Complete cold end from one source for Turkish glass plant

For the Bastürk Cam glass plant in Malatya, Turkey, MSK has delivered the complete cold end including controls and assembly from one source. Production started at the beginning of January 2018. The cold end includes the connection of the lehr with three bottle conveyor lines, palletisers, shrink wrapping system and pallet conveyors and has already been designed for extension by an additionalfurnace. Uwe Jonkmanns reports.

It was at glasstec 2016 that Turkish manufacturer Bastürk  Cam placed an order with MSK for delivery of the complete cold end for its glass production plant in Malatya. The decades of experience and leading knowhow of the full service cold end provider MSK was one of the decisive factors for the glass production newcomer. The cold end was designed for an existing building structure and started up less than a year later.

The best possible communication was assured with the project owners at Bastürk Cam by a Turkish-speaking project management team at MSK and Turkish-speaking on-site assembly team in Turkey. MSK delivered all equipment for the cold end, starting from the lehr, all the way to pallet packaging from one source and as a turnkey installation. This helped rule out several component interfaces as error sources and networks the entire system with uniform control software.

One source from lehr to packaging
Production at Bastürk Cam started on schedule in January 2018 with start-up of the first furnace. The bottles and jars produced are transported on three conveyor lines through the inspection area to the palletisers. MSK bottle conveyor systems are made in-house from stainless steel and premium components to ensure long life and like all MSK machines, are controlled uniformly by the same MSK software EMSY. The three MSK Triotech palletisers installed are equipped with the universal MSK Unitech palletising head. This allows for the flexible production of various glass products in Malatya with the same palletising head, without downtime for job changes. The palletising stations are supplied by a central  dressing line with two pallet formats. After palletising, pallet conveyors and a mobile MSK pallet shuttle car transport the glass pallets fully automatically to the MSK Multitech shrink-wrapping line, where they are film-wrapped and thus protected on all six sides for storage and transportation.
