Why choose a systron edge processing machine?

In the middle of last year, a systron 3525pro edge processing machine was set up in part of the hall in the production plant of Vetrotech in Namyslow.

The machine processes glass with maximum dimensions of 3.5 x 2.5 m, while the smallest size that can be processed is 600 x 160 mm.

“As for the thickness of the processed glass, it ranges from 3 to 25 mm, which meets our production needs,” says technologist manager from Vetrotech Polska with many years of experience. “An unquestionable noteworthy advantage is the efficiency of the machine, which fully meets our production needs for the moment. We use it for seaming, grinding and polishing glass,” explains project manager and WCM. “systron is an uncompromising supplier of machines, characterized by innovation and openness to customer needs.

Machines ‘made by systron’ are precise, efficient and very intuitive to use. In addition – which is a huge plus – systron’s service and technical support work really well.”

Asking the technologist manager from Vetrotech about his experience with the machine 6 months after installation, he explains: “Both installation and training went smoothly, this period allowed us to learn the full range of the machine’s capabilities. The 3525pro machine has been working for us for six months now and meets our expectations in terms of in terms of quality and production time.


What are the plans for 2024?

“As for Vetrotech Poland, an expansion of the Namyslow plant is planned for the first quarter of 2024,” explains Vetreotech project manager. The additional office space will serve as an administrative centre.

Miroslaw Kwiatkowski, country manager responsible for systron’s operations in Poland, adds: “Although systron machines have already been appreciated by companies from 17 countries: from Austria, Germany, Switzerland, the Netherlands, Belgium, Great Britain, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Finland, Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Russia, Estonia and, of course, Poland, and recently also from Italy and Turkey, we are always extremely pleased to see another installation in Poland, on one of the most important and, after all, largest glass markets in Europe. We are convinced that the intensification of processes related to the automation of production, the reduction of labor costs and the growing demands of the markets to improve quality and efficiency provide us with excellent opportunities for development.”
