The 2018 Glass Build America trade show in Las Vegas September 12-14, will be a special event for Forel. During the trade show, Forel will display products that are new to the American market. Forel’s GlassBuild America booth #3127 will be the “booth of the debuts”.
On the “GlassBuild America Must See List” is Forel’s Sorting System (Art. SS). The Art. SS is the complete solution to optimize the handling and storage of glass within the production line. This will be the first time the Art. SS will be displayed in the USA. Composed by one or more mobile shuttles and multiple storage slots, the Art. SS is equipped with an innovative software for real-time inventory counts, allowing you to locate any glass lite at any time. This machinery significantly increases productivity and efficiency.
Another debut is Forel’s Drilling and Milling Machine (Art. DM); this high-tech, 6 axis controlled machine has two opposing electronic spindles to deliver high precision and fast production. The solid construction guarantees extreme accuracy and performance.
The new version of the Seaming Machine (Art. EG) will also be on display. The Art. EG has two operating heads capable of working simultaneously on two different pieces of glass, or can operate both heads onto one square or rectangle piece of glass. Thanks to the “self-learning” mode, the Art. EG can automatically acquires sizes for each piece of square or rectangular piece of glass.
“We are a growing industry leader, one that has proven to be able to successfully serve and retain its current customer base while at the same time obtain new clients,” explains Fortunato Vianello, founder and CEO of Forel.
“This has been possible thanks to the quality of our products, the reliability demonstrated, the investment made in our Service Department and, more generally, the philosophy that has always guided our business: to listen to our customers, to try to identify market trends, and to develop new solutions as a result.”
