Product category: Cutting technology for laminated safety glass (LSG)
ART. TT2503 TILTING TABLE
The TT2503 tilting table offers complete “functionality” for the laminated glass cutting line, ensuring safe handling of glass sheets requiring manual cutting or removal operations. The main feature of TT2503 is to tilt the glass from the vertical to the horizontal position with the aim of allowing the operator to safely process the presented glass sheet. A “balanced tilting” movement rotates the glass sheet while moving the bottom edge forward by means of special rollers installed on the bedplate. This presents the glass edge conveniently close to the operator. The handling of the glass sheet on the work surface is made easy by the installed electric fan driven air flotation system. This allows safe and easy positioning of all glass sheet sizes and thicknesses. Once the sheet has been tilted to the horizontal position (pre-scored by the laminated glass cutting line), the operator can perform the manual separation of the off-cut via the radiation heat lamp mounted on the front (lower edge) of the tilt table. This lamp is used to heat the PVB membrane to allow easy separation and splitting.
Art.SS is a complete solution for the optimization of the production through an automatic process of handling and storing within the glasswork. This system fits between the cutting lines and other production process. It is a highly configurable machine with modules for handling and storing to better satisfy the production requirements of the glasswork and to ensure a high deposit capacity. The system is interfaced with an arrissing (optional), plus a cleaning and quality control upstream which ensures the precise traceability of each piece and the certainty of store to stock material free from defects. An innovative software allows a real-time view on the state of orders. The SS is highly modular and the configuration can be adapted to existing production processes either of Forel trademark or other manufacturers. Due to glass handling being all automatic, the operators manual work is reduced to a minimum which means a drastic reduction of risks and greater safety in the work environment.
Product category: Grinding techniques for straight edges
ART. EM AUTOMATIC VERTICAL EDGER
The EM edging machine is designed for processing the edges of float and laminated glass sheets. It can perform edge arrissing, rough edge grinding and edge polishing. In addition to featuring selflearning functionality the machine is able to square the glass to the final required dimensions, it can be therefore be used in double glazing, tempering and or grinding lines. The machine is a solid structure featuring Forels innovative mono-block construction reflecting the philosophy and culture for quality build. This feature guarantees extreme accuracy, performance and capacity especially considering weight per linear metre. The operating head is equipped with a patented system that permits connection of securing devices close to the area of grinding. This ensures perfect centering with the grinding tool relative to the glass edge and the absence of vibration during machining. The grinding tool and glass are and remain perfectly aligned throughout the process, regardless of the glass length.
FOREL is an Italian company, world leader in the production of industrial automation for processing insulating glass units and flat glass. Established in 1976 by Fortunato Vianello, the company has two production facilities at Vallio di Roncade (Treviso) and Meolo (Venice) together covering a total surface area of 20,000 square metres. The company has a workforce of 150 people, backed by another 300 people in associated companies, partners and exclusive outside manufacturers. Together with the company, the sales force is now present on the 5 continents and has developed sales relations with over 55 countries, exporting the technological tradition and dynamism of Italian engineering. This industry success, with a leadership position, has resulted in an exponential growth of turnover, which in turn has sustained strong investments in Research and Development, always a primary concern for FOREL, to the extent that the company is called “supplier of competitiveness” because of its ability to present strongly innovative projects, thereby preceding market trends.
