Pujol 100 PVB+: ten years of a landmark of the laminated glass industry

Pujol 100 PVB+ was designed and developed to help professionals in PVB lamination

In the year 2011, was celebrating the centenary of the company, the engineers received the premise, and the challenge, of developing a reliable, flexible lamination solution capable of adapting the production of laminated glass to the curves of the market, without the need to increase the cost per unit and also maintaining a stable profit margin. That was the key due the macroeconomic conditions; companies were then severely hit by a major crisis in all markets, similar to the one we are experiencing today.

The proposal launched to the market, was the Pujol 100 PVB+. The good reception was the best guarantee; since its launch more than 50 units have been sold around the world.

Pujol 100 PVB+ was designed and developed to help professionals in PVB lamination and to avoid having fixed expenses, especially energy, being able to laminate without installing a climate-controlled room, without calendering and reducing the total investment in machine. The system, in addition to complying with an ecological standard that makes the deduction such as R + D / IT viable, avoids unnecessary risks, such as explosion, something that can happen with the autoclave system.

When glass processors uses EVA films, the oven works with a high-speed Fast Curing system that allows to carry out productive cycles every 40 minutes at full load, achieving productions of more than 1,000 m2 per day depending on the model.

Pujol 100 PVB+ incorporates Pujol e-Connect as a standard, this is an advanced system that has made possible to adapt the Pujol ovens to Industry 4.0. In addition, it offers interesting functionalities: real-time connection to the oven, the possibility of receiving remote technical assistance and secure connection from any external device with internet access (mobile, tablet or computer) or having a traceability of the production process. With these characteristics, glass processors will have greater control at all times of what happens with the oven, achieving greater comfort and peace of mind.

Pujol 100 PVB+ provides even higher levels of production, incorporating an assembly line that has been developed to automatize the manufacture of EVA/PVB laminated glass. Thanks to this, the costs are reduced and the quality of the laminated products is increased by squaring them automatically without the operator making a great effort. The line can also be fully adapted to the characteristics or the layout of the workshop through three possible configurations. This versatility makes it easy for any glass processor to install a line of unmatched features.

Hornos Industriales Pujol knows that each client has unique needs. The company’s engineers have worked on interesting projects over the last ten years, among them there are different unique cases that deserve to be highlighted. An example is one of the last installations, in Val y Val, in Mexico, with a glass processor company with a great tradition and experience. Here Pujol opted for a Pujol 100 PVB+ oven equipped with an extra bending chamber, thanks to which, together with the great benefits of the oven, the client has been able to carry out important projects.

To date, three of Pujol’s clients have expanded their facilities by repeating the purchase of a Pujol 100, one of them has 6 Pujol 100 PVB + ovens in their facilities. These are clear examples of the reliability of Pujol 100 PVB + and the current growth it is achieving.
