The SplitFin is an integrated and continuous solution for fast and uncomplicated processing of the most common glasses and dimensions. The line is aimed especially at complete processing of interior glasses such as doors, side pieces or dividers. Splitting the processing steps allows a significantly higher output; the individual machines have been built to fit the required dimensions and requirements. The SplitFin sets new standards in user friendliness and ease of maintenance, since all important mechanical components are easily accessible and if possible located in the dry area.
Which components make up the line?
The SplitFin line concept comprises the following stations: A vertical edge grinding machine, a drilling and milling centre and a washing machine. In contrast to all-in-one centres or standalone solutions, this processing solution supports high output levels on the complete line. Depending on you requirements, you can start with single machines and extend your line to include other stations later.
Part of the line is the vertical fully automatic edge grinding machine EPS, optionally with one or two grinding heads and automatic tool changer upon request.
The second processing tower holds the MRX-B WJ drilling and milling centre with integrated tool changer and patented LiSEC water jet technology.
These processing devices are complemented by a TCL or a VHW glass washing machine, which can be retrofitted on request with a range of vertical semi-automatic or fully-automatic shuttle and sorting systems.
Not to forget the integration, consistency, and compatibility of the software. Of course the system can be integrated in external ERP systems or supplied with drawing data. Expect contemporary visualisation and evaluation systems with modern operation.
Is there a suitable logistics solution for this processing line?
When it comes to surrounding the processing machine with logistics, we offer you a wide range of vertical semi-automatic or fully-automatic shuttle and sorting systems. A tailor-made logistic solution reduces the effort for glass manipulation and manual sorting, as well as operator staffing. Of course, these solutions can be implemented in stages according to the customer's requirements.
The glass processing possibilities are as varied as the companies performing them. SplitFin's configuration options reflect this uniqueness. The right combination of individual machines defines the scope of processing, the numerous options allow the further reduction of cycle times or significantly increase the line's intelligence.
Compared to combination machines, this line is significantly faster and more effective. All components and parts of the system are in operation at all times. The individual machines of the SplitFin line have been optimised for fastest possible production of the processing steps.
Sheets distribution to the correct machines poses a challenge for many processing companies. Using many individual machines impairs the continuous flow of materials. The sheets have to be resorted many times and the frequent manipulation reduces the quality. Compared to individual devices, SplitFin offers you the advantages of a continuous material flow, on request even with a vertical overtaking lane (VLO = vertical lift over).
All individual machines in the SplitFin are available separately. Often only a part of the processing machines in the production have to be replaced. When additional machines are required later on, they can still be connected into a line. This way, SplitFin can grow alongside your company.
