COUPLING FLAT PRESS UNIT
★ OPTIMISED FOR SPECIAL GLASS ★ DEVELOPED WITH LEADING GLASSWORKS ★ HIGH QUALITY STANDARDS
The AP flat plate coupling press efficiently and accurately assembles doubleglazed units. The pressing accuracy is such that it can work with rigid, hybrid and flexible spacer systems, assembling them into double/triple/quadruple insulated glazed units of up to a thickness of 100 mm. The machine is a solid structure featuring FOREL’s innovative construction reflecting the philosophy and culture for quality build. The precise engineering of the super structure has allowed for a special system to be developed which guarantees extreme accuracy, performance and capacity especially considering weight per linear metre. The machine automatically measures the thickness of the sheets and frames (including butyl), which make up the glazing unit. Glass thickness is measured using a special selfcentering gage that operates irrespective of the position of the glass relative to the conveyor (useful when the glass has flatness errors). The precision of the pressing plane is guaranteed by a 4 point electronically controlled drive system that moves the pressing planes with absolute accuracy, ensuring perfect parallel movement guaranteeing quality pressing. Throughout the glass coupling process the glass sheets are supported from beneath via a mechanical device ensuring safety and precision when assembling standard, triple and stepped units. The front mobile surface is equipped with a series of suction cups that safely hold the glass. To optimize air consumption the suction cups are divided into different zones parts, which operate automatically according to the length and height of the glaze unit.
