Glass production for smart phones, tablets, flat TV sets and other electronic devices requires special technology. This starts in a batch plant which has special features compared to a standard plant.
Valuable raw materials and ingredients are exclusively protected against contamination. Also, segregation of the batch is avoided by transporting each batch to the furnace bin without any transfer points. The traditional batch transfer equipment, like belt conveyors, are replaced with automatic batch container transfer system: each batch is transferred in a closed container from the batch plant to the furnace bin by using an automated lift.
