PPG transitions residential insulating glass production

  Ig equipment

The PPG Residential IG Service Center, which manufactures insulating glass (IG) units for use in residential windows and patio doors, operates the first Automated Tri-Lite Assembly System (ATLAS) production line in the US. The ATLAS line enables PPG to produce triple-pane IG units at a significantly faster rate than it could using a traditional IG production line and with better quality control because of the high level of automation. The PPG Residential IG Service Center also makes conventional IG units as well as IG units in irregular shapes, sizes and configurations.

PPG's Residential IG Service Center features the first ATLAS line for triple-pane IG production in US
PPG Industries has announced that it is continuing to invest in the PPG Residential IG Service Center in Carlisle, Pa., including installing the first Automated Tri-Lite Assembly System (ATLAS) production line for insulating glass (IG) in the US.

It also makes conventional IG units as well as IG units in irregular shapes, sizes and configurations.
Developed by GED Integrated Solutions, Twinsburg, Ohio, the ATLAS production line is part of a project initially sponsored by the US. Department of Energy to help window manufacturers produce triple-pane IG units more affordably and without reconfiguring existing production lines. At the Carlisle facility, the ATLAS line enables PPG to produce triple-pane IG units at a significantly faster ra...
