Roughly 35 percent of the products manufactured by the group are exported.

LiSEC & arcon: A long-standing partnership based on quality and service
The collaboration between arcon and LiSEC began around 30 years ago with a LiSEC glass cutting system. Cooperation has become increasingly close over the years.

“The goal that we want to achieve with LiSEC products is very clear – to increase productivity and open up new opportunities for our company on the market. They say a machine is only as good as its service. Well if you need help quickly, advice is always available from LiSEC and the problem is resolved fast,” said Markus Biswanger, Plant Manager at arcon, about the collaboration with LiSEC. For arcon, LiSEC is a competent and dependable partner that impresses above all thanks to constant innovations.

New LiSEC laminated glass system enables jumbo formats
A highly automated two-storey LiSEC laminated glass line has recently been installed at arcon. “The reason we decided in favour of LiSEC when it came to the laminated glass line was the ability it gave us to process large units, as well as the top-class service provided for our systems in the past,” explained Biswanger.

“A major bonus with the new line is the FTC, which enables unmanned cutting of the foil and means that this process no longer needs to be performed manually. This is hugely advantageous for us,” Biswanger continued.

Looking to the future
In order to satisfy market requirements and conditions, arcon will be increasingly focussing on automation and offering on-trend products such as bird protection glass and stock sheets. arcon also recognised its responsibility for sustainability at an early stage. The company has already taken several steps towards a greener future and plans to further intensify these efforts in the coming years.
