HEGLA: new products and solutions for cost-optimization

2015-10-20 | Product news

At this year’s Vitrum, Hegla will be present with a series of products and solutions aiming at cost-reductions and process-optimization. Alongside the company’s tried and trusted machines for the processing of float and laminated glass, there will also be a new entry – the linear-driven RAPIDCUT KT, a newly-developed standalone-system for cutting float glass.

Precision and reduced wear through Hegla’s linear drive stand-alone system RAPIDCUT KT for float glass cutting
Float glass cutting
RAPIDCUT KT is a newly-developed linear-driven standalone-system for cutting float glass. Producing even higher acceleration values and even more exact cutting results, the new drive technology is low-wear and requires minimal maintenance. Managing Director of Hegla Manfred Vollbracht emphasizes the functionality and long-life of the construction: “Regardless of operation time, the cutting system retains high cutting precision.”
Special features from the former version Formline KT were retained to protect the technology. Loading requires only that a segment of the table is placed in an almost vertical position. The cutting bridge remains protected in a vibration-free parking position on the edge of the RAPIDCUT KT. The electro-mechanical drive manages the tilting motion for a smooth transition to protect the material. One advantage of the standalone solution is the continuous guide rails of the linear drive, which is attached to the sub-frame and is never tilted or divided. This maintains precise alignment of the drive components over the long-term according to Hegla.
As a special feature, a label applicator installed on the cutting bridge will be shown. The labels can be printed with internal processing information and then applied automatically to any position on the glass.
