Focal points

Glass & quartz glass processing
The ability to develop innovative centres and systems bases on traditional values and experiences in thermal and mechanical glass processing. The Arnold Group offers both: a wide range of burners, tools and standard machines for the sophisticated glass industry as well as complex process solutions. For example, for solar glass tube production, high precision resizing of quartz glass tubes, high automated production of laboratory and lamp glass and other special applications of the thermal processing of glass.

Fibre Optic
Glass fibers are used for data communication in the digital world. The complex production of fiber glass requires precise production processes. Arnold provides a wide range of machines for preparing and joining the preforms and ingots, horizontal stretching machines and vertical sleeving-/ jacketing machines MCVD (modified chemical vapor deposition) - and plasma machines for etching and tapering of sleeve pipes. Highest level of vertical integration of production and economically optimal production conditions are achieved with the products developed and manufactured by the Arnold Group.

The photovoltaic sector is the core competence of mechanical cutting, grinding and polishing of poly-, mono- and multicrystalline silicon ingots and bricks. The Arnold Group offers innovative stand alone machines, modified upon request for individual specifications and requirements, complete machining centers and customized complete systems with automatic linkage of different production processes including intelligent manufacturing control systems.

The Arnold Group is active for more than 30 years as a partner of the automotive and supplier industry in the automation of production and manufacturing processes. A highly qualified team of specialists from the automation technique plans and produces customer-specific system solutions in assembly automation for aggregate and chassis assemblies, automatic packaging of cable strands, foundry technology, and much more. Innovative and future-proof know-how of the company is the basis for a lasting and successful cooperation.
