It’s usually the habitual, mundane or unremarkable procedures that take too much time or make life at work more difficult. For HEGLA and HEGLA boraident, optimisation potential can be found in the warehouse, in handling processes, and in data provision.

This is the focus at the Fensterbau/Frontale trade fair, where visitors will come to be inspired and impressed by new solutions.

Robust handling devices for glass and windows ‘Made in Kretzschau’

Visitors interested in new products in the field of vacuum lifter technology can test suction devices ‘Made in Kretzschau’ at the HEGLA stand and examine them more closely. According to Hendrik Boche, Head of Sales at HEGLA in Kretzschau, Germany, the company is known for its robust, low-maintenance, and user-friendly technology. As he points out: “The client’s exact requirements for a device must be established before making a decision, in order to find a suitable, sufficiently flexible solution for its intended use.”

At the trade fair, HEGLA will be exhibiting its Hubfix F-G, the small, agile device used for window glazing and residual sheet handling, plus much more. The company is breaking new ground by presenting its vacuum lifter technology at the trade fair. Until a few weeks ago, the devices were sold under third-party trade names but now for the first time, HEGLA is showing this product line under its own name at a trade fair.

 

Space-saving storage systems for lengthy goods

More storage capacity in the same space, a better overview, and faster work procedures: these are the benefits of HEGLA compact storage systems for lengthy goods, which are also developed and produced in Kretzschau. The cantilever arm shelves mounted on rails are side by side and do not require an operator aisle. Depending on the construction in use, operators pull the smooth-running system shelves forward or move them sideways until a gap is created for loading or unloading.

The material can be deposited or removed by direct access – no re-stacking required. If only individual profiles are needed, they can be pulled out of the storage module at the front. “Up to 50 per cent more storage capacity in the same space can be realised with our compact storage systems,” said Boche. “All profiles are clearly arranged and immediately available without searching or time-consuming re-stacking.”

 

Laser treatment of window profiles and glass

The analogue and digital options for marking window profiles, product traceability, and data provision are the focus at HEGLA boraident. A high resolution makes it possible to generate logos in razor-sharp quality on the profile for marketing purposes or as proof of manufacture.

For large-scale construction products with multiple suppliers, this is particularly beneficial: such markings provide unique information as to which production facility a particular window came from. “If a QR or data matrix code is lasered onto the profile, production data can be acquired, linked, scanned and read out on a smartphone, for example,” said Dr Thomas Rainer to explain the digital applications available with laser marking. If required, a new, identical production order can be generated by pressing a button.

Trade fair visitors who are looking for a solution that provides small pieces of glass, panes or decorative elements with direct access will likewise find it at the HEGLA stand.

At last year’s Fensterbau, the company’s two-level harp rack with 2 x 50 compartments drew interest and inspired everyone who wanted to store and provide access to small formats up to 1,025 mm high and 1,300 mm long.

A removable numbered strip enables small pieces to be assigned to the relevant compartment.
