This year, Glaston is celebrating 150 years of business, thanks to our ongoing track record of being an innovator, frontrunner and visionary thinker. Today, we’re moving beyond machinery manufacturing to automated processes. As one of the first to seize the opportunities of the digital age, Glaston focuses on artificial intelligence and cloud-based services to bring you smarter machines and higher performance to keep your business one step ahead.
At Eurasia Glass 2020, Glaston and Bystronic glass will show you more about the possibilities of these latest technologies. What easy steps can you take to tap into data from your equipment? Why does this translate into more uptime? How is it possible to produce better quality products? This data also enables you to stay on top of excellent customer service.
Putting digitalization into practice
The latest versions of Glaston flat glass tempering furnaces Glaston FC Series, RC Series and Jumbo Series incorporate high levels of automation and intelligent process control. Insight Assistant Pro gives the intelligent online process assistance, while Insight Reporting Pro allows to track all trends online and improve overall performance for long-term strategic planning. Another new feature is active edge control technology, enabled by intelligent cooling profiling that automatically adapts to your glass size, eliminating issues with edge lift. Vortex Pro convection system utilizes glass-size-sensitive convection profiling that actually follows the glass in the furnace, enabling higher loading efficiency with top quality.
Glaston ProL flat glass lamination line provides unprecedented flexibility for mixed production. The ProL convection heating chamber makes switching between glass types and different sandwiches easier than ever. The whole line, from glass handling to the latest PVB cutting technology, has been designed for flexible operation. Glaston ProL can also now be connected to the Glaston Insight ecosystem for monitoring furnace production data online and taking advantage of the ecosystem benefits.
Satisfying the toughest warm edge demands
The advanced architectural glass TPS® (Thermo Plastic Spacer) technology of Bystronic glass provides processors with end products to satisfy the toughest warm edge demands. Insulating glass units made with TPS® improve energy efficiency in buildings, increase durability and reduce energy costs.
A major advantage of TPS® is its production flexibility: the direct application of the Thermo Plastic Spacer onto the glass lite significantly simplifies the processes for I.G. manufacturers. The entire production mix can be manufactured on one line on the various Bystronic glass TPS® I.G. production lines – from individually configurable solutions via fast system solutions with shortest cycle times up to maxi size solutions for glass sizes up to 9 m in length.
Maximum yield and flexibility for automotive and display glass processing
B’CHAMP automotive glass pre-processing solutionsenable you to enhance efficiency in your daily production of windshields, sidelites, backlites or quarterlites. This means a yield greater than 98%, shorter cycle times, reaction-fast software to minimize downtime and an excellent cost-per-unit ratio.
B’BRIGHT display glass solutions are individualized production systems for automatic cutting, breaking, grinding and drilling of thin glass down to 0.4 mm in thickness. These thin glasses are used for monitors, TV-screens, mobile devices as well as for automotive glass displays. The machine configuration offers not only a process-optimized line layout, but also various expansion options using upgrade kits.
Glaston Matrix, the automatic windshield bending furnace for fast, efficient and high-performance windshield production, features a new windshield press for bending deep sags and wraps around corners to match the tightest tolerances. The new active convection heating enhances the production of windshields with conductive or heat-reflective coatings.
Glaston HTBS bending and tempering system covers a wide range of application areas in the automotive, appliance and furniture glass industries. With its flexibility and high end-product quality, the HTBS furnace allows you to meet evolving market requirements and process multiple glass sheets in one production load.
