HORN Glass Industries invests in in-house production at the Plößberg site

HORN Glass Industries invests in a new sheet metal and bar storage system as well as in a high-precision cutting machine.

Working more effectively through state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities provides our manufacturing staff an even more productive and attractive working environment. With the investment in a new sheet metal and bar storage system as well as in a high-precision cutting machine, HORN Glass Industries ensures a smoother production process and has the opportunity to respond even more flexibly to customer requirements.

The UNITOWER B sheet metal storage system and the UNITOWER bar storage system from KASTO enable the fully automated withdrawal of material, shorten the set-up time and save storage space. The MicroStep fine plasma cutting machine with R5 Rotator also offers numerous advantages, such as an increase in efficiency, just-in-time production and less production of waste due to the fully automated nesting software.

The realisation of the first of many other planned investments has thus been successfully implemented. But that was not all: A forward looking company like HORN Glass Industries always keeps its eyes open for innovative developments in a working world that is characterised by rapid changes and dynamics. That´s why further investments will be made by 2022.
