Norwegian Plant to Modernize

July 20, 2000
Figgjo A/S, a manufacturer of vitreous china hotelware, will undertake the modernization of its facilities with the goal of increasing production. Later this year, the company’s plate production will be converted from conventional roller forming to the isostatic pressing process, featuring Dorst PH500 presses.

The system will allow for the combination of different plates of similar sizes in one machine with interchangeable parts. After the project has begun, about 60 plate models will be converted within a few weeks.
