Our float glass linear motor range

Within the float glass manufacturing process, linear motors are utilised in the tin baths to help give some control of the temperature profile across the ribbon width. By controlling the tin flow this can be achieved and is normally controlled by using linear motors. R Baker (Electrical) Ltd has the facility to manufacture and repair 6 and 12 pole linear motors, ranging in length and design specification. Our fully equipped manufacturing facility is staffed by experienced electrical designers who are able to design and modify float glass linear motors to meet your specific requirements.

Our engineering team can offer full linear motor systems. This may include trolley systems, control panels or even bespoke cooling systems to ensure they meet specific environments around the world.
