HEGLA: storage, handling and transport solutions at Fensterbau Frontale

Transport, storage, digital added value and shop-floor logistics at Fensterbau Frontale

Fensterbau Frontale marks the return of trade fair activities for the window and glass industry from 12 to 15 July 2022.

Germany’s HEGLA Group will be showcasing a whole host of storage, handling and transport solutions at their booth, alongside shop-floor logistics and the digital added value delivered by laser marking.

Robust, safe handling devices of German quality
The premiere was planned for 2020, but since Fensterbau Frontale did not take place that year, the devices are now being presented for the first time at the HEGLA booth – and back under their own brand name. With pillar-guided Isofix and chain-guided Hubfix, HEGLA is providing insight into handling solutions for windows, structural elements and glass.

“Our robust and user-friendly devices are produced in Germany,” said Senior Product Manager Holger Brechtelsbauer. “We have suitable and safe solutions for any application and are pleased that we can finally exhibit them.”

Vehicle attachments for glass and windows
Exterior racks are part of the basic equipment for a glass or window van. Further conversion options can be considered for a Renault Master or a Ford Transit Connect, for example.

“The requirements for logistics are increasingly stringent,” said Marc-Alexander Stachel, the future managing director of HEGLA Fahrzeugbau. “Together with our customers and vehicle manufacturers, we are constantly developing new solutions. Our most recent project led to a lightweight attachment for an electric vehicle.”

Up to 50 percent more capacity for long-length storage
HEGLA’s compact storage system for long-lengths promised up to 50 percent more storage capacity and all profiles with direct access. The cantilever arm shelves mounted on rails are side by side and do not require an operator aisle. Depending on the design, the system shelves are pulled out for loading and unloading or moved to create a handling opening between them.

“The material can be deposited or removed by direct access with no re-stacking required,” explained Hendrik Boche from HEGLA in Kretzschau. “A range of modules adds flexibility and enables the clearly arranged storage of single profiles that can be pulled out of the storage system from the front.”

Digital added value with laser marking
Digital added value is the focus at HEGLA boraident, whose Windowmarker provides a process for the unique, machine-readable marking of windows and doors. In line with customer needs, a logo, QR code, data matrix or barcode is added to the profiles via laser.

“As a first step, marking fulfils the purpose of manufacturer’s proof, which is an advantage for projects with various suppliers,” explained Dr. Thomas Rainer, Head of Development at HEGLA boraident. The spectrum of digital options depends on the user’s level of data integration.

“We look forward to meeting everyone in person in Nuremberg and having interesting conversations, exciting exchanges, and the opportunity to present products and solutions up close again,” Stachel added.
