May 2017

The May issue of Glass International brings you company profiles from across the globe, as we look at Verallia’s recent €46 million modernisation at its VOA plant in France, review the successful Glassman South America show in Argentina, and interview the head of StekloSouz in Russia ahead of Mir Stekla.

This month we also focus on the topic of furnaces and furnace technology, with features from TECO, Falorni Tech, Excelsius, Ametek Land, and consultant Richard van Breda amongst others.

We also have technical features on glass recycling from Germany’s IGR, coatings from Stewart Engineers, and precision weighing from Zippe Industrieanlagen.

This is alongside our usual mix of columns, latest industry news, and events – including a preview for China Glass.
