GERMANY - Schott TGS Increases Capacity with
Expanded Production Facility
June 1, 2010
Schott Technical Glass Solutions (TGS) expanded one of the melting
tanks at its Jena, Germany facility and says it has virtually doubled
its production capacity. The company says it is working toward growth
markets with an enhanced product portfolio and will add another
tank in 2011.
The facility now features an additional electric heating unit to
increase the melting capacity, while the dimensions of the tank
have remained the same. The use of microfloat technology also makes
it possible to float smaller amounts of glass.
