A major U.S. tableware manufacturer presented us with a challenge: Develop one lehr for the multiple functions of preheat/decorating/annealing or annealing-only to fit on existing floor space.

We accepted the challenge, then designed, engineered and produced a versatile, 130-foot borosiliate tableware and ovenware lehr. It was sized to meet maximum decorating requirements, moreover operates as an annealing lehr to run at annealing cycle belt speeds.

As a result of the success of this project, a second, virtually identical lehr was produced and installed to accommodate increasing production needs.
