PORTUGAL
New furnace Avintes
After 20 years of production, Avintes' furnace finished its lifecycle this year. The main objectives for the new installation were the improvements on quality, productivity, energy and water consumption.
The use of bigger machines allowed us to use the complete capacity of the furnace with gain in productivity and energy. The cold end area changed drastically, with the replacement of inspection machines by the newest technology in the market and new palletizers.
