Glasstec 2012: LiSEC Convinced with Innovations

From 23rd to 26th October, the worldwide leading trade show for the flat glass industry—glasstec—opened its doors in Düsseldorf/Germany to 1,162 exhibitors and about 43,000 visitors from 86 different countries.

Under the slogan 'All From One', LiSEC took this opportunity to present a number of recent developments and innovations to an international audience of experts. The trade show has turned out to be a great success for LiSEC.

A striking performance at the show

By tradition LiSEC's stand - with a total surface of 2,600 square metres - was the largest at the show. With a huge effort LiSEC set up a fully operational 'factory' to make operations at the show representative. The international audience was very impressed with the live machine demonstrations given. "Visitors showed great interest in our products and many of them signed orders or made serious enquiries. Customers had precise ideas and addressed very specific questions to us, it couldn't have been any better. The show was a total success," the new CEO of LiSEC, Mag. Othmar Sailer, appreciated the company's performance at glasstec.

Trend-setting innovations

Particularly the new solutions for glass cutting and for the manufacture of triple glazing units of highest quality, the new system for laminated glass production, as well as various automation solutions generated great interest amongst the visitors.

Visitors are impressed with the daily 'live' demonstrations

One of the highlights was the FlyOver loading crane for glass cutting machines. The intelligent one-row design of the suction bridge allows it to move diagonally above the entire glass storage area when no glass is being transported. In this way, the bridge will automatically follow the shortest path to the next storage rack, which minimises cycle times and keeps cutting machines working at full capacity. This LiSEC innovation offers another revolutionary advantage, besides the significant time savings achieved: It renders costly remnant plate storage systems obsolete by transporting remnants back to the glass storage area and by using the storage racks as remnant plate racks.

The fully automatic automatic insulating glass line for the industrial manufacture of triple glazing units in an optimum cycle time included the new multiple spacer applicator for different types of flexible spacers, and introduced an improved sealing process that significantly enhances the quality of glazing units.

Visitors are impressed with the daily 'live' demonstrations

Within the system for the manufacture of laminated safety glass, LiSEC exhibited the energy-saving pre-lamination furnace and, for the very first time, a 'non-contact' horizontal washing system. The latter is a pioneering innovation especially in processing glass sheets with sensitive surface coatings.

The operational availability of individual glass processing machines is a key success factor not only in production lines, but also with stand-alone equipment. LiSEC therefore presented a number of automation solutions intended to maximise the machines' availability across their lifetime but also assist operators in maintenance. Furthermore, the expert in glass machinery showcased their comprehensive range of products for glass edge processing, laminated glass cutting and spacer production, and introduced the after sales support and project planning services they offer.

Artfully arranged thin glass

Within the show's focus on glass art, LiSEC displayed an eye-catching, artistic glass sculpture: a 'glassflower' with 9 petals of cold bent 2x2 mm laminated thin glass. With a bending radius of three metres and a diameter of five metres, the sculpture impressively demonstrated the many possibilities of tempered thin glass. The artwork was designed and constructed by LiSEC in cooperation with Arup Glass Group, and all the glass used to build it was manufactured and processed with LiSEC machines.

Besides exhibiting the most recent innovations, LiSEC also used glasstec as a platform to demonstrate their reliability as a business partner - an asset that is primarily based on the company's stable financial situation. "Our history is a sound basis not only for maintaining the success we've had but also for further enhancing it to our customers' benefit. We now have a clear ownership structure, a professional Supervisory Board team and acceptance by the members of the Lisec family. In addition to the company's success story, these offer a strong foundation in organisational terms and allow us to look ahead optimistically," Mag.Othmar Sailer outlined the positive prospects for the company. With the focus on innovation, on the company's further development in international markets and on enhancing quality and customer service, he set the course for the years ahead.
