New warm-edge spacer technology debuts at glasstec

At glasstec 2010, Lisec unveiled new equipment that builds a coil-fed warm-edge spacer directly on the glass.

Infinite Edge Technologies, the White Bear Lake, Minn., company founded by Eric Rapp, partnered with Lisec, Austria, to build the new IG warm-edge applicator featuring a flexible metal spacer made of ultra-thin stainless steel and a corrugated I-beam construction.

The new spacer creates superior compressive resistance using 50 percent less secondary sealant than most spacer technologies, according to the company. Guardian's Scott Thomsen, group vice president for North American flat glass operations, who was at the Lisec stand following his solar presentation, confirmed that the equipment was bound for the float glass manufaturer's Webster, Mass., fabrication plant and would be directed to its low-e customers and the residential window and door market.
