Solutions for the digitalization of flat glass production

Grenzebach also addresses the digitalization of highly efficient flat glass production lines. The perfect solutions are provided with the digitalization eco-system SERICY. Be it in cut-to-size optimization, in the digitalization of previously analog information through the recorder app, or through targeted handling recommendations from an operator guidance system based on an AI-trained process model.

Foundation of the Grenzebach Envelon adds solar-active façades to the business area

Grenzebach taps into the field of solar-active building façades, or building-integrated photovoltaic systems, with the foundation of the Grenzebach Envelon GmbH in October 2021. The Grenzebach Envelon GmbH is a system provider for solar-active facades and building envelopes and provides an attractive and aesthetically pleasing option for efficient decentralized power generation.

The two leading suppliers of glass production technology are combining their expertise in this partnership to provide their customers with even more comprehensive support. The core task of this cooperation is the provision of engineering services related to glass production and the development of turnkey projects. On the glasstec, the two companies are presenting their services shoulder to shoulder at neighboring booths.

"After a break due to the pandemic, we are now very happy to be back in direct contact with customers and partners", says Markus Gruber, Senior Vice President Business Unit Glass at Grenzebach. "At glasstec, Grenzebach has the perfect platform to present ourselves as one of the leading manufacturers of production equipment for float glass manufacturing. We have a lot in store for you – stay tuned!".
