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.
