On the occasion of its OPEN HOUSE 2018, Forel presented the innovative IG line “No Limits 9000” for large size formats, able to process insulating glass panels of up to 9 x 3.30 metres.

Over 250 guests from more than 30 Countries all over the World, for a three-day event dedicated to technological innovation in the glass sector, with special focus on the processing of large formats insulating glass units but also relative to the latest developments in the production of laminated glass, edging, drilling & milling, vertical cutting and automation inside the glass factory.

These are the numbers of the FOREL OPEN HOUSE 2018, held in Vallio di Roncade (TV) from 28 to 30 June, an appointment that gave the historical Treviso-based Company the opportunity to welcome many customers to its headquarters, to show the innovations applied to its machinery and discuss market and technological trends of the sector.

This year, the "highlight" of the event was the presentation of a massive line for the production of insulating glass, known as "NO LIMITS" 9000 line, an impressive system capable of producing insulating glass units up to 9 meters in length and 3.30 meters in height, usually manufactured for building façade applications. (The new “No Limits” Range can be configured to process IG panes up to 15 meters of length.)

"This is a line designed to respond to the growing demand for "large sizes" coming from the glass market" explains Fortunato Vianello, Founder and President of Forel "Despite being an exceptional product, it is born from the same philosophy from which all our machines were born, for more than 40 years now: understanding the customer needs, foreseeing the market trends, developing new solutions accordingly"

All participating entrepreneurs had the opportunity to take a closer look at the innovative solutions of Forel and also see them at work through a number of machinery demonstrations, including the processing of extra-jumbo sheets and the automatic handling and sorting system complete with infeed, buffer and outfeed stations.
