Hansen Glass modernizes IG production with Bystronic machine

Post Time:Jul 19,2010Classify:Industry NewsView:156

The glass processor Hansen Glass, based in the U.K., town of Kirkby, modernized its insulating glass production with the acquisition of a spacerbender COMBI from Bystronic glass, according to a July 19. Alongside the frame-bending robot made of stainless steel, ideally suited for stainless steel and plastic stainless composite spacer bar profiles, the British glass processor also invested in a matching desiccant filling station and a butyl applicator.

“We are fully satisfied with every Bystronic glass machine, from the quotation phase through delivery and on to commissioning,” said Keith Hibbert of Hansen Glass, in the release. The company has been in contact with Bystronic glass since 2000: back then Hansen Glass purchased a solution for loading and glass customization that is still being used today. “Right from the very start up to the present day, this system has more than fulfilled all our expectations. We use it five days a week, with three daily shifts and we are particularly impressed by the reliability of the machines.”

For Hansen Glass this current investment is of major significance: for many reasons, including legal regulations, the company decided at the end of 2009 to convert from manual preparation of spacer frames in insulating glass production to state-of-the-art machine technology. The new machines were commissioned at the start of January this year. The company is now able to continuously manufacture top-quality insulating glass units – and to do so without any fluctuations in production. However, it wasn’t just the machine technology that clinched the decision for the investment: “As far as we were concerned, the experience we had in terms of the excellent after-sales service and the intensive level of cooperation with Bystronic glass during the quotation phase, were vital criteria”, Hibbert said in the release.
