The product range is complemented by the Medical Laboratory division, offering laboratory equipment, instruments, closures and packaging solutions in small batches.
In November this year HORN® received the order for the cold repair of furnace 2 for the Austrian parent plant in Koeflach. This is a 93.75 m² end fired furnace with six forehearths for the production of container glass. In the future the plant will produce 270 tonnes of flint glass per day. The existing furnace will be enlarged by HORN® and equipped with new heating equipment and safety control. Furthermore, it will be equipped with a new melting boosting system, a new HVR® 700F-2P batch charger and further furnace equipment.
Shortly after the order was placed, the first video conference for coordination talks with Stoelzle Oberglas GmbH regarding the cold repair took place. At this point we wish all parties involved a successful and trouble-free project.
