ROBOTIC LOADING OF GLASS PANE TO INSULATED GLASS PROCESSING LINES, OR ANY VERTICAL TRANSPORT SYSTEM.
IG-L UNLOADS SOFT COATED GLASS WITH NO DAMAGE TO THE COATING.
THE IDEA FOR THE IG-L WAS BORN IN 2018 DURING A CONVERSATION BETWEEN ROBERT OWEN AND A LONG STANDING CUSTOMER OF HIS, A LEADING UK IGU MANUFACTURER. PRODUCTION BOTTLENECKS AND HEALTH & SAFETY ISSUES WERE REPEATEDLY DISCUSSED AT LENGTH.
IT WAS NOW TIME TO FIND A SOLUTION FOR THIS INDUSTRY WIDE ISSUE. FROM THIS GS-MR DESIGNED, DEVELOPED AND MANUFACTURED THE IG-L.
GS-MR SOLD THE FIRST FULLY ROBOTIC IG-L SYSTEM TO THIS LEADING UK IGU MANUFACTURER.
ROBOTIC UNLOADING OF GLASS PANE FROM INSULATED GLASS PROCESSING LINES
CAN ALSO BE UTILISED TO TRANSPORT GLASS FROM VERTICAL PROCESSING TO HORIZONTAL PROCESSING AND VICE VERSA, THUS AFFORDING YOU MAXIMUM UTILISATION OF YOUR SITE SPACE. DEPENDENT UPON YOUR REQUIREMENTS, THERE IS THE OPTION FOR AUTOMATIC SCANNING FOR PICKING AND PLACING OF GLASS PANE.
- LOADING FROM VERTICAL OR HORIZONTAL ARRISER ONTO A HORIZONTAL FURNACE BED
- UNLOADING FROM CUTTING TABLE TO A OR L FRAMES
- UNLOADING OF FURNACE BED TO ENABLE GLASS PANES TO BE FED INTO A VERTICAL TRANSPORT/STORAGE SYSTEM, WHICH GS-MR ALSO DESIGN AND MANUFACTURER.
