Automatic desiccant filling machine for bent spacers
With the desiccant filling machine ARL-45F, spacer frames made from all common materials can be filled with desiccant, both as rectangular frames and as shapes. Filling at the back of the frame guarantees a stable process, even with delicate plastic materials. The optional measurement of the desiccant quantity can ensure that there is sufficient desiccant in the frame compared to other systems.
How is the ARL-45F configured?
The ARL-45F is supplied with desiccant via a 200l drum. A further important component is the height-adjustable frame clamp. In addition, there are two movable units, which contain a desiccant supply tank, a drilling unit, the desiccant transport with filling opening and a closing unit.
How does the ARL-45F work?
The desiccant is pumped from the 200l drum into the supply tanks. The operator inserts a corner of the frame into the clamp and starts the automatic process by pressing a foot pedal. The two drills are brought into position and drill a filling hole on the back of the profile. Two legs of the spacer frame are then filled with desiccant and the two holes are sealed with butyl. The clamp then releases the frame again and the operator removes it from the filling machine.
Who is ARL-45F suitable for?
This desiccant filling machine is ideal for all production facilities that require extensive flexibility in production, and that also want to process shapes in addition to rectangular spacer frames. Customers who place the highest value on quality and wish to document and verify the quantity of the desiccant filler will find the machine particularly appealing.
What advantages does the machine offer?
A major advantage is filling via the rear side of the profile, because it is even possible to drill thick-walled plastic profiles. The optional measurement and documentation of the desiccant quantity is a key advantage.
What functions are included as standard?
Automatic drilling of the spacer frame on the rear side of the short and long frame leg
Adjustment of the optimum working height by means of a pneumatic lifting device
Automatic pumping of the granulate from a 200 l drum to the filling devices
Simultaneous filling of two sides of the spacer frame with granulate
Sealing the drilled hole with butyl
What functions can be optionally added?
Measurement and documentation of the desiccant filling quantity
Equipment for processing heat-flexible spacers (Swisspacer, Multitech, Thermobar, TGI Precision)
Processing of frames with a max. size of 3500 x 1200 mm
The required quantity of desiccant is calculated in advance and compared with the measured quantity through a connection to the IG LineManagement. This results in direct error detection during the filling process, meaning that timely intervention is possible. Documenting the process values facilitates the verification of faultless frame production to the end customer.
