We are at service of the glass industry
including various types of glass production e.g. container glass,
pharmaceutical glass, float glass, fibre glass, table ware, crystal glass,
glass wool and foam glass.
Consulting services and glass technology support
Glass manufacturing is very complex. Even the most experienced glass
manufacturer faces tough challenges that are difficult to overcome. Due to
its complexity, theoretical knowledge and a fundamental scientific
understanding of glass and glass production is absolutely needed, combined
with vast practical experience and expertise. Thanks to our assistance to
glass manufacturers in dozens of countries (from Armenia, Bulgaria,
Chile...to Zimbabwe) we built up unique expertise in glass production. We
know the differences between theory, R&D and practice; between a
crucible in a lab melting test and a melting & fining process in a
glass furnace; between furnace modelling, a CFD simulation and reality;
how production should run and how it’s really running...
We are pleased to offer you ‘glass technology knowledge in practice’ based
upon our +30 years of glass technology experience and expertise.
GEM-Projects is not linked to any glass manufacturer
and we do not sell you software, products or equipment related to glass
manufacturing. This totally independent advice and assistance is your best
guarantee for an objective answer and/or solution to your questions and/or
Make use of our world-wide vast experience in glass technology assistance
in order to...
- Reduce your production cost e.g. minimising the glass batch cost,
furnace energy consumption and the amount of rejected glass products.
- Increase the efficiency and productivity of the glass manufacturing
process e.g. optimising your glass (melt) characteristics.
- Improve your overall glass quality and the glass products quality by
eliminating glass defects (in forming, in melting,...) and by
improving quality control and quality assurance.
GEM-Projects offers collaboration, assistance and consulting services on
all major production process steps:
Using our knowledge in the fields of
crystallography, mineralogy and petrography, we offer you a detailed
assistance for specific issues about your mining activities, minerals and
rocks like e.g. usability in glass production, melting &
crystallisation behaviour, valuation & calculation of the fundamental
value of your product based upon specific glass batch cost, impact on
melting energy consumption and glass quality parameters. Take now full
advantage of our combined vast expertise in glass chemistry & physics
Glass melting efficiency, glass quality and production cost; they are
first of all determined by the glass batch composition. It is often
overlooked that (even small) changes in the batch can perfectly generate
technical and operational advantages as well as significant cost saving
benefits. We can help you with detailed glass batch recipe calculations,
raw materials selection, improvement of the glass chemistry, batch cost
optimisation raw materials per ton molten glass, ... →Read more...
The complex processes in your glass furnaces will determine your glass
quality, energy consumption , waste gas emissions and furnace lifetime. We
offer you our knowledge and practical experiences with dozens of glass
furnaces from all over the world to optimise your melting, fining,
homogenisation and conditioning processes. We can help you improving your
furnace performance and melting processes , solving melting problems like
e.g. crystallisations, devitrification, blisters, seeds and batch stones,
To achieve a higher productivity, increased forming speed, yield
improvement and quality improvement, a profound knowledge of the complex
interactions between batch, glass melt behaviour, furnace settings and
glass forming conditions is necessary. We offer you our in the field
experiences and vast glass technology know-how to achieve operational
Using our glass technology knowledge and expertise, we offer a broad range
of consultancy services on glass quality, quality failures, glass breakage
and glass defects of all different types of glass products. We can assist
you to improve your cold-end operation, inspection and QA... →Read
Glass technology and glass production courses
"Knowledge not shared is knowledge
wasted"...We like to share with you and your team our scientific
knowledge and our vast practical experiences. We offer a comprehensive
range of courses and training programs covering all major aspects of
glass melting and glass manufacturing.
courses are always spiced with examples from practice, hints and tips,
which can greatly enhance the effectiveness of the training. The content
of the courses will be adapted according the functional needs,
experience and education level of the participants and objectives of the
courses. E.g. we can elaborate a 'glass manufacturing essentials' course
for e.g. CEOs, CFOs or investors,... about the most important aspects of
e.g. batch cost optimisation, furnace energy cost, product quality,
glass plant organisation (container glass) or glass forming
Experience, independence, freelance flexibility... Numerous
possibilities of collaboration
Using our glass melting production experiences, our flexibility and
independence, there are many possibilities of collaboration and
opportunities to take full advantage of all freelance collaboration
benefits and project results including quality, production improvement
and cost reduction.
