With the expansion of Melting Tank 8 in Jena, Germany, Schott Technical Glass Solutions (TGS) announced it has doubled its production capacity. Following its renaming in 2009, the company is focusing on attractive growth markets with an enhanced product portfolio. To this end, the company reports that another tank will be put into operation in 2011.

Melting Tank 8, which was put into operation at the end of May, was rebuilt to increase production capacity in order to accelerate its growing business. The facility now features an additional electric heating unit to increase the melting capacity, while the dimensions of the tank have remained the same. The use of microfloat technology also makes it possible to float smaller amounts of glass. A further microfloat tank, to be commissioned in 2011, will offer even greater flexibility.
