, grinded, threaded, inserted into each other ... “And here the inner bulb and the outer shell are joined together,” the technologist nodded at two feeble workers with welding machines. “That's the reason why the production takes 30 days,” a glimpse of our guess. - It's impossible that the work of several giant workshops rested on two people. This should be done by an automatic machine!” “Of course,”- our guide laughed and showed several modern units on which welding made up in a split second. However, just a stone's throw away, it was found that manual labor was still indispensable. The worker meticulously examined the rows of inverted thermo mugs and corrected the "yellow beads" in them. “This is a sealant, it will melt and prevent leakage,” the attendant explained. In the next building we saw how the mugs were painted, dried and rubberized. And most importantly– how they make a logo printing. Nearby were circulation items for the store and limited for the anniversary of the cosmetics company. The statement “design sells” has become simply clear. The rubberized surface with a circular seal or mirror engraving turned identical products into objects, if not from different planets, then precisely from different price categories.
At our factory, we met with a representative of "Contigo", the world leader in the production of thermo mugs. The meeting was short and the signing of the contract on a napkin did not end, but left a pleasant feeling of pride: we produce thermoses and mugs in the same place as the flagships and innovators of the thermal market.
Now we know about a million nuances that ultimately affect the quality and price of the product.
