Part 1 of 4 from the recent Glass Processing and Automation Days (GPAD) conference held in San Antonio, Texas.

At the end of March the annual Glass Processing and Automation Days (GPAD) event was held and several machinery manufacturers were able to present their products to an audience featuring some of the best glass fabrication operations in the world. In this on-going series we’ll share some quick clips of presentations from GPAD leading off with Michael Spellman from IGE Glass Technologies talking about the amazing innovation from FORVET.

The abstract for this presentation was:

Lights Out Automation

This is the goal of all custom glass fabricators. It has been said that there is no such thing as a good day in glass fabrication, only a degree of how bad it is. However, the major problem is with people. Today and for the foreseeable future, this will be the biggest problem facing our industry. The solution is automation and not just a robot here and there—total automation.

With total automation will also come software that maximizes and optimizes production, greatly reduces labor, handling and waste due to remakes (among many other things), while increasing production and profits. From storage through cutting and breaking to pre-processing and tempering / laminated processing, the future is here now.
