The 2023 edition of Vitrum, the Italian trade show dedicated to glass automation, is over. Forel, an exhibitor since 1981, showed its latest generation of machinery, solutions and processes. Here is a recap:
Visitors, coming from over 90 countries, were eager to learn about the new trends and technologies. With this in mind, two latest generation processing plants (for double glazing production and vertical processing) were demonstrated live at the Forel stand, where a total of 8 new patented innovations were introduced.
Among the highlights were the new automatic unloading and logistics system for completed double glazing panels. Premiered for the first time worldwide, it drew interest for its advantages in optimizing production flow: benefits that make this new solution a strategic choice for any type of double glazing (with rigid, flexible, or thermoplastic spacers).
Another showcased patent was the new mechanical glass positioning system of the Art.EM range of vertical grinder: this further development allows for the precision management of inward radius shapes, a welcome addition to the already comprehensive onboard shape library.
