However, in light of the current difficult economic situation, no one quite expected it to be the huge success that it was: this was something that simply could not have been foreseen.
Without doubt a decisive factor in glasstec 2004 being so successful for Bystronic was the fact that Bystronic, in its role as a global supplier of total solutions for the economical, application-engineered manufacture of architectural and automotive glass, has an excellent reputation internationally.
With its innovative system solutions, technologies and services for integrated glass applications, the brand stands for lasting customer benefit, reliability and the best products on the market.
Bystronic operates globally, with customer advice and services available locally.
This year at the Bystronic exhibition stand in Hall 14 the following new or advance developments were the focus of interest:
- smartverticut Innovative vertical shape cutting machine for float and low-E glass cutting, subplate by subplate, in combination with the automatic subplate feeder for optimum production processes
- smartlamicut Entry-level solution for laminated glass cutting
- firsttps - TPS® warm edge insulating glass production line with the integrated component firstarris, an automatic vertical arrissing machine for rectangles and shapes with straight edges
- spacerbender Fast spacer bending machine for unfilled aluminium profiles
Once again this year Bystronic presented its product innovations under real production conditions as part of 5 daily demonstrations. These presentations were supported by a professional presenter and the entire demonstration was shown on plasma screen displays, so that every visitor to the stand could see the details of the system at close hand.
