Butyl extruding

Efficient manufacturing process through simplified logistics


Here are three reasons why Glaston’s butyl extruding technology is your best choice

1.

Optimized coating quality of rectangular and shaped forms

2.

Spacer width measuring device available

3.

Controlled heating circuits and low energy consumption

SPACER’BUTYLEXTRUDER


Double-sided coating of spacer frames with thermoplastic sealant

  • Suitable for coating rectangular and shaped spacer frames as well as for spacer frames with muntin bars
  • Automatic and speed-dependent adjustment of the hold-down rollers as well as nozzle opening and closing
  • Specially designed hold-down rollers for radius-shaped spacers
  • Processing of different spacer heights by adjusting the nozzle height
  • Infinitely adjustable pressure, temperature and coating speed

Precise coating

  • Convenient and fast refilling of the sealant into the vertically tilted material cylinder with a quick-change attachment
  • Automatic evacuating system and low-level indicator
  • Timer for preheating the sealant material with a weekly program sequence
  • Short heat-up cycle thanks to optimized heating circuits
  • Low energy consumption in standard operation, low-noise operation

SPACER’BUTYLAPPLICATOR


Precise and user-friendly spacer frame coating with butyl

  • Stepless automatic nozzle adjustment for spacer width from 5–24 mm (0.20–0.94 in), 12 pre-adjustable spacer widths possible
  • Interruption-free, long-term operation using 200-liter butyl drum pump system
  • Frame transport system incorporating servo motors as well as application speed control for reliable application also on the corner sections
  • Positioning stops and frame guiding for speedy precise, high-repetition application
  • Gentle turning of spacer frames with stepless adjustable rotating speed, dependent on spacer frame dimension
  • Double gripper system, automatic outer gripper activation for safe support and fast rotation of larger frames
  • Sealant feeding to nozzles using a temperature-controlled pipe system with controlled heating circuits for gentle material treatment

Options

  • Quick semi-automatic quick adjustment for the butyl coating of different spacer heights
  • Additional equipment for automatic frame coating with muntin bars
  • Coating process can be switched over for bent radius corners and key corners
  • Possibility to run in conveyor for uncoated frames
  • Overhead frame conveyor for storage and automatic transfer of uncoated frames
  • Overhead frame conveyor for automatic takeover and storage of coated frames
  • Additional equipment for frame tilting if support walls are opposed slanted
  • Equipment for butyl processing with abrasive effects
