Bystronic glass: high-speed production of triple insulating glass units

2013-08-09 | Ig equipment

The high and increasing proportion of triple insulating glass is forcing insulating glass manufacturers to adjust their production processes according to the demand. Therefore Bystronic glass offers its speed’line which is able to produce triple insulating glass in the same time it takes other lines to produce double units. The production line consists of two tps’applicator components arranged one after the other, the new speed’assembler for the quick assembly and gas-filling of insulating glass units, as well as the speed’sealer sealing robot.

Bystronic's speed’line produces triple insulating glass in the same time it takes other lines to produce double units
Speed’line convinces with the shortest of cycle times
“Three work steps are decisive with regard to the quick production of triple insulating glass units: The application of the spacers, the gas-filling of the spaces between the lites and the sealing of the units,” explains Klaus Puschmann, Product Manager at Bystronic glass. In the speed’line, all three processes are perfectly designed for the production of triple units and enable the quickest cycle times.

Simultaneous application of two spacers
On the speed’line, the fully automated application of the spacers is performed for example by two tps’applicator components arranged one after the other. In order to achieve the maximum throughput, the thermoplastic TPS® warm edge spacers are applied to glass plates 2 and 3 of the triple insulating glass units almost simultaneously. This ensures the continuous and quick supply of glass plates with spacers. As is usually the case with TPS®, the respectively required spacer is applied directly to the glass plate – no separate pre-production or provision of suitable spacers is required. The material from the drum is applied as a strand at approximately 120°C in a patented and proven process. “As a result, this permits a real, order-based production without any time losses, without having to divide the orders into standard and special formats or without having to subsequently sort the units. Even changing shapes and formats with different spaces between the lites does not influence ...
