Cwmtillery Glass (CGC), based in South Wales, U.K., has added another HEGLA Optimax cutting table to its operations. The system incorporates laser technology and two loading systems that include a double-sided loader as well as a shuttle loader, which can provide the double- sided loader with many more types of glass.

As an investment, this will allow the company to further increase cutting capabilities, increase efficiency and work in conjunction with other equipment already installed, according to the company. A new 20,0000 square-foot extension to the CGC production facility has ensured that new equipment including a furnace will enable the company to improve and extend its manufacturing capabilities, according to the company.
