The reconstruction of the furnace of the Jinju plant is also an opportunity to use the latest and best technology in the production of glass containers.

Automatic swabbing is one of the areas in which Hite Jinro Ind. wants to invest in order to guarantee the highest level of productivity and after a long investigation process, including visits abroad to meet other users to get their feedback, the Socabelec swabbing-robot has been selected.

Customer satisfaction, reliability of the robot, on-the-fly swabbing without stopping production, without rejecting containers, as well as a high level of safety for operators working together with the robot, were the main criteria in Socabelec’s favour.

The robots will be installed on IS machines supplied by Bucher Emhart Glass.
