SortJet for offline production

Look no further than the Sortjet for offline production as a solution for achieving a continuous flow of glass between the cutting station and subsequent stations, however difficult the prevailing conditions and however complex the production chains. The glass is always transported by harp rack when it needs to travel long distances or production is spread over several halls – or even different sites. The pieces of glass are either sorted into different harp racks either at random or in the correct sequence for production. Interlocking processes reduce handling by several orders of magnitude, while automation maintains the quality of the glass and significantly improves cycle times.

The SortJet for offline production creates a continuous flow of glass between the cutting station and the insulating glass production

Features

  • Automatically generated continuous flow of glass between the cutting station and subsequent production steps, e.g. when connecting to an ISO line
  • Provision and fully automatic sorting of panes from the chaotic order output by the waste-optimised cutting station to the production sequence required for the subsequent production step
  • Uncover additional, far-reaching scope for optimisation by decoupling individual processes
  • Additional potential for optimising waste costs by means of prefabrication and intermediate buffering of panes for staggered production runs
  • The comprehensive SortJet principle provides optimised and precisely coordinated processes
  • Glass quality preserved by reducing human input
  • Downtime due to incorrectly positioned or missing pieces of glass is eliminated
  • Networked processes for high flexibility, reliable production and transparency
  • Scope to integrate one or more cutting lines and one or more machining stations/lines
  • Maximum customer benefit – can be adapted to suit the individual requirements and prevailing conditions, e.g. by combining a dynamic storage solution and/or sorting into harp racks
  • Sorting into harp racks can follow the production order or be carried out in line with the cutting sequence

Functional description

When the SortJet is used for offline production, one or more cutting lines and machining stations are networked and interconnected. Where possible, however, the glass is transported via direct connection. Whenever a direct connection does not make sense or is otherwise infeasible, the panes are transported via harp rack. Depending on the configuration, dynamic storage options are included in the SortJet for offline production. The cut glass is then put together by a tilting table or swivel conveyor in a chaotic, waste-optimised sequence before being transferred to an input shuttle via a double or quadruple transfer wall. The shuttle moves in front of the designated dynamic storage compartment and transfers the pane for intermediate buffering. Dictated by the specifications of the insulating glass line, the panes are simultaneously removed from the output shuttle in the required sequence and continuously sorted into the harp rack. Depending on the prevailing conditions and individual customer requirements, the dynamic storage option may not be required. In such cases, the glass is automatically sorted onto several adjacent harp racks. The glass can also be removed or transferred to the insulating glass line fully automatically.

Oversized panes and special pieces of glass are fed in via an optional transfer station at the insulating glass or machining line, for example.
