IOCCO’s R&D team has made a number of important technological changes regarding the process cycle, the vacuum control system during De-Airing of the glass, and, above all, with regards to energy savings.

These investments carried out by IOCCO to reach goals in terms of energy efficiency, optimization and control of the technological processes, are motivated by the the new expectations of government bodies and auto manufacturers; the latter requesting ever more coated, ultra-thin glass in larger sizes, mass produced by plants with ultra-high control and automation systems in line with the Smart Factory philosophy.

IOCCO has therefore responded to the challenge of one of its ‘historic’ clients, to develop part of a new fully automated plant capable of producing very high-tech auto glass in a completely automatic way without any human intervention, from the loading of the raw glass to the finished glass ready to be installed in the car.
