Glass Laminating Equipment

Z-SERIES

The Z-Series is our premium glass washer and is offered in 70", 96", 110" and 132". The Z Series platform is a high-performance glass cleaning system focused on the bottom line.  Intelligent maintenance features and high-level process control help to place this washer above others.  The Z-Series is engineered to sustain an optimum level of cleaning over years of continuous use and offers easy access to internal components for cleaning, maintenance, and minimal downtime.

Robotic Arm Loader with CNC Cutter

Please watch the video of our latest semi-jumbo(108- by 144-inch) CNC Linear Motor glass cutting line, including a robotic glass loading system, which can load 25 to 30 different types of glass. The design minimized floor space requirements while also accommodating building column interferences. Glassline’s CNC LM Cutting Machine design provides high speed, high acceleration, AND tight tolerances. It is very low maintenance due to the use of linear motors and a patented direct drive cutting head, eliminating the use of any belts or gears to wear. Call today to discuss how we can help collaborate on your project, for the best solution for YOU. GLASSLINE®, a name you have trusted for 50 years.

Glass Rectangle Slitting (Strip Cutting)

Appliance, as well as some other manufacturers, need to process small parts for things such as refrigerator shelves. It is more costly and difficult to handle if the raw glass comes from the float line in small pieces. Therefore a slitting line is one solution, whereby the glass can be shipped in larger blanks, and slit, or cut down into the smaller pieces required. Slitting is the process of using multiple cutting heads to score a sheet in a straight line. This slitting can happen with the glass moving past fixed cutting heads, or by placing the cutting heads on a bridge with the glass fixed in position. In the case of the example shown, the block is automatically loaded by our overhead loader, and the block is automatically positioned so that the slit pieces are of a nominal size tolerance. The glass is then transferred under the slitting bridge which has five slitting heads. These heads are automatically set up to size by the program based on the size of the block and the size of the parts desired. The glass is then transferred, the scores are snapped, and the individual parts are fed into a Glassline double edger, which is the only edger fast enough to handle parts at this speed. Other slitting configurations can be proposed depending on your needs.

Glass Laminator IFL

A truly advanced way to laminate glass – Inline Flat Lamination

Whether in the field of security, sound insulation, building construction or multi-media functionalities – the versatile application of laminated glass has no limits. With the development of inline flat lamination, we are taking this idea further with an autoclave-free process. This innovation enables us to guarantee our customers fast lamination with short cycle times and low energy consumption with the highest possible quality.

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.
