"A+W came with excellent staff who have made the cooperation really easy. This means that our requirements, even those emerging during the course of the project, were quickly adopted and quickly implemented by A+W."
Under the trade name Termo-Bit, Glas Fandel produces up to 5,000 IG units a day on six production lines. Since 2010, the company has run one of the most modern IG production lines in the world. To run these IG lines, Glas Fandel uses A+W DynOpt 2.0 to control the highly automated cutting environment which, in addition to the Remaster technology, includes a HEGLA SortJet sorting buffer integrated into the production line. Due to these changes, energy consumption has been reduced by more than 45% and CO2 emission also reduced considerably. According to Guido Schwarz, the overall balance of investments is very satisfactory. The yield has been maximized and the waste considerably reduced in connection with huge energy savings and an increase in output.
From its foundation in 1935 until today, Fandel has progressed to one of the leading IG manufacturers in Europe, producing up to 5000 high-tech IG units a day on its six production lines, with more than 200 employees.
