More performance in glass production

Our linear actuators facilitate the technology shift

Since introducing WITTENSTEIN actuators, IPROTec GmbH has improved the performance of glass machines at Zwiesel Kristallglas AG and made the handling process more reproducible.

Servo technology offers crystal clear benefits


Servo technology is increasingly taking the place of pneumatics whenever existing machinery and equipment are modernized or optimized. Expensive compressed air can be dispensed with and the risk of leaks is eliminated. Servo technology also convinces with crystal clear performance benefits: better controllability, more precision and superior reproducibility of the overall process. All of this enables significantly higher productivity, which is why IPROTec chose linear actuators made by WITTENSTEIN for a retrofit project at Zwiesel Kristallglas.

Linear actuators take the place of pneumatics. Together with WITTENSTEIN we achieved a successful technology shift.
