Product Builder

The Product Builder is a powerful design solution for the production of parametric constructions with extruded profiles like fire doors, sun protection, balustrades, conservatories. It is a solution for manufacturers that do not use calculation or drawing software, allowing constructions with profiles to be made as parametric models based on scripts. The models allow the manufacturer to generate machine data, barcode labels, DXF drawings, numerous reports and, if necessary, give feedback to the manufacturers ERP system. From Product Builder the production lists are sent straight to the machine work floor enabling focus on the following tasks.

Using extremely powerful scripting models and algorithms, this software provides endless possibilities when it comes to executing design ideas and turning them into drawings and production lists.

Industries that produce large numbers of similar but customized products can benefit from using our Product Builder, though the ease of implementation and execution is a great tool for manufacturers of any size.

UNILINK Platform

UNILINK is an independent automation platform for production on CNC machines in the industry for aluminum, steel and PVC profiles used for doors and windows or any other profile industry.

Our platform includes a machine independent, vector based, 3D macro programming interface designed to be user-friendly, fast and capable of managing huge macro libraries.

There is a list editor to view and edit your production data. The UNILINK platform can import data from any construction software and export to any brand CNC profile milling and cutting machine. 

The software contains functionalities like tool assignment, anti-collision and bar optimization. The user creates all complex production lists with a maximum of automation, determining from the office if a machine is capable of running a job without collisions and receiving a visual report of the tool assignment before starting the machine. The machine operator only handles the profiles, allowing the machine to work continuously.

Additionally, we offer a powerful optimization module that ensures a minimal use of material. Any excess can be easily integrated in the following optimization. The same goes for damaged profiles; for example, damaged spots on bars can be detected and cut out by the optimizer.

UNILINK provides partners a comprehensive toolbox for managing tasks within their machinery, even multiple brands of machines, different construction software or different companies. We will create the right solution and grow together as loyal partners in the art of automation.

A+W Smart Companion for Fenestration Manufacturing

Barcode scanners are an indispensable tool for window and door manufacturers. Smartphones and smart devices are playing an increasingly important role, when equipped with the A+W Smart Companion App for the A+W Cantor software solution. Smartphone cameras allow barcodes to be scanned directly and to display additional information. The app supports materials management and requests, dynamic forms (the customer customizes their own scenarios in Production), and increases digitalization. The intuitive user interface requires no training, which helps save time and money.

A+W Smart Companion for A+W Cantor is currently available for Production and Stock.

In the dispatch area of production, the app can book finished elements and accessories onto racks while also assigning them to an area. This allows several elements to be scanned simultaneously in so-called continuous mode (camera mode).

As a mobile info terminal (read mode), the app provides support by displaying, for example, the production status of individual order items. This provides information at all times during production.

The stock area allows goods receipt, material transfer postings, and inventory postings to be completely processed via the app. For example, an overview of all counted items can be displayed and found directly in A+W Cantor.

AE2250 Low-E CARD +

The AE2250 Low-E CARD+® offers a replaceable battery design that can be used indefinitely.  This "+" model will differentiate if the low-emissivity coating is on Surface 1, Surface 2, or indicate if the glass is uncoated (Clear). There are no metal contacts, and the product can be used to test all types of glass. Therefore it is safe to use on all glass, even if the glass is dirty, has a label or has other insulating layers on it. For orders of 100 pieces or more, you can brand the Card with your company logo and sales message. Now you can offer your own branded card for use in the factory or to give to customers.  

TX Precision

TX Precision is the WALCO® industrial laminator for high precision bubble-free and wrinkle-free protective film application.

Running both integrated in an automatic line or as a stand-alone equipment, TX Precision is suitable for any production.

The machine can operate on a wide range of flat surfaces: Glass, Wood, Metals, Laminates, Plastic Sheets, Panels and many others.

Its High Precision automatic cutting system allows a net cut fitting your needs: exactly at the edge, or negative (inside the edges), and even positive.

Thanks to its automatic film tension control, the TX Precision calculate automatically the length of each piece and apply/cut the film accordingly, avoiding any film elongation.

The TX Precision can be equipped with different options depending on your applications/materials and with our Smart Tech Protection innovative solutions. WALCO® systems and machines are built-to-order, ranging from simple to complex: depending upon your unique production and operational requirements.

The machine is available in different widths from 1400 to 2800 millimeters.

VX2

WALCO® VX2 is the first revolutionary vertical laminator designed specifically for the application of protective film on Insulating Glass Units (IGU) and flat glass!

Fully automated, the VX2 uses a patented WALCO® technology that allows the application of protective film on both sides of the glass in a single pass thanks to its automated adjustment system. Equipped with intelligent technology, it is automatically adjusted to the length and height of glass up to 3,000 millimeters.

Simultaneous double-sided application reduces cycle time and protects the outside and inside of a window from the hazards of handling and transportation to the window manufacturer, and once installed on a construction site.

Equipped with an automatic and adjustable cutting system configurable thanks to its digital display, the VX2 allows a free margin, enabling window manufacturers to easily install the profile without removing the film.

The machine has been tested with most commercially available protective films. We recommend Forglass 9561 film by NOVACEL® protective films for a perfect application.
