2014-08-20 | Representative organizations

At the upcoming edition of glasstec, German glass machinery manufacturers will be present with their new products and strategies. This article gives us an example of just two of these companies, and shows us how they are using their skills and expertise to continue to expand their global market leadership position.

VDMA: German glass machinery manufacturers expand their global market leadership position
German glass machinery manufacturers continue to expand their global market leadership position. Their efforts are backed by the German Engineering Federation VDMA, home to well more than 90 per cent of manufacturers.
Visitors attending glasstec, the world’s leading trade fair, which is held in Düsseldorf from 21 to 24 October 2014, can look forward to a dazzling display of innovations.

Thanks to new products, services and strategies, German glass machinery manufacturers are continuing to grow and develop their products. An example of this is Grenzebach, which, for some time, has been working intensively on developing from a conventional automation provider into a solutions provider of complete manufacturing plants. Commenting on this, Robert Luxenhofer, Sales Director for the display segment, says: “Our goal is to invest in new technologies and gain a deeper understanding of factory processes.” The company has successfully tackled its first steps on this path. For example, it has already been successfully marketing and selling systems for loading and unloading display coaters for TFT displays since 2009. Right now about 50 such systems are deployed across the globe. The future, however, belongs to organic light-emitting diodes i.e. OLEDs.
Displays manufactured with this technology offer countless advantages over TFTs, which are still common today, including a far sharper picture, a significantly wider viewing angle and sharply reduced energy consumption.
