Platinum equipment

For the glass and chemical industries SAXONIA produces special equipment made of precious metals. Due to their special material properties they are characterised by excellent temperature and corrosion resistance.

We supply precious metal equipment produced individually or as a series, construct according to customer designs or apply our engineering resources to converting individual specifications into customised user solutions. As a result you will always receive a device that is manufactured with high technical skills from certified materials and subjected to accurate quality testing.
