The Glass Machinery Company to Attend Glasstec

Already The Glass Machinery Company is expecting a busy time at Glasstec 2012 with most of the company’s suppliers attending in force at the Dusseldorf exhibition.

The leading glass machinery provider has a convincing reputation across the UK and will be present in Germany to discuss new and existing customer requirements alongside the companies it represents.

Headed up by Phil Birchall, Managing Director, The Glass Machinery Company team is very positive regarding the exhibition despite the difficult economic conditions of the last two years. Phil comments “As an arena, Glasstec offers manufacturers a huge platform to demonstrate advancements that will help to take businesses forward. It is clear that there is now an optimistic determination once again happening in the glass sector. This is extremely encouraging for everyone as there is a positive outlook prevailing about the entire exhibition.” Some of the notable companies attending have new improvements or additions to their ranges which will be shared at Glasstec.

These include: Benteler Maschinenbau will be present in Hall 15, Stand E11 for manufacturers looking for the best in glass drilling, grinding and lamination equipment. The company is committed to ongoing development which will be demonstrated at the show. Fratelli Pezza has a formidable reputation in sandblasting machinery as such the company will be demonstrating the latest developments within the range in Hall 16, Stand D68. Whether a large or small business the Helantec range of gas filling, measurement and control equipment provides a wide range of products for complete quality control. The company will be exhibiting in Hall 17 Stand C14. The Denver range of CNC machines is a well established brand which was developed by the Italian company after recognizing that glass workers were in need of machinery that could withstand long hours of continual use with a minimum of down time and maintenance. The company will be demonstrating developments in its glass and stone machinery product portfolio in Hall 16 Stand D55. Another well-known Italian company will also be attending the exhibition with the latest in filtration systems.

They will be found in Hall 16, Stand D11.

Phil Birchall concludes, “Again the market is changing with new industry legislation coming into effect in the UK next year regarding CE marking. Stringent standards will be introduced which could have considerable effect on the market if manufacturers can’t comply. The machinery within our range will help to take manufacturers forward to meet and exceed those regulations. Glasstec will provide the ideal opportunity for customers to evaluate their needs and plan ahead.”
