Great success for Hegla at Glasstec 2012

As Glasstec shuts its doors once again the eyes of the glass industry have focussed on innovations, changes for the better and also gained a glimpse on how to improve both production standards and profit margins.

For Hegla, a new era dawned at the international exhibition as it became the launch pad for new product developments but additionally provided the ideal arena to show a new corporate market direction. Glasstec was used as the pivotal platform to demonstrate the cooperation partnership of Hegla and Bystronic glass in full force. When two industry giants with such recognised pedigrees and standards of excellence come together under one roof it will inevitably send a powerful message of strength to the industry on a global level and this was well received.

Glasstec 2012 enabled the two companies to reinforce their ability to provide complete solutions to the glass industry in a positive manner which clearly impressed visitors, who embraced the new co-operation with enthusiasm.

For Hegla, the opportunity to demonstrate the latest in cutting technology Glasstec proved a successful showground. There were many new items on show such as Linear Drive Shape Cutting Laminated Cutting Table and Laser Marking Technology mounted on the float cutting bridge of the Optimax LES float cutting table with loader purchased by Oakland Glass.

The laser brings substantial time saving benefits in a number of ways including internal efficiency as nothing can be lost.

If errors do occur within any batches then these can quickly and simply traced and found which speeds up resolving issues very quickly.

With consumer demand increasing and new legislation on CE Marking to be introduced in the UK, there is considerable pressure on manufacturers to accommodate changes into manufacturing procedures. The joint co-operation of Hegla and Bystronic glass now provides the industry with unique, cost effective solutions that will improve on-site efficiency all of which is now globally recognised.

Steve Goble, Managing Director Hegla UK comments, “The Glasstec arena has been very positive where visitors clearly have been impressed with product innovations. Many key industry players have shown a great interest in the range of products on show and the Laser System mounted to the cutting table far exceeded our expectations with regard to the UK market and various applications.

The importance of this event was to show the evident benefits not only of the equipment but also of our association with Bystronic.

This has been taken very well as investors can see the advantages and have complete reassurance that is associated with the excellence of German engineering and the integrity of both companies.”
