For.El. S.p.A.: The Automatic “SuperSpacer®” Applicator

For.El. Automatic “SuperSpacer®” Applicator applies the spacer profile “SuperSpacer®” in a completely automated mode all along the perimeter of panes for the production of double-glazing units.

Compared with traditional systems, the use of this type of profile allows the improvement of insulating properties of double glazing (the heat transmission coefficient due to the edge conductivity is reduced), eliminates condensation, ensures a better and instantaneous adhesion to the glass sheets.

In conclusion, the production of double-glazing units is faster and more flexible since the whole traditional process of frame production in aluminum or steel is eliminated. Therefore, beside saving time, this also results in a lower investment.

For.El. Automatic “SuperSpacer®” Applicator unwinds a strip from a bobbin and applies it directly on one of the two panes in order to form a complete frame all around the glass perimeter.

On the inlet conveyor, a sensor detects the glass thickness and automatically interacts (through a PLC logic) with the mechanisms of the mobile unit for the correct profile application.

During the “SuperSpacer®” application the pane is conveyed from the rear with a synchronic, horizontal movement by a mobile suction cup.

The bobbin of the spacer profile is placed directly on the operating head, allowing to carry out the “SuperSpacer®” application in a functional, reliable way through simplified devices and leading also to an excellent quality result, especially in corners.

The bobbin replacement is handy and fast.

The machine applies the spacer profile both on rectangular and shaped glasses (optional). It is highly modular so it can be set in pre-existing double glazing lines as well.
