Ashton Industrial's stand is once more strategically positioned in the top corner on Hall 14, between the access portals of Hall 13 where most tempering furnace manufacturers are located, and Halls 15-17 which house general processing equipment, as well as machinery & materials for Insulating Glass.

Right alongside the Ashton stand are Bystronic, and Albat & Wirsam, with whom Ashton has co-operated on several major projects integrating automatic glass storage and recovery, optimised cutting, breaking, direct feed to the ASHTON seaming, edge deletion, laser marking and washing plant, and delivery directly to the load table of the furnace.

ASHTON INDUSTRIAL will demonstrate a fully working automatic seaming line at this year's show. The line seams random lite sizes from 6" x 12" up to 134 x 72" at the rate of 7-12 seconds per lite, including in-line edge deletion, laser logo marking and washing/drying.
Fully automated stackers will unload lites into racks at the end of the line.

The line on show is part of a major investment by Craftsman Fabricated Glass of Houston, Texas.
ASHTON fully automatic seaming has been selected by Craftsman as part of a multi-million Dollar expansion of their tempering facility. The tailor-made plant includes multiple, selectable operating modes that allow processing of rectangular and out-of-square lites, seaming and edge deleting and laser-marking of mixed random glass sizes at very high speed.
A special feature allows lites to be directed to either of two furnaces, and automatically buffers lites between furnace loads.

An ASHTON HWPRO high performance stainless steel washing and drying machine with a double drying zone and automatic glass thickness detection cleans and dries the lites at a thruput speed of 40ft/min.
In a deal between Steve Ashton, Bob Lawrence and Phillip lawrence, this part of the plant will be exhibited in action on Ashton's stand in Hall 14, from 9th to 13th November this year, prior to shipping to Texas.
