More than 30 years experience in the manufacture of assembly, gas fill and press robots

Bystronic glass installs its 1000th insulating glass pressNeuhausen-Hamberg (Germany),November 03, 2010.

This week, the Bystronic glass Technology Center Bystronic Lenhardt has installed its 1000th assembly press for insulating glass units. The press went to the southern Germany-based company Interpane, who received a design of the machine for the production of insulating glass units with a thickness of up to 100mm. For the production of one to four-sided stepped facade edges, this press is designed with an additional glass edge stepping at the lower edge of up to 100mm.

With its dynamic interplay of power and precision, Bystronic Lenhardt assembly presses have, over the last 30 years, established themselves in the market. Double and triple units in rectangular, and almost all model formats, can be assembled, pressed and optionally gas-filled. The 1000th automatic press machine that was installed – type ZPG TG – is equipped with a separate press plate for simultaneous assembly, pressing and filling with gas two insulating glass units in any format size and in any glass or frame construction.

Accurate and efficient

With its tandem operation, the assembly press is particularly efficient for insulating glass units with standard dimensions. With press plates connected in parallel, large-scale units can be finished in a single operation. A high-responsive sensor continuously monitors the gas filling process while the filling process is optimized by computer control. Argon is used as a standard filling gas; the press works optionally with other gases such as SF6, krypton, xenon and gas mixtures. The gas filling is done without any bore hole in the spacer frame. Different glass and profile widths can be processed in any order. The machine presses insulating glass units with plan parallel designed, warp resistant plates that are precisely adjustable and work in addition with an electronic press pressure control for insulating glass units with metal spacers.
