AGC Glass has ordered a batch plant and cullet return system from Zippe for its second glass float line in Guaratingueta, Brazil.

Zippe will supply the entire plant with the exception of the concrete works turn-key.

AGC and Zippe will both rely on on a Siemens SPS System S7 400H control system.

AGC aims for the best quality in weighing and chose a solution from Zippe.

Zippe’s standard remote access was implemented in order to realise future plant extensions and modifications as efficiently as possible.

The cullet return is controlled by a Siemens S7 300 SPS and connected with the batch plant control system by a fibre optic cable.
