Grenzebach Maschinenbau: mechanical and software developments on show

2012-10-20 | Product news

With over 40 years’ experience in the glass industry, Grenzebach is no newcomer to the continuous and ever more demanding requests from glassmakers with regards to equipment and control of the same. At glasstec, the German specialist will be presenting two important developments regarding machinery and software: the new direct drive stacker and control system architecture.

The Grenzebach product range comprises every possible stacking option, from small glass formats up to jumbo sizes
Grenzebach goes direct
Significantly faster cycle time, higher plate weights and safe handling of plates up to 16 metres in length - the new Grenzebach stacker generation once again sets new benchmarks. The material flow equipment specialist now starts out with directly driven stackers, which can cope with any rack geometry. Glass manufacturers using a variety of rack types and sizes will now benefit from this high degree of flexibility. Operators may rely on a rack library to store, to retrieve and to set up the various rack types quickly and easily. The new Grenzebach stacker generation definitely proves itself through performance. The special focus that design engineers put on consistently, reducing the dead weight and masses moved, clearly pays off. Apart from the already mentioned high degree of flexibility, the new stackers excel through work pace, peak load and plate size performance values previously not available on the market.
The same applies for functionality and operability. This reflects, in detail, the over 40 years of experience Grenzebach offers in developing high-end stackers. The intelligent stacker design combines several functions in a single device.
The new stackers can be operated in various loading and unloading modes (tin and air side) without the need for additional mechanics. The machine is entirely software controlled. Enabling the loading mode, for example, just needs a mouse click. All new stackers are driven by servo motor with planetary gear...
