The pusher from Inmara from the side

INMARA - How hot and fragile glass containers get safely into the lehr

Things get hot in the industrial production of glass containers. But how do the fragile, still red-hot parts get quickly and safely into the lehr? This is a mechanical engineering task that BUSSE has mastered together with Inmara AG.

The transport of large quantities of very hot glass containers to the lehr is handled by a servo-electric pusher which makes a kinematically quite complicated movement. It is located in a machine housing that is open to the rear and equipped with access doors and an operating terminal at the front.

BUSSE supported Inmara in this important project both with the design for the new machine and with the construction of the machine housing in all its details.

With its clear, functional structure, the design of the pusher adapts to the robust working environment; it conveys an appropriate and credible aesthetic in a sometimes dirt-intensive environment. For example, bright colors from Inmara's CI are only found on the more insensitive vertical housing surfaces. In contrast, the more horizontal surfaces are finished in a light gray, which even looks good when dust accumulates.

Patina capability is the magic word for aesthetic survival in dirty environments. This requirement is also met by the operating keypad, which can be folded into a protected position during ongoing production - a solution that Busse has competently implemented in addition to the housing structure.

Inmara thus presents a highly professional product with good function: it proves its worth in a stressful industrial production environment, and strengthens the company's brand identity and market position.

Inmara AG is based in Pfäffikon, Switzerland, was founded in 1961 and develops production technology solutions for mechanical engineering and industrial manufacturing of all types of glass containers.

„Child seats are not only visually complex but also technically demanding. Our longstanding partnership with BUSSE turns development into a creative experience. Design sprints and a versatile selection matrix relieve engineers, minimize time-consuming iterations. We appreciate BUSSE for their timely implementations despite limited resources. The collaboration is not only effective but also truly enjoyable!"



"We were particularly impressed by the enthusiasm and technical creativity of the Busse employees. The atmosphere in the project was characterized by professional looseness and great agility. We turned an idea into a finished product in 4 months!"



„We discovered BUSSE Design+Engineering through online research. Contacting them for a functional model led to a contract for a technical redesign. Due to our concept changes, Redesign II was initiated and realized in a prototype, earning a golden award at the 2019 Ambiente trade fair. BUSSE executed the project with precision, on schedule, and with excellent craftsmanship. We look forward to future collaboration with BUSSE."



„The collaboration with the entire project team was always goal-oriented, constructive and pleasant in terms of communication. Mr. Timm and his project team always kept the functional and safety requirements in mind and understood what is also important to us in product development: can-do mentality, agile mindset as well as flexibility and efficiency in all project situations."



"With BUSSE as a sparring partner, we were able to successfully work out a brand-defining design for our latest products that was appropriate for the target group. BUSSE understood our internal company processes very well and was therefore able to deliver optimal results. Deadlines were always met, you can rely on BUSSE. Anytime again!"



"We were positively surprised by the collaboration with BUSSE in that the focus was not solely on the appearance of our product, but rather on the interplay of economical manufacturing solutions, optimized ergonomics and a functional design. The result now impresses with a coherent, unprecedented design concept."
