This is the third cutting line installed at TuffX during the last two years and it has been integrated into the company’s modern 50,000 sq ft facility at Knowsley to streamline further production methods. The installation has already helped to increase output of the ever more popular AmbiMax Oversize units and will enable the company to further diversify its already well recognised specialist glass range. Streamlining production and modernising the facility enables TuffX to have complete control over quality standards, increasing production levels and improving manufacturing methods providing an even faster, improved service. Substantial investment in Bottero equipment has been made since an initial cutting line was installed by TuffX in 1997. Since then a good relationship has been built up between the two companies, as the reliability of the Bottero brand has helped both to improve productivity and maintain the highest production standards. www.tuffxprocessedglass.co.uk www.ambiglass.co.uk or call 0845 3 400 200. Interpane Belgern’s ‘best-selling’ sealed units rely on SWISSPACER Interpane Group is one of Europe’s leading glass processors. To meet growing demand for the most thermally efficient sealed units, the company started a pilot project and invested in machinery to automate production of sealed units with SWISSPACER inside. The new Romillo mitre-saw and Roweldo welder from ROTTLER & RUDIGER were installed at 84 APR 2014 Interpane’s IGU plant in Belgern, Germany. Both machines are ideal for large-scale production and let Interpane produce over 600 SWISSPACER frames in a single shift. Interpane says these sealed units with SWISSPACER are ‘best-sellers’ because they give the best thermal performance. Vic De Costa, SWISSPACER Marketing & Sales Manager (UK & Ireland) says: “Interpane is just one of many big sealed unit makers who use automated machinery from ROTTLER & RUDIGER for large-scale SWISSPACER production, because it is tried and tested to give the best thermal performance. But SWISSPACER is also very popular with smaller manufacturers because specialist machinery isn’t needed – it can be processed by hand or on existing machinery. “Visit www.swisspacer.com, call 0845 601 1265 or see us on Stand 322 at The FIT Show.” To read more, visit www.clearview-uk.com
