HEGLA places Vitrum focus on LSG model-cutting and linear drive technology

Set To Play A Key Part In The International Rendezvous Of The Glass Industry In Milan

With solutions and concepts for the scoring of shapes in laminated glass, HEGLA will play a part in the international rendezvous of the glass industry at Vitrum in Milan.

Anyone wanting to see the performance capability of electromagnetic linear drives with their own eyes has a great opportunity at the stand with the Rapidline cutting system. “The market for free designed forms from LSG is growing rapidly,” says HEGLA’s Managing Director, Manfred Vollbracht, underlining that shape scoring will be a big topic at the trade fair. “When we first presented a cutting system with this technology back in 2012,” continues Vollbracht, “we did not expect that just five years later, almost every other of our laminated glass systems would be ordered and delivered with the Shape equipment”. In the process patented by HEGLA, in order to score free forms and models, the glass is first fixed by grippers and then moved with precision underneath the dual cutting head, which only moves on a single axis, in accordance with the specified contours. A separate drive adjusts this precisely to the requirements of the cutting plan and generates a synchronised and precise result on both sides of the pane in a work operation. The current LSG cutting systems of the ProLam series can score in pretty much any form – from simple rectangles, trapezia to semi-circles or circles – with the optional shape function and the diagonal cutting device; and in the case of straight sections, it can also perform automatic cutting. New to the machine builder’s programme is the RapidLam, which was primarily designed as a stand-alone system for the processing of models from laminated safety glass. Depending on customer requirements, the system may also be used as an auxiliary output in an existing line solution. In order to be able to move the glass in the best possible way, the grippers are integrated in the table so they can be lowered; thus offering a high degree of flexibility. HEGLA Managing Director Bernhard Hötger, who played a key role in the development, is convinced with the new concept: “With significantly less time requirements, and a high degree of precision, our customers can offer reproducible LSG models and generate competitive advantages”. The Rapidline on exhibition at the stand provides a small glance at the global strategy of the HEGLA Group. Designed as the centrepiece of a three-part line with manual breakout table and automatic loading, it is especially popular in the international markets. Fitted with low maintenance electromagnetic linear drives – one of the cutting table’s main technological features – it achieves accurate cuts at high acceleration values of the cutting bridge. In particular, the high degree of precision, the compact design and the balanced extent of automation have led to this system being also used in many cases for special cutting and the handling of peaks in production for float glass and ornamental glass.

‘Where we lead others follow’. With more than 30 years of experience of cutting float and laminated glass along with in-house production facilities that are second to none, Hegla is capable of producing simple solutions for the most complicated systems based on customer requirements and available space. Hegla has been leading the field for many years and continues to do so with many innovative ideas borne by research and development (R&D) as well as customer requests. Twin soft coat-edged deletion, twin cutting heads, high-speed loaders with mechanical peeling, sub plate re-use systems for 6mx3m glass, and linear drive tables are all available

    I’m impressed, I have to admit. Ѕeldom do I come across
    а blⲟg that’s equally educative and engaging,
    and withօut a doubt, you have hit the nail on the head.

    The problem is an issue that too few men and women are speaking
    intelligently about. I am very hɑppy that I came across this in my search for something reɡardіng this.
