Lumiglass Industries has reportedly almost doubled its production capacity of laminated glass thanks to the installation of a state-of-the-art pre-laminating unit from Germany-based global automotive supplier Benteler AG. Lumiglass, a subsidiary of Glass LLC, which is wholly owned by Dubai Investments PJSC, is one of the largest manufacturers of laminated safety glass in the Middle East. The company“s laminated glass production capacity has, with the installation of the new pre-laminating unit – the largest machine of its kind in the region – increased to 35,000 sq.m. per month, almost double its previous capacity. “In adding this state-of the-art machine to our equipment line-up, Lumiglass increases its laminated glass capacity by almost 100% at a stroke,” said Sultan Al Zarif, general manager of Lumiglass Industries. “The new machine will help us meet the rising demand for laminated glass, and allow us to boost our competitiveness by delivering superior quality, low-emission laminated glass products.” “At Lumiglass, we always seek to be at the leading edge of glass development in the Middle East. Our strong focus on innovation, coupled with our constant upgrade of equipment and facilities, allows us to produce and supply a wide selection of high-performance laminated glass to customers around the region,” Al Zarif added. The new pre-laminating unit, which is designed to handle soft coatings, low-emission glass, temperable glass, and photovoltaic solar cells, and more, can produce 2,600 x 5,500mm, and thicknesses of approximately 4-100mm. Lumiglass“ also has one of the world“s largest Tamglass autoclaves, a fully automated Robotech pre-processing line, digital ceramic frit screen-printing, and two Tamglass continuous-carrier bending furnaces.
