Buss & Partner, based in Munich, Germany, has been active since 1974 in the field of sales and technical service for inspection machines within the glass container industry.
Prior to 2004, Buss & Partner comprised of up to 16 employees and was responsible for the European sales agency of Agr, Emmeti and futronic. Since 2000, the companies focus moved step by step onto consulting and product development.
Today, Buss & Partner develops innovative technologies and products for quality control in the container glass industry and supports other companies in promoting their potential by introducing contacts on the highest management level (e.g. triggering the purchase of ICS Inex by Emhart Glass).
Since the 1980s, Dr. Martin Buss & Partner has organised a common booth for 6-8 companies from the glass container industry at Glasstec trade show in Dusseldorf. This booth, traditionally in Hall 13, is hosting companies such as Groupe Rondot, futronic, ilis and Total Glass Lubricants Europe.
Recent products developed by Buss & Partner (to assist the measurement of the Hot End process) include the PC 24/7 (for pressure control) and TCS (temperature control, licensed to Emhart Glass).
At Glasstec 2010, Buss & Partner is presenting the HMS (Hot End Measurement System). The HMS is compact, simple to use yet robust to withstand the harsh environment. It provides semi-automated non-contact sampling of dimensional measurements at the Hot End (dimensions include: height, lean, finish area, ovality and glass thickness).
