Fully automated: Every pane knows its path

The machines no longer set the pace alone. Increasing automation is expanding the sphere of influence of software-controlled intralogistics. Planning and optimization software is taking the place of a production manager who plans and tracks the route of the panes through the production. The software manages, controls, and monitors the production processes and provides ongoing status feedback. The pacemaker is the sorting buffer, which makes it possible to combine conflicting priorities in production. How does today's unmanned production work?

Key Element Foil Storage

The foil is the core of the laminate and gives the laminated glass its special properties. Depending on the desired end product, the foil must have the necessary thickness, colour, transparency and function (sound insulation, translucency, etc.). The product portfolio thus determines the layout of the foil warehouse and the optimal organisation of the pre-laminate.

How you can recognise a high quality and safe glass laminate product

Safety standards are constantly rising in all possible areas in which glass is used or installed – which is the reason why lamination is also becoming increasingly important in the glass industry. However, due to the complexity of this process, it is crucial to know all about the challenges and stumbling blocks that arise in order to act or react respectively.

Why is pre-lamination the heart of the lamination system?

Pre-lamination is often referred to as the heart of a laminating system in the industry. And rightly so, because the lamination process takes place during pre-lamination to a large extent, where the foil is heated up and then pressed or bonded to the glass using rollers. However, the air that is still trapped is pressed out of the glass package during the course of pre-lamination. This followed by the autoclave process, during which the laminate foil is melted under heat and high pressure and finally bonded.

Cost effectiveness with laminating products: what you need to consider

During times when the number of suppliers in all industries (and also the glass industry, of course) is steadily increasing and the market is becoming more and more transparent at the same time, the importance of cost-effective production for higher profit margins increases tremendously. Furthermore, individual representatives of the glass industry can gain a certain competitive edge over the competition in this way and develop it accordingly.
