Osprey 10 Complete

Osprey 10 Complete Anisotropy, Overall Bow Recognition + Distortion

  • NEW to Osprey 10 Complete -Overall Bow Recognition - OBR is a LiteSentry proprietary quality test that recognizes bowed or bi-stable pieces of glass in real-time and displays results alongside other Osprey data before pieces are removed from the furnace unload table.
  • The Osprey measures all types of anisotropy, optical distortion, flatness, and local and overall bow over the entire area of the glass. 

The Osprey system is installed over the unload conveyor of a flat glass heat-treatment line, measuring and reporting anisotropy, optical distortion, flatness, and thickness of the heat-treated glass. Each glass sheet is measured and data is collected and stored for each glass sheet.

CleanCut™ 1700 & 1800 Series Glass Cutting Tables

GED’s new CleanCut™ 1700 Series and 1800 Series include the 1700 and 1800 models (for cutting) and 1700-D and 1800-D models (for cutting and deletion). The 1800 Series processes larger lites (96" x 130") and the 1700 Series processes smaller lites (72" x 102"). Both series boast enhanced speed, updated technical features, and increased throughput while maintaining the options manufacturers want when selecting a glass production system. Features include programmable cutting and deletion force with electro-pneumatic actuation, new stationary belt drive system, true servo drive in GED-patented deletion head, regeneration brake system, easily accessible cutting fluid reservoir, and HEPA vacuum filter. Seamless integration with GED Software eliminates the need for additional setup, meaning less data maintenance with new stock introduction. Come to our GlassBuild booth (1739) to see a competitive speed comparison of throughput.

A560 Automatic Centrifuge

PTN330 LGV: Laser Guided Inloader Transporter

Italcarrelli, global leader in the design and manufacturing of machines and in the development of solutions for flat glass handling, revolutionizes logistics in float glass factories by introducing Automated Guided Vehicles (AGV).

The Company, having always been oriented towards innovation and automation and boasting a long experience in automated guided vehicles in various sectors, including metallurgy and aerospace, has applied its technology to its flat glass department.

Italcarrelli has developed various solutions to transform its machines into automated guided vehicles, featuring inductive and optical guidance systems, yet above all Laser Guided Vehicles (LGV).

The laser guidance system is an innovative and smart system that can be installed on any inloader or side-loader to turn it into a self-driving machine.

Thanks to laser guide, very high accuracy can be achieved - even greater than 5 mm in terms of positioning. It is a very flexible solution and the routes can be easily generated, modified or extended, without particular impact on the facilities.

AGV machines by Italcarrelli allow optimizing logistics operations among the production lines, warehouses, glass processing lines and shipping areas, thus increasing productivity and safety and consequently reducing production costs.

Mappi Supertemper

Mappi SUPERTEMPER, the new frontier for the tempering of fire resistant glass

There are various indicators of resistance and "hardness" of glass that are measured and researched to comply with the various regulations and applications: one of the main ones is the "Surface Stress" which is measured in Mpa. A tempered glass normally has a Surface Stress around> 69 MPa (10,000 Psi); However, there are particular applications, in which the customers' request is to have a “Surface Stress” of 160 Mpa or higher.

Mappi has developed particular technologies which condense the innovative solutions necessary to achieve a Surface Stress of 160 Mpa or higher in the normal dimensions of a tempering furnace. Mappi today introduces a brand, Mappi SUPERTEMPER, which identifies this unique possibility, a brand that all its customers can use to give even more value and prestige to their products.

A Mappi SUPERTEMPER tempering furnace achieves the characteristics necessary to certify E30 glass for fire resistance. A tempering furnace with the Mappi SUPERTEMPER option maintains all the characteristics that have made Ats 4.0 and Fox the milestones for those seeking excellence.

"HIGH TECH" IG LINE WITH THERMOPLASTIC SPACER APPLICATOR Art. TA

The cornerstone of the range of Forel products for insulating glass. The result of Forels’ decades of experience in this field, the “High Tech” range is complemented by a choice of exclusive devices and systems for working with offset panes, shaped panes and for double, triple and quadruple IG units. This line can process assembled glass units up to 130” X 236” in size, weighing up to 275lbs per linear foot (assembled panel), and nearly 4” thick. Equipped with a flat plate coupling press with gas filling (argon/krypton) and sealing machine, the “High Tech" line can process rigid or flexible spacers and can use up to three different sealing products.

During the upcoming 2021 GlassBuild America show, Forel will reveal its new “High Tech” IG line with thermoplastic spacer: This solution extends the capabilities of the range offered by Forel, adding the ability to use thermoplastic material as the spacer. Making its debut is the new Art. TA applicator, developed specifically for this material.  The innovative features being introduced are not limited to only this machine: Advanced solutions are implemented throughout the entire line and will be presented for the first time during the 2021 GBA.

DRILL 1600 - Drilling and milling CNC center

DRILL 1600FF is a vertical CNC for drilling and milling designed for producing holes, inserts and countersinks on flat sheet glass with a thickness of 3-22 mm. The machine is composed of five axes, X Y V Z W, and two electro-spindles which, as opposite drilling heads, create a double-sided drilling system that drills perfect holes.
The machine can perform multiple machining processes:
DRILLING: thanks to the opposing heads, this is done at maximum speed and always ensures excellent quality and precision. 
COUNTERSINKING: this can be done either with individual diamond tools and adjusted through the program in accordance with customers’ needs, or with accessories fitted on diamond drill bits. 
MILLING:  This operation is simple and fast thanks to the multiple tools: the machine can mill and grind an insert in just a few seconds.
 

E-D 101 - Vertical CNC center

E-D 101 is a vertical CNC center that combines multiple types of processing in one system, which is capable of carrying out processing operations with a high level of speed and precision. The machine permits any type of processing on shaped or straight flat sheet glass, and combines all drilling and milling technology with the characteristics of a vertical grinding machine.
The machine can perform multiple processes:
​​GRINDING: this is done using diamond wheels with a diameter of 150mm and can be carried out on both straight and shaped glass, including laminated and treated glass.
POLISHING: this can be performed both on large surfaces with 150mm diameter wheels and in small inserts with 50 or 30mm diameter wheels 
DRILLING: thanks to the opposing heads, this is done at maximum speed and always ensures excellent quality and precision.
COUNTERSINKING: this can be done either with individual diamond tools and adjusted through the program in accordance with customers’ needs, or with accessories fitted on diamond drill bits.
MILLING: thanks to the extreme sturdiness and precision of the system, milling is a quick and simple operation to perform, and with the multiple tools a milled and ground insert can be obtained in a few seconds.
