Belarusian glass fabric producer JSC Polotsk Steklovolokno has ordered various lines from Brückner to increase its production capacity. The lines, which are planned to be delivered at the end of 2020, will be used in thermal finishing, caramelization and desizing processes of the glass fibre.
Founded in 1958, JSC Polotsk Steklovolokno has been among others a world market leader in the production of glass fabrics for decades. The wide variety of products from glass fibre to glass yarn, electrical insulation and construction glass fabric, glass mesh and silica materials enables the company to be successful in many branches of industry. These include mechanical engineering and shipbuilding, automotive and aircraft industry, electro-technical industry, metallurgy as well as the military and construction industry.
Leading manufacturers of the glass fabric market prefer Brückner
Every year, JSC Polotsk Steklovolokno processes around 55,000 tonnes of glass fabric for over 900 different end products. For the thermal finishing, caramelization and desizing of glass fibre, several lines have recently been ordered from the German machine manufacturer Brückner. The family-run company located in Southern Germany has been producing lines for the textile industry; as well as for technical applications for more than 70 years. In the field of glass fabric finishing, market-leading manufacturers trust in Brückner technology since decades.
Hanna Padalitsa, project manager at Steklovolokno, is very satisfied with the cooperation. Telling that they have known Brückner since the late 90s, Padalitsa continued saying; “We already had successful and good experience in working together. At that time Brückner supplied us with one line for finishing electrical insulation glass fabric; which is still in operation today at our Polotsk site. We are happy to continue this excellent cooperation with Brückner and ordered several lines from this family-run company. We are convinced that the whole Brückner team will demonstrate the highest level of professionalism; ensure the best quality of the lines we ordered; and provide an extraordinary technical and after-sales service as they always do and for which the company is known worldwide”.
Brückner plans to deliver the lines for glass fiber finishing by the end of 2020.
