Lippert Equipment Used in Upgrades

August 6, 2000
Among the quality enhancement measures being undertaken by the Helsinki-based Designor, the company has ordered a diamond belt, plate base wet polishing machine from Lippert GmbH & Co. KG. The alumina content of Designor’s ceramic bodies demands the best available polishing technology; normal dry polishing or simple wet polishing will not suffice. Lippert’s new diamond belt wet polishing machine reportedly yields consistent, top-quality results, even under aggravated conditions.

Additionally, Vista Alegre of Portugal is automating its holloware production division and has ordered a third Lippert casting system to complement its two current Lippert systems, as well as a drying system for all castings.
