At this year’s glasstec / solarpeq trade fair, which took place in Düsseldorf between October 23 and 26, Bystronic glass presented high speed solutions for glass processing in the architectural and automotive glass sectors as well as innovative solutions for the solar industry. As announced Bystronic glass additionally emphasised the preferred partner cooperation with HEGLA: Both exhibition spaces were situated directly next to each other. Consequently, customers, where necessary, were able to conduct joint talks comfortably with experts from both companies.

The new speed’line for the production of insulating glass stretched along the entire length of one side of the stand. Besides speed’sealer, the quick sealing robot that has already been introduced onto the market, this modern production line also includes machinery that allows for the production of triple I.G. units with the fastest possible cycle time: two tps’applicator components that are arranged one after the other for the application of TPS® (Thermo Plastic Spacer) and the speed’assembler, the new press for the quick assembly and gas filling of triple insulating glass units.

In the laminated glass production sector, customers could obtain information about the eco’lamiline, the new production line, which enables all versions of laminated glass to be produced in an energy-efficient manner – from simple constructions through to complex shaped formats with special films – all on a single system. Next to the insulating glass line and the laminated glass area, customers were able to try a selection of rational handling equipment for all flat glass and plate processing sectors for themselves. This also included the best seller, the Easy-Lift, which has converted customers in the glass processing industry with its rigid guidance and its low own weight since 1998.

In the form of the champ’speed, Bystronic glass has introduced a completely new machine generation for the preprocessing of automotive glass onto the market. It is now also available in the champ’speed 2in1 version, the first machine in the world that can break automotive glass with or without a template on one single cell – which optimises production processes. There was also the TPedge module on display at the Bystronic glass booth. It represents an innovative leap into the production of solar modules and is a joint development by Fraunhofer ISE in Freiburg and Bystronic glass on the basis of a Fraunhofer patent. The wafer-based solar module can be produced much quicker and much more inexpensively than standard wafer modules.

The expert contact partners for service – right from the very first minute of consulting up to after sales service – were on hand at the glasstec stand to provide information.
