Hegla: shape cutting of laminated glass; advanced float cutting

2012-12-20 | Processing

At the recent edition of glasstec, German machinery manufacturer Hegla had on show its products for flat glass processing. Visitors could not only see these machines up and running in demonstration mode, but also watch live examples of what they can really do. The trade show was also an important occasion to let people know that the partnership with Bystronic glass is … “operating at all levels and yielding excellent results.”

Visitors to the Hegla stand at glasstec were given a rare opportunity to witness live flat glass machining. A cutting solution for laminated glass and another for float glass were brought along especially to the trade fair in Düsseldorf and were set up at the heart of the stand.

The ReMaster contributes towards the highly efficient use of materials in both. It stores remnant plates above the cutting system until such time as they can be used effectively for further cuts.

The SortJet Sorting System has been integrated to ensure a continuous flow of material from the float glass cutting line to the insulated glass production unit. The sheets of glass are collected from the intermediate store in the SortJet and are transferred to the insulating glass line in the correct production sequence and layer orientation as soon as all the panes for an insulated glass unit are available.
