BENTELER is known for its cross transfer technology, which includes the Grinding- Drilling-Washing lines for architectural glass, and Cutting-Breaking-Grinding lines for automotive glass production. BENTELER is now offering its customers an innovative solution with an optimzed drill and transport concept.
In commercial glass production lines, the glass that has to be processed, in this case drilling or milling, directly affects the upstream grinding line output. The New BENTELER system significantly increases the output capacity.
The new drilling and milling transport concept alows a piece of glass to by-pass the drilling machine, via an “overtake lane”, while the drilling machine continues to process an existing piece of glass. This means that glass pieces that do not require drilling can be ground without waiting for the drilling process for the previous piece of glass to finish. This also alows for minimum down time of the drilling machine as it does not have to wait for non drilled pieces to pass through before it starts its operation again. Even with fully automated loading, each piece of glass is recognized as needing to be drilled or not. The machine then automatically moves the glass pieces to the correct position for processing. This increases the output capacity of the line, thus improving the efficiency and flexibility of production.
BENTELER's motto is to make a perfect product even better. With that said, we have developed a production line which incorporates two drilling portals working independently of each other. With this Duplex configuration, the BENTELER machine can produce double the drilling and milling output capacity.
With these systems, BENTELER sets new standards in glass processing capabilities, and underlines its position as a system solutions supplier.
