A successful 2017 edition for Vitrum, the international exhibition dedicated to the world of glass, its machinery and applications. This event represents an important showcase for FOREL, one of the most important world player in flat glass processing industry.

During the four exhibition days, FOREL booth with more than 1.000 m², has been visited by a
considerable number of visitors.

The visitors attendance confirms the importance of the exhibition for the European market with a growing numbers of them coming from Russia and also overseas from USA and Far East.

On the Forel booth were displayed and fully operating one IG line and one complete vertical processing line for edging drilling and milling. Both of them were equipped with the most advanced solutions developed by FOREL, with the intention to provide lines able to work continuously also for three shifts a day.

The presented insulating glass line was made up of the vertical seaming machine series EG, the vertical washing machine series VW, the coupling flat press with gas filling series APG and the automatic sealing robot “High Performance” series SRHP.

The vertical “Jumbo” size processing line with 6000 x 3210 mm glass capacity and a total length of 40 meters was one of the main attractions of the exhibition.

The automatic vertical edging machine series EM with the drilling and milling machine series DM and the vertical washing machine series VW, is the winning solution for the high productivity and big sheets processing. The exceptional performances of such line represent the best investment for the customers which are looking to increase the production capacity and at the same time are focused on the glass quality and extreme processing tolerances.

These kinds of lines are already installed in 20 different countries over Europe, Asia, USA, Australia and New Zealand.

“After a period of relevant appointments for Forel, Vitrum 2017 was an unmissable opportunity to meet our customers once again” said Stefano Salvian, Sales Director of Forel “In September we attended the GlassBuild (Atlanta, USA), displaying the last release of the Hi Speed IG line and few days later we held in our headquarter in Vallio di Roncade (Italy) the successful Forel Open House 2017. The Open House was as great opportunity to present to our customers the high-level technology which Forel has developed in the last months, but the most important issue during the internal event was the possibility to understand the market needs. As usual listening the customers needs is our main commitment”.
