After the integration of CNUD-EFCO at the end of 2019, Grenzebach is now ready to present current developments for the hot and cold end on their more than 500 square metre booth B23 in hall 15:
- New annealing lehr with cooling capacity that is precisely adapted as required, flexible annealing point and significantly reduced energy consumption.
- Innovative dross box with motor-adjustable lift-out curve, optimized atmosphere separation and temperature distribution, as well as intuitive control and improved maintenance options.
- New conveyor technology for optimized glass production with direct drive, reduced number of components and simpler access to key components.
Solutions for the digitalization of flat glass production
Grenzebach is also addressing the digitalization of highly efficient flat glass production lines. The perfect solutions are provided with the digitalization eco-system SERICY, be it in cut-to-size optimization, in the digitalization of previously analogue information through the recorder app, or through targeted handling recommendations from an operator guidance system based on an AI-trained process model.
Foundation of Grenzebach Envelon adds solar-active façades to the business area

A new partnership for more efficiency in the glass industry
Since mid-2022, Grenzebach and the family-owned Nikolaus SORG GmbH & Co. KG, specialist for glass melting and conditioning technologies, have been working together in close cooperation. The two leading suppliers of glass production technology are combining their expertise in this partnership to provide their customers with even more comprehensive support. The core task of this cooperation is the provision of engineering services related to glass production and the development of turnkey projects. At Glasstec, the two companies will present their services shoulder to shoulder at neighbouring booths.
“After a break due to the pandemic, we are now very happy to be back in direct contact with customers and partners,” said Markus Gruber, Senior Vice President Business Unit Glass at Grenzebach. “At Glasstec, Grenzebach has the perfect platform to present ourselves as one of the leading manufacturers of production equipment for float glass manufacturing. We have a lot in store for you – stay tuned.”
