Art. CR NL

Low-e Coating Removal Machine

Forel developed the coating removal machine Art. CR to offer an extremely precise remove of the Low-E coating from the surface of the glass, allowing a correct application of the frame and a perfect sealing of the unit. This solution is equipped with 2 operative heads with peripheral abrasive grinding wheels: the heads work simultaneously, significantly reducing production times. In the “No Limits” version, Art. CR can process extra-Jumbo glass sheets, up to the maximum size of 9.000 x 3.300 mm. The coating removal machine Art. CR can process rectangular sheets (also in self learning mode) and shapes. To optimize the removal processing, the machine is also equipped with a dust extraction system, a specific tool for the automatic wheel regeneration and many other features.

Art. SR NL

Sealing Robot

The sealing robot Art. SR of the “No Limits” line has been developed to offer a perfect sealing of the pane, also processing extra Jumbo size glass sheets. The sealing robot Art. SR NL is equipped with an innovative sensor system, which allows the nozzle of the extrusion head to follow any curvatures of the glass: an essential solution in the production of stepped glass panes. The sealing process can use 3 different products, with non-stop high flow rate delivery. The sealing robot Art. SRHT can process insulating glass units with a capacity of up to 550 kg per linear meter and offset units up to a total thickness of 100 mm. It can also process double, triple or quadruple panes.

Art. AP NL

Tandem coupling flat press with gas filling

The tandem gas filling coupling press Art. AP NL has been designed to manage big size of glass sheets. Equipped with an exclusive retractable suction cup also on the rear surface, Art. AP NL can straight any curvatures (even with laminated glass) and ensure an uniform gas filling. The coupling press can process insulating glass panes with up to 3 chambers. It is also equipped with a double circuit for the emission of the gas: it can therefore use two different products for filling the chamber (argon/krypton).

Stepped units
Rigid/Flexible/Thermoplastic Spacer
Double/Triple/Quadruple Glazing
Argon/Krypton/Both Gas Filling

Art. RC NL

Turning Conveyor

The turning conveyor Art. RC NL can rotate at any angle, clockwise or counter clockwise. It can be installed in-line or as a corner conveyor, depending on the user’s requirements. It allows the best possible arrangement of space, with a machining process that does not require interruption of the production cycle. Usually, Art. RC NL is used to turn the glass of 180°, orientating low-emissive glass coatings correctly, thus facilitating the production of glazed units with 2 or more sheets. Art. RC NL optimizes production, thanks to the perfect synchronisation of all the line machinery. Like in the “High Tech” model, in Art. RC NL the glass sheet is supported by an air cushion technology, but it can support an higher weight (up to 350 kg/linear meter).

Art. VW NL

Vertical Washing Machine

Capable of processing glass sheet in extra Jumbo size (up to 3.300 mm of height and 12 meters of length and up to 350 kg for linear meter, for a max thickness of 40 mm), this special version of the Vertical Washing Machine Art. VW is equipped a pre-washing section, 8 brushes (diameter 225 mm) and four washing sections. It’s a full optional model: entire manufactured in stainless steel, Art. VW NL can process any low-e glass, thanks to sensors which detect the coating and manage the brushes position as consequence. It is equipped also with a water heating sistem up to 60° C.

Art. PB

Automatic Profile Bender

The Profile Bending Machine Art. PB is a strategic tool for any insulating glass unit producer and one the world’s highest performance solutions for spacer bending. It can process easily any kind of spacer, perfectly calibrating each single bend with the aid of dedicated software. The main important features of the machine is the special Smart Arm (patent) which accompanies and supports the frame: thanks to this feature, is possible to process even large frames avoiding the breakage or deformation of the spacer.

Art. MB

Manual Butyl Extruder

The Art. MB butyl extruder ensures full compliance with the most stringent standards required for the primary seal. The Butyl rubber is dispensed by two extruder nozzles through two separate dispensers, which ensures an uniform distribution around the whole perimeter (a special feature unique to Forel). The touch screen unit manages at the same time the automatic opening of the nozzles (width adjustment) and the positioning of the pre-extrusion guides, according to the selected spacer width value. The injection capacity (grams of butyl rubber per linear metre) can be set directly. Art. MB is able to apply butyl rubber on shaped profiles or Georgian bar frames, with exceptional accuracy and simplicity of operation. Preproduction heating can be pre-set to automatically turn on.

Art. DF

Desiccant Filler

The Spacer Processing range of Forel is completed by the Desiccant Filler Art. DF. Consisting of a turret holding a frame-pressing vice, and two special drilling and filling heads, this solution can process frames of any form, whether rectangular or shaped. Art. DF can also be fitted with an automatic frame loading/unloading system; in this way, the desiccant loader can be automatically fed and the butyl application unit can be topped up immediately afterwards.

Art. CA

Cork Pads Applicator

The Art. CA automatic cork pads applicator further optimize the IG unit production process. The solution is equipped with 4 or 5 applicator heads, automatically positioned according to the height of the glass pane and the varying needs of the operator. Each movable head is fed from a material reel, which is easily and rapidly replaced. The material unwound from the reel is cut and applied to the moving glass. The operator uses software to set the distance between the applied pads.

Art. SQ

Quality Control Scanner

The Art. SQ scanner performs real-time quality control on the glass by detecting defects, indentations or microfractures, and displaying them on the monitor, alerting the operator immediately. A combination of innovative software and technology allows this scanner to detect accurate information as the glass is moving along the insulated glass production line conveyor or on a glass processing line conveyor. This solution is equipped with a dedicated software that produces images with a resolution of up to 400 dpi (0.0635 mm). The defects detected by the scanner can be categorized by the user according to the type and size of defect, and can be achieved for future reference and analysis.
