systron: single source vertical glass processing and robot automation

One of the most popular automation options is the robot

The necessary reduction in cycle times, minimization of handling and the clearly noticeable shortage of skilled workers are increasingly moving the focus of the glass processing industry to automation. systron, known for vertical high-level glass processing machines, leads these trends offering automated, versatile solutions.

One of the most popular automation options is the robot. It does not require a lot of space, increases quality thanks to the minimization of handling, reduces rejects and optimizes planning. Robot cells specially tailored to the requirements of the flat glass industry were developed for the automatic loading of systron processing machines.

There are three types to choose from:

  • Individual solution with 2 pick-up stations for L-racks resulting in minimal cycle times for high-speed seaming systems and glass dimensions up to 3.5 x 2.5m.
  • Integrated unit in other systron automation solutions such as L-rack, storage or harp rack solutions.
  • Autonomous operation for removal of waterjet cut-outs.

Martin Klier, site manager at Glasprofi said about the experience with their systron solution, “Our proHD is running 24 hours a day, between 1:00 a.m. and 6:00 a.m. and between 2:30 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. even completely independently. Thanks to the buffer for 20 glasses in combination with the robot that removes any waterjet cut-outs and places them in the container, we can produce highly complex panes without the presence of an employee.

“Another important aspect is the increased occupational safety. Some of the water jet cut-outs are located high up or are very heavy, the robot facilitates our daily work tremendously.”
