This demonstration project concerns an installation designed to optimise the use of energy in a glass manufacturing business, which produces high quality goods. A new oven was constructed which would maintain the high output quality while achieving energy savings. The removal of glass from the continuous feed oven is made by a robot whose movement is controlled about 6 axes. The aim of the project is to recover 3000 kg of glass per day, which would constitute a significant energy saving when compared to the total energy consumption and operating costs.
