B’SPEED - Produce Triple and Quadruple units with the shortest possible cycle time
The B’SPEED is a quick line for insulating glass production that produces triple and quadruple units in the shortest possible cycle time.
More details ...

With the B’SPEED, the work steps are ideally designed for the production of triple and quadruple units and allow the quickest possible cycle times. As a result, the B’SPEED is able to produce triple insulating glass in the same time it takes other lines to produce double units.

Three production steps are decisive regarding quick production of triple insulating glass units:

Application of the spacers

The application of the spacers is performed by two tps’applicator components arranged one after the other. In order to achieve the maximum throughput, the thermoplastic TPS® warm edge spacers are applied to the second and third glass plates of the triple insulating glass units almost simultaneously. This ensures the continuous and quick supply of glass plates with spacers.


Gas-filling of the spaces between the lites

Innovative assembly robot for quick filling and pressing of the units for triple insulating glass production: The speed’assembler is the first unit to simultaneously fill both spaces between the lites with inert gas for triple units. This is beneficial to the cycle time as it reduces the filling time for each unit by half.


Sealing the units

The speed’sealer enables quick and flexible sealing of triple insulating units in two cycles. The dynamic mixer provides a maximum flow rate and so consequently, the highest application speed. This ensures that no equipping times occur to exchange nozzles when producing units with alternating or asymmetric spaces between the lites.

B’VARIO TPS / B’JUMBO TPS - System solutions for insulating glass with thermoplastic spacer TPS®
The B’VARIO TPS and B’JUMBO TPS are individual production solutions for all types of orders providing unique versatility.
More details ...

The thermoplastic spacer TPS® is applied directly onto the glass by machine from a single drum as part of the insulating glass production. The width of the spacer can be changed as desired during operation without any time loss. Separate production processes for the sawing, bending, connecting, desiccant filling and butylation are no longer needed, saving both time and money.

  • Eliminates the need to stock different spacer profiles and connectors
  • Suitable spacer is always available
  • No offcut, no dirt, no waste
  • Production mix manufacture on a single line
  • Removes the need to split orders into standards and specials
B’VARIO FLEX / B’JUMBO FLEX - System solutions for insulating glass with flexible spacers
The B’VARIO FLEX and B’JUMBO FLEX are solutions for automatic production of gas-filled and sealed insulating glass units with flexible spacers.
More details ...

The flexible spacer is applied directly on to the vertical glass plate. The dynamic drive guarantees an extremely high level of accuracy during this process.

  • Synchronisation of the frame production with the insulating production process
  • Production sequence of rectangular or shaped formats as desired
  • Non-contact transportation of the glass plates via air cushion support walls



The flexspacer’twinapplicator twin applicator for the non-interrupted production of insulating glass units with different spacer widths



The flexspacer’applicator with storage for four spacer material reels and integrated air drying for the quick change of reels, even during operation



The cornersealer for the secure sealing of corners via fixing with tape strips as well as additional butyl sealing

Butyl application

Processing of T-spacers, FGS (Flexible Glass Spacer) and other spacers via the application of polyisobutylenes on the edge of the spacer on both sides
