Lumiglass is one of the largest manufacturers of laminated safety glass in the Middle East. With the installation of the new pre-laminating unit - the largest machine of its kind in the region - the company's laminated glass production capacity has increased to 35,000 square metres per month, which is nearly twice its previous capacity.
"In adding this state-of the-art machine to our equipment line-up, Lumiglass increases its laminated glass capacity by almost 100% at a stroke," said Sultan Al Zarif, General Manager of Lumiglass Industries. "The new machine will help us meet the rising demand for laminated glass, and allow us to boost our competitiveness by delivering superior quality, low-emission laminated glass products."
The new pre-laminating unit can produce laminated sheets with areas of 2,600mm in width, 5,500mm in length, and approximately 4mm to 100mm in thickness. It is designed to handle soft coatings, low-emission glass, temperable glass, and photovoltaic solar cells, among others.
“This move by Lumiglass underlines the confidence being seen throughout the Middle East glass industry” says Derek Burston, Marketing manager, Gulf Glass 2011.
“With bookings at a record level for next year’s event – the first time we have held the exhibition in Abu Dhabi – the indicators across the whole region are extremely positive. We also have, for the first time, a large-scale participation from Egypt”.
“Abu Dhabi, and the Gulf Glass 2011 show, is positioning itself as the premier location and event for all aspects of the glass industry in the region”, adds Burston.
