Curved glass panes moved, cleaned and packed with the Heavydrive GMG 1000
Glass manufacturer vandaglas (Döring Glas) hired the practical and flexible Heavydrive GMG 1000 glass assembly system to handle curved glass panes weighing 650 kilograms (1433 lbs) in its Berlin factory.
The Heavydrive GMG 1000 glass robot is ideally suited for transporting large and heavy glazing and window and door elements weighing up to 1000 kilograms (2205 lbs). The system is available with different suction frames for flat elements or for curved glazing.
For the assignment in Berlin, the suction frame of the GMG 1000 was adapted to the size of the curved panes. The assembly aid suctioned the glass elements in the middle and was then able to transport them safely through the factory hall. For cleaning, the panes were simply turned by a single operator via radio remote control and then accurately and steplessly moved into the transport box and positioned.
Heavydrive accomplished the logistics for the hire assignment in record time. Thanks to the well-stocked workshop, the suction frame of the glass assembly system was adapted to the pane size and shape in no time at all. "One of Heavydrive's special services is to offer the customer a tailored solution. This is why we optimally adapt our systems to the requirements of the project at hand," says Günter Übelacker, Managing Director of Heavydrive. In the company's own workshop, the experienced employees combine the different systems to ensure the customer gets the most efficient and cost-saving solution.
