The high-end gas filling press AGP-A is suitable for a wide range of applications due to the individual configuration options and impresses with the highest precision and quality. The improved AGP-A transport system supports all glass lites sheets during assembly, allowing the processing of thermoplastic spacers as well.
How is the AGP-A configured?
Glass transport is realised via a belt transport system on each side of the press. The reinforced design with the AGP-A also allows the processing of thick glass thicknesses and heavy unit weights. The pressed panel surfaces are made of special multi-layer panels, which guarantee precise package thickness of the insulating glass unit with the lowest manufacturing tolerances. The waterproofing of the pressing chamber is achieved on the inlet side by means of a partition and on the outlet side by means of a moveable seal bar, so that the gas consumption is minimised.
How does the automatic gas filling press work?
The first glass sheet is transported in and positioned in the press after the trailing edge has been detected by a sensor. The vacuum suction cups on the opposite moveable press plate take over this glass sheet. At the same time, this glass sheet is supported by the belt carrier on the moveable press plate. The second glass sheet equipped with spacers is transported in and placed in the same position as the previous glass sheet. The press chamber is then made waterproofed. In the newly formed cell, a rising gas cloud fills the interior space of the unit and displaces the enclosed air upwards without producing any turbulence. Once the required gas amount has been attained, the unit is pressed and sent out.
Who is AGP-A suitable for?
Its universal application possibilities mean that the LiSEC AGP-A can be used by insulating glass processing operations both for the cycle-time-optimised production of windows and doors as well as for the manufacture of heavy façade units. High-quality components allow maximum system availability and reduce operating and maintenance costs.
What advantages does the AGP-A offer?
The AGP-A is perfectly suited for the production of double, triple and multiple insulating glass units. The new transport system supports all glass lites sheets of the unit, which makes the processing of thermoplastic spacers and heavy insulating glass units effortless. Optimising the step mechanism now allows a bottom edge step of up to 150 mm to be produced with the heaviest unit weights. The LiSEC AGP-A is perfectly suited for processing thermoplastic spacers because a belt drive is used on both the fixed press plate and the moveable press plate.
The innovative fixture for the production of stepped units allows steps in the range of the lower edge from 0 - 150 mm. The height-adjustable moveable press plates, which adapt to the step height, support the insulating glass unit.
