Bystronic announces launch of a new high-speed TPS warm-edge I.G. line

Bystronic recently announced that it has commissioned at its North American Headquarter a high-speed insulating glass line, ideally suited for the residential IG manufacturer.

The line uses the company’s unique and patented TPS (Thermoplastic Spacer) ultimate warm-edge spacer concept, but configured for a nominal productivity of 1,200 high performance I.G. units per shift. Similar to the popular multi-purpose TPS lines in operation worldwide, this high-speed line requires only an absolute minimum of personnel, usually not more than two or three operators for the entire I.G. production.

“So far and with only few exceptions, the benefits of TPS, which include high thermal performance, unmatched durability and exceptional aesthetics, have been available only to the commercial I.G. manufacturer. This high-speed line now offers the same desirable attributes to the residential window market,” said Marcel Bally. “We installed this line at our new facility in Hauppauge on Long Island, New York, to make it available for inspection by any and all interested companies and individuals, anywhere in North America. Anybody with an interest in truly high performance and high quality I.G. should consider having a standing invitation to come to Bystronic and see this line in operation.”

The line as installed at the Hauppauge facility operates fully automatically and is complete, including a high-performance washing machine, the “vision master” electronic scanning and inspection system, the computer controlled TPS applicator, a dual gas-fill and press station, and a two-head CNC secondary sealing robot. The line is capable to produce rectangular as well as shaped units, in sizes from 7.5 X 13.75 to 63 X 150 inches, from .25 to .75 inches air space, with or without argon filling.
