Bucher Emhart Glass celebrating 10 years, 200 machines at Johor Bahru plant
Ten years ago, Emhart Glass (as it was then called) laid plans for a new state-of-theart manufacturing plant in Taman Preindustrian Cemerlang, Johor Bahru, Malaysia. Construction began in 2008, and the new plant was officially opened in 2009. Covering a total area of around 6,000 square meters, the plant replaced an existing site managed by Formac, a former supplier that Emhart Glass had acquired in 2006.
In 2014, Bucher Emhart Glass launched its BlankRadar forming process control system, based on XPAR Vision’s Gob Assist and Blank Temperature Control products. Now, this agreement has been extended, with Bucher Emhart Glass selling the XPAR IR-D system under the Bucher Emhart Glass FlexRadar brand. Martin Jetter, President of Bucher Emhart Glass spoke exclusively to Glass Worldwide about this development and its positive implications for the international glass container industry.
Kuwait’s Gulf Glass Manufacturing Company undertook a modernisation in 2016 at its 300 tonnes a day plant. It selected Bucher Emhart Glass’s inspection machinery for its cold end and was pleased with how smoothly the installation went.
XPAR Vision and Bucher Emhart Glass extend their cooperation agreement
Following the cooperation agreement made in June 2014 under which Bucher Emhart Glass launched its new BlankRadar (based on two of XPAR Vision’s products, the Gob Assist (GA) and the Blank Temperature Control (BTC)), XPAR Vision and Bucher Emhart Glass extended this agreement.
