EME’s overhaul success on Wiegand-Glas project

Wiegand-Glas is a family-run business group committed to innovative packaging concepts made of glass and PET. The company required a major plant overhaul in Ernstthal, Germany, including reconditioning and enhancing technology.

As a leading supplier of batch technologies and cullet handling equipment, EME was an ideal choice for this large-scale project.

EME added five new scrapers to the cullet return system, installed new belt scales to the cullet addition and fitted de-dusting units to the cullet transport. The company also completely overhauled and reconditioned the crushers and added a filter dust silo with pneumatic suction system to limit contamination.

EME’s solutions have helped the Wiegand-Glas Ernstthal plant increase capacity and add efficiency across the plant’s nine production lines.
