Rohmer + Stimpfig at glasstec 2008: Automatic pre-processing lines for Flush Windows; Twin spindler for shaped glass edging

Encouraged by the big success of glasstec 2006, R+S presents this year again several new developments and revolutionary innovations, which might help you to further increase your market share.For this purpose R+S strikes a new path.

CSS is the new catchword where the experts have to reorientate themselves. Customized System Solutions does not only mean the project planning and delivery of machines – it is more than that. It covers the individual supervision and support of the customer including his market in the whole process chain. Every customer receives with CSS “more than just machines” an optimum of assistance, care and support tailored to his needs. Support that starts with the market investigation and that is far in excess of the start of the commercial production at his plant. Challenge R+S and get surprised.

If you operate in the field of glass processing, especially for shaped glass, then you shouldn’t miss out on getting information on the latest innovations at Rohmer + Stimpfig’s booth in Hall 15 A 25. No matter whether you want to cut or grind glass, or have to work on the edge – grinding or polishing it – and especially no matter how complicated the form, the shape may be, R+S has an individual, custom-made solution for every application.

The solution that will deliver you optimum efficiency. Use the know-how and technology R+S can offer you. From the stand-alone system that has to be loaded manually to the fully automated line, where all you have to do is exchange the glass rack, all models are available.

At our booth A 25 in hall 15 we will show you the following innovations:


Fully automatic pre-processing line

(Cutting, Non-Template Breaking, Twin Table Edging)

In the field of pre-processing of fully automated lines for, e.g. the car and vehicle industry, the new WSL with multi-channel cooling system, tool packages, servicing and handling features that considerably improve long-term use and performances and allow the system as a whole to be more efficiently designed.

In comparison to many other suppliers, we do not use any templates in the breaking area up to 8 mm; what is standard with us is the twin table grinding and polishing area with two separately controlled grinding tables so that the spindle is always in operation and we are able to process inner radii and internal cutouts where other companies have to offer additional machines. Naturally, we have separate cutting and breaking areas, powered independently of each other.

Fully automatic pre-processing for inner cut outs (e.g. Flush Windows)

(Cutting, Breaking, Non-Template Breaking, Taking out, Twin Table Edging)

At the WSL we have included the new and revolutionary IAS system. This can be used to break out internal cutouts of any shape by means of a special thermal process. These cutouts are then suitably ground and polished using downstream edge-processing machines. This development will mainly be used in the car industry for windows within windows (FLUSH WINDOWS) as well as frames for flat screens.

At this new concept neither do we use water jet nor laser cutting systems. The complete endproduct is process on just one line only. Every approx. 50 sec. one finished product (ground inside and outside) leaves the machine.

In contrast to the usual methods to date, this system can be integrated in any fully automated production line or to be used as stand-alone unit, too.

Twin spindler for shaped glass edging

In the field of edge processing, we will also show you the improved, globally proven twin spindle machines, the high-performance grinding machine RS 8.14 L/RS 89.01 L.

You can, of course, see for yourself live the 8-fold loading, the multi-channel cooling system, the grinding and polishing packages, the unique in-line production, the sharpening and redressing facilities for grinding and polishing wheels, loading in the dry area outside the processing zone, the tool exchange and service station outside the wet area – as well as other refinements that make production, handling and servicing a lot more efficient.

The R + S product programme comprises fully automated lines and individual stand-alone machines and components for loading, handling, cutting, breaking, grinding and polishing, as well as the drilling/milling of flat and curved glass and appropriate edge inspection systems. In addition you will be convinced by Customized System Solutions. For more information, check out or
