After, under the storm of applauses, the President of the country cut symbolical ribbon of «Türkmen aýna önümleri» and entered the building of production workshops of the complex.

Inside the building, the Head of the State pushed the button and launched conveyor line of industrial giant, which is to be the flagship of glassware industry. The whole process can be monitored by the video on technology train of production of sheet glass and glassware units.

As it was mentioned above, the production is based on advanced floating technology – the method of production of thermo-polished glass based on pewter melting that replaced other method of polishing using big mechanical conveyors. This is outstanding achievement in glass and glassware production, which are used in different spheres of economy including in food and medicinal industry.

The specialist told to Presdient Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov about functional characteristics of the equipment from «Glastone» (Finland) installed in the industrial glass processing workshops. The capacity of the unit is 300 thousand square meters of tempered glass, which is five time more solid than regular one. This product is safe and used in construction, automobile making and production of furniture and home appliances.

The Head of the State observed with the interest the process of tinting and laminating of tempered glass using specialized equipment «Buhler» (Germany) and «Lises» (Austria). Various types of soundproof and energy saving windows are made of such glass.

Samples of the materials and glass items new for our country have been demonstrated at the small exhibition there. One of the employees told that the production includes the workshops for enrichment of material, production of polished glass, packaging items and glass industrial processing.

President Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov has also paid attention that raw materials with relative characteristics are chosen depending on the type of glass and its designation. Its components include lime, quartz sand, dolomite, sodium sulphate and other materials supplied to the facility from local deposits.

Equipment from «Zippe» is installed for this purpose in the workshop. Additives in certain proportions are used for production of coloured glass. All components are thoroughly sieved, dried and mixed to even powder.

After, the Head of the State was informed about the work of melting machines from «HOPN Glass Industries AG» for production of rolled glass. Such characteristics of glass as strength, appearance and thermal resistance mainly depend on the consistency of physical and chemical composition of the substance that forms the blend – glass mass.

The blend undergoes heat treatment of 1100 Celsius degrees and delivered to special tub with melted pewter. Due to the gravity, surface tension and ability to float of melted glass mass on top of pewter, absolutely flat and parallel surface is formed.

After, the sheet of glass is either stretched or the spreading is stopped for receiving of certain thickness from 3 to 12 mm. afterwards, it is removed and sent for burning where this work is performed by the machine from Belgian «Cnud». This phase is very important in technological floating process.

Technological process of the facility includes the production of various clear and colour glassware for food product and medicines. Owing to high productive forming equipment from Italian «Bottero», the production of jars and bottles for drinks as well as medicinal bottles and vessels of 0.25 to 3 litres volume became feasible.

It is important to note that production cycle in all links stipulates automated control and operation of technology process on international standards level. For provision of full compliance to quality requirements and adherence to set parameters from preparation of raw materials until the production, the laboratory with precise instruments and equipment was built at the facility.

The Head of the State noted that putting of «Türkmen aýna önümleri» facility into operation would allow considerable reduction of import volumes of relative production to our country and the arrangement of the export of wide variety of glassware in the future. Designated outputs of the facility are oriented to the most promising directions in this market.

Taking into account that industrial facility is new enterprise in glass industry of our country and the requirements in qualified personnel for production process is very high, Turkmen specialists have relative training in foreign countries.

Having completed the familiarization with high technology production process, President Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov left memory entry in the Book of Honoured Guests and having presented the keys from new vehicles to the personnel, said warm good-bye to the particpants of the ceremony and left the place of event.
