FeneTech to launch FeneVision® LASER MARKING - Production without labels no longer a dream

Ohio/USA based FeneTech Inc, producer of the high quality and fully integrated FeneVision ERP software solution introduces its first major equipment development to the market place - the FeneVision Laser Marking system.

This technology allows a completely new and revolutionary method of efficiently marking and identifying any type of glass with special logos (tempering or customer logos), trademarks, freely definable text, or any other type of information either on the edge of the glass or in a visible area, depending on the application. Powered by an integrated Co2 laser device the FeneVision Laser Marking system can be used for any type of application and comes either as a vertical or horizontal conveyor system, including all necessary software control systems such as loading and offloading touch screen display stations.

The vertical Laser marking system which will be on display during GlassBuild America to be held September 30th - October 2nd in Atlanta, GA allows efficient marking and identification of each glass sheet directly after the breakout table at the cutting stage. At a comfortable working height the operator can position each sheet against a positioning stop onto the conveyor. After confirming the sheet by means of a touch screen monitor the automatic laser device marks all necessary and configured information onto each sheet of glass - in seconds. After this process each sheet is then automatically indexed on the conveyor to a position where an offloading monitor displays the necessary racking or slotting information to the second operator. This way the two operators after breakout are working well synchronized and each sheet can be automatically marked within the normal cycle time. The entire system is controlled by powerful FeneVision software and the FeneVision Laser Marking system can also be fully integrated with the main FeneVision ERP software solution.

The advantages include:

• Elimination of labeling errors

• Huge savings in expensive label costs

• Increased cycle times and smooth production flow

• The lasering process can be done without any additional labor

• Higher quality conforming completely to the certification standards by marking the correct and accurate information onto the glass

• Laser information is easily readable

• Can be used for any application: annealed, tempered, laminated or IG glass

• Freely definable and specific customer logos can be marked onto the glass

• Fast and efficient

• Reduces rejects at the cutting stage

• Better quality control

Ron Crowl, President of FeneTech Inc. comments: “For years FeneTech has been involved in custom machinery development – typically associated with a high level of software integration. We are excited to bring the FeneVision Laser Marking system to market and find it a natural extension to our innovative software products”.

Horst Mertes, Director of Global Sales adds: "This is a great system: I am a strong believer of this type of technology, especially after I have seen these systems in operation. Having to apply labels manually has always represented a problem since this manual system is prone to errors and labels have to be taken off again, in the case of tempering. Lasering all information directly at the cutting stage will eliminate these problems and will reduce costly errors. In addition this technology will open even more doors allowing us to promote our overall FeneVision ERP solution. Our goal is to become the most important and successful software supplier to the glass industry - world-wide"
