Forel: “High Tech” IG line with thermoplastic spacer

Forel's “High Tech” IG line with thermoplastic spacer was shown in 2021, at GlassBuild America and Vitrum

Forel‘s “High Tech” IG line with thermoplastic spacers is a completely automated system managed by a single workstation (following the principles of industry 4.0), guaranteeing optimum precision and productivity.

Making its début in this solution is the new Art. TA applicator, designed to perfectly position the product on the basis of two key principles: productivity and ease of use. The coupling press with gas filling Art. AP has been enriched with a dedicated option for processing IG units with thermoplastic spacers. In any case however, this solution can also process panes with a rigid frame.

The final step is entrusted to the Art. SR “High Tech” sealing robot, which has already earned widespread appreciation for the production of rigid and flexible spacers and has also proved perfectly suitable for thermoplastic products.

The process is completed with the innovative automatic unloading system Art. GU, developed to suit the specific nature of this type of insulating glass, but useful also for IG units with traditional or flexible spacers, as a new resource of integrated logistics inside the glassworks.
