Precision Engineering for the Glass Industry

At Glassworks Hounsell, we trace our root back for more than a century. Also, for many decades, we have precision-engineered equipment for the glass industry. We designed our equipment to work optimally with the glass industry’s demand. We can tailor our equipment to suit your needs.

Equipment for the glass industry must be able to withstand extreme environments. Therefore, you need a specialist manufacture to preserve the quality of your equipment. The equipment must feed tonnes of (recycled) raw material.

Furthermore, it must operate 24 hours day, 7 days a week. Lastly, it must operate in harsh environment, with interfacing temperatures around or beyond 600°C.

In harsh conditions, you must have the best quality products for the job. Good quality products can help you cut down on maintenance and repairs – which can stall production.


We manufacture batch charging and feeding systems for all furnace sizes and glasses. We are a cutting-edge British manufacturer. While working with us, you can expect high-quality products and skilled engineers.

Additionally, we are SO9001 registered. Our accreditations can offer our customers peace of mind.

For this customer, we produced oscillating batch chargers. Also, we produced  3.5m electromagnetic vibratory feeders and PLC control systems. Our in-house team custom-designed all of these products.

They have successfully undergone rigorous testing including the customer’s own factory acceptance test prior to signing off and packing. The consignment has then been carefully packed in-house and has now started its journey to the new home in the far east.  We have been in close contact with the customer every step of the way so they can be assured they are receiving a product that is precisely tailored to their needs.

Glassworks Hounsell is very proud to continue its long-standing support and supply of the global glass industry. Within the last 12 months, we have also carried out bespoke precision work for the printing, packaging, confectionery, marine, defence, aviation, aluminium,  oil and gas industries to name a few!

Our capabilities are wide-reaching, and we have a wealth of in-house skills in machining and fabrication thanks to our engineers. We have a range of CNC machines, including our large bed VMC, measuring in at 3000mm x 1600mm x 80mm with a capacity of 10,000kgs.
