Horn Glass Industries AG, a leading manufacturer of glass melting furnaces worldwide for the container and float glass industry has recently opened another tin bath plant in Russia.
Horn continues to increase its own expertise and technical skills, and rather than outsource, offers in-house engineering, manufacture and installation and commissioning of tin baths, ensuring optimal customer service. Customer specifications and requirements are integrated from the initial planning phase, and projects include feasibility studies and timeframe projections.
The big components of the tin bath, such as the bath floor cooling system, the steel structure, the floor resp. roof casing, the complete automation, the media pipework and the dross box including the hood are planned and manufactured on site in Plößberg. The equipment, from the tweel, the venting, the entrance coolers and the graphite installations up to the exit coolers and the mobile and stationary linear motors are within Horn´s scope of supply.
Monitoring, production assistance and staff training seminars are provided to clients by Horn’s specialist staff. Horn’s ability to supply entire float glass plants, from preparation of raw materials to packaging of the finished product, constitutes a considerable competitive advantage for its customers. This is shown by successfully commissioned projects in Russia, Belarus, the Republic of Dagestan and Kyrgyzstan.
