Even if there are multiple different solutions for your challenge, we will take your special needs into account and therefore the provided solution is always tailor-made.

Plant audit

We provide Plant Audits as part of our Solutions Clinic. Your glass industry batch plant can be aged, you might need to raise up the capacity, improve the operation or difficulty in finding spare parts may harm the plant maintenance. The solution is not always a new batch plant. It can be part of it, that solves problems e.g. in the dosing or in removing the plant dust. In many cases, with a new recycling plant, we can significantly improve your business and make it more sustainable.

The main goal for the Plant Audit is to have realistic and up-to-date view to the state of the batch plant, your expectations and boundaries. Resources are determined by what we together agree to be done.

In a typical case we map condition of different sections of the batch plant (mechanics, electrics, control system) by position. Conversations with your operating and maintenance staff, and a guidance to them on more efficient operation and maintenance are essential parts of the Plant Audit. Our Plant Audit -report includes our suggestions for operations, based on our perceptions, surveys and measurements made at the batch plant.

Value engineering

Value Engineering is full-service engineering, that adds value to the service you get from Lahti Glass Technology as part of our Solutions Clinic.

We take your demands and circumstances into account and provide you a batch plant model, plant upgrade or a subassembly that will solve your challenges.
