Sternfenster has installed a new 42m Forel high-speed automatic glass line in a £1million investment, which includes a dual super spacer reel station, air cushion conveying system, georgian bar processing, diagnostic supervision module, hot melt robot, anti-static bar with quality scanner, and quality check and frame positioning station.

The line is complemented by a new £40,000 Atlantic six-brush vertical glass washer with demineraliser, and a new £40,000 glass cutting table.

Glass production manager Einars Kalva said: “Our glass shop is a key element of our manufacturing process, so it is vital we keep up to date with the latest, most efficient machinery.

“For example, we see that demand for triple glazing is increasing, as homeowners learn that a small increased investment in their new windows will mean much lower energy bills for many more years.

“By investing in this new Forel high-speed line, we are creating more opportunities for our customers to capitalise on that demand across both our PVC-U and aluminium product lines.”
