Turkish glassmaker Gürallar Cam Embalaj has chosen Xpar Vision to supply its hot end technology for inspection and process monitoring.

Xpar Vision commissioned its IR-D systems on each production line during the plant startup.

Gürallar Cam Embalaj CEO, Abdullah Gayret, said: “We want to improve our efficiency and quality level in the first step for container glass by working with Xpar Vision’s latest technologies.

“We believe our cooperation will grow rapidly. Gürallar Cam Ambalaj will be one of Xpar Vision’s major business partners in further innovations.”

Xpar prepared Gürallar's production team prior to startup by providing training and instruction at its own plant.

During startup and in the months thereafter an Xpar consultant supported the production team to ensure optimal results.

Gürallar decided to invest in a new container glass plant in 2014. Its first furnace has a 300 tpd melting capacity and has three production lines.

The plant is located Kütahya, Turkey and is established on a 300,000m2 site.
