sedak: automation in the production of IG units for low-E in oversize formats

2015-12-20 | Processing

More efficient production processes and constantly high quality standards: with a new insulating glass line, sedak, based in Gersthofen, Germany, further expands its leading position in the industry of oversized glass units. Machinery especially fabricated for the corporation, now enables sedak to industrially produce insulating glass units of up to 15 metres. “Manufacturing time has been reduced, and insulating glass units are therefore even more economical,” says sedak CEO Bernhard Veh.

For a long time sedak has been established as a technological pioneer for glass in oversize formats up to 3.3 x 15 metres. The manufacturer produces oversize insulating- and safety glass with almost any kind of treatment for the global market: processed, tempered, laminated, printed, coated, and processed further into insulating glass. Large insulating glass units have been fabricated manually in a time-consuming process – until now. The new insulating glass line automates the production process completely, leading to high quality standards and fabrication that can be reproduced. “The biggest advance is the radical reduction of production time. Insulating glass used to be fabricated manually by several qualified employees over various days. Now, the total production needs less than an hour,” explains General Manager Ulrich Theisen. Since producing insulating glass has thus become more cost-effective, sedak units are even more competitive. “Due to efficiently created designs and short construction times, oversize glass units were profitable before. This cost-effectiveness has now been increased even further,” says Ulrich Theisen.

Perfect aesthetics – high-speed production; same constant quality
The fully automated production line is unique in the world. Up to 145m long and with a load capacity of 450kg per linear meter, the insulating glass line is the largest around the globe. Another aspect besides efficiency and quality should not be disregarded: perfect aesthetic...
