Glass industry

In the glass industry, it is important not only to eliminate residues both on and in the end product but also to prevent tension so as to reduce rejects and waste.

Overview of all industries

Industries -  Glass industry

Our materials can even come into contact with glass that is still glowing without being destroyed. The use of ELTIMID results in significantly longer service lives compared with conventional, graphite-heavy materials of the type often used as cheap and fast-wearing materials.

Special attention is paid to the production areas where the following products are required:

  • Bucks
  • Cooling plates
  • Inserter
  • Cross belts
  • Gripper
  • Lever

The material combination of high-performance ceramics, engineering plastics and metal provide a perfect balance of all required properties:

Our ceramic test plugs perform multiple tasks simultaneously. First of all, of course, they perform functional tests and the programming if necessary. The swash circumference test then checks the pluggability of the assembly. The swash circumference describes how far the contact pins are permitted to deviate from the target position in the X and Y direction. Its size is specified as a diameter. If the pins deviate from it, they are pressed against the very hard but fracture-resistant ceramic test plug during the test process and the drive system stops. This approach ensures that rejects are easily detected.

Beneficial characteristics of the ceramic test plugs:

  • Extremely wear-resistant ceramic for substantially longer service lives
  • Non-magnetic
  • Can also be used to realise the smallest geometries: 0.3 mm wall thickness
  • High technical purity: no abrasion in the component, no incorrect measurements, no premature failure of the pogo pins

Sample Solutions


We produce a range of components and parts for glass manufacturing machines and glass blowing machines, such as bucks, cooling boards, stackers, transverse belts, grippers and levers.

Latest Applications

Thermal insulation

Insulation is used wherever the manufacturing process requires or generates process heat.
