Bystronic Glass: A New Generation Of Machines For Automotive Glass Preprocessing

With its champ’speed line , Bystronic glass is launching onto the market a brand-new generation of machines for preprocessing automotive glass.

The line enables cutting, breaking, grinding and drilling of automotive glass with the utmost precision and flexibility. “The champ’speed line is currently the fastest machine of its quality on the market”, says Jean-Philippe Chételat, Sales Manager for the Automotive Glass Sector at the Technology Center Bystronic Maschinen AG in Switzerland.“We have listened to our customers’ demands and now – with the champ’speed line – we have adapted our system solution for preprocessing automotive glass for the latest market requirements”, explainesJean-Philippe Chételat.

All the modules in the machine are individually matched to each other, the movements can be separately configured and, for example, optimized with regard to cycle time. The extremely stable, vibration-free process means that customers can work for many years with a consistently high quality level.

Customized, Intelligent State-of-the-art Technology  
“With a repeat accuracy of up to 99 percent, the champ’speed line outshines every other machine available on the market”, the Sales Manager is pleased to report. As all the machine parts are within easy reach, working with the new system is an extremely ergonomic process. The heart of the system is the cutting and breaking unit. The cutting module contains a maintenance-free AC servo direct drive. Thanks to faster acceleration, it operates extremely dynamically with simultaneous maximum cutting accuracy. While doing so the machine automatically optimizes its speed to match the shape to be cut. Precutting of the glass lite along with shape cutting and breaking is conducted in two process steps and therefore enables parallel processing. This in turn results in a definitive cycle time advantage along with high productivity. In addition to this, the use of a special, maintenance-free breaking tool guarantees perfect quality of the edge breaks.       


Maximum Grinding Standard

The grinding module can simultaneously use two grinding wheels enabling a fast bit change. “This means that, for example, automotive glass can be ground in different edge radii, without any need to change the tool in between”, explains Jean-Philippe Chételat. As with the cutting module, the grinder module’s rotating table is equipped with a maintenance-free CNC direct drive that operates with extreme precision without any play. Additional technical advantages are the automated system for height adjustment of the grinding wheel and a new, efficient cooling system, which ensures that the glass remains dry during processing.

Tool change at the champ'speed line 

With its champ’speed line, Bystronic glass provides not only a machine for preprocessing automotive glass but also one for processing glass in solar technology as well as for domestic appliances. “As market leader we guarantee the highest production and quality standards providing maximum productivity, outstanding performance, stringent tolerances in grinding precision and perfect edge-processing technology”, says the Sales Manager.  

Living for the Future
Alongside the technical advantages the champ’speed line has an additional benefit: 20 percent of the energy used is recycled back into the production process. While the system’s drives are braking, Bystronic glass converts kinetic energy into electrical energy and feeds it back into the network. This way, Bystronic glass upholds its “Preprocessing of Automotive Glass” core competence in respect of sustainability, conservation of resources and energy saving, while also systematically committing to the “Living for the Future” ecological concept as introduced at the glasstec 2008.
