LiSEC: reduction of remnant glass plates and broken sheets at Gethke Glas

  Automation and it

With LiSEC Dynopt, Gethke Glas has handed over glass optimization tasks, with consequent reductions in employee work time, delivery time, and cutting time.

LiSEC Dynopt is used by Gethke Glas to optimize its operations
With more than 180 employees, the Gethke Glas Group generates sales of more than EUR 30 million at three locations in Germany. The product range includes insulating glass, float glass, cast glass, safety glass, all-glass doors and fittings, sliding glass door systems and glass canopy systems. The company, which is still family-owned, was founded in 1959 by Richard Gethke. In 1971, the flat glass handling plant in Gronau was expanded to include an insulating glass production with an insulating glass system from LiSEC – this was the start of the cooperation between Gethke Glas and LiSEC. In 2017, the Gronau-based company produced 438,000 m² of insulating glass, of which one third was triple insulating glass. 
Before using LiSEC Dynopt, glass processors at Gethke Glas made about ten optimizations per day with an average of six types of glass per optimization. Two to three sheets of them contained a remnant plate, resulting in between 20 and 30 residues per day. When optimizing orders in Planning and Scheduling, employees tried to avoid remnant plates as far as possible. For example, they looked for suitable orders to improve the glass yield or they disassembled remnant plates and assigned them to manual cutting.
Since the implementation of Dynopt, the LiSEC optimization tool for cutting, employees in Planning and Scheduling no longer pay attention to remnants or disassemble them, but pass on everything 1:1 to dynamic optimization: the optimization task is entirely taken over by...
