Warm Edge insulating properties, which bring important economical savings, are the reasons for the growing success of this kind of profile. As glassworkers know, the bending of plastic profiles is an extremely delicate operation which requires precision and attention.
Forel has developed and upgraded its Automatic Profile Bender (Art. PBA632) to cater to different needs and typologies of material. The Profile Bender can now support the profile during processing, thanks to the special Smart Arm (an exclusive Forel patent). The arm works to avoid the risk of breaks or deformations when working with larger sizes. This solution offers high productivity, quality and no risks of damage to the material.
Specific improvements have been developed to obtain a better bending process which offers two different results:
1. the classical internal fold;
2. An internal fold of 90°, visually identical to ‘corner keys’ (but without thermal dispersion in the corner) or to the welding junction (but with faster production).
Bending calibration is managed by specific software, which ensures complete control and precision of the angles.
