Stacking technology - good stacking means better glass
For the glass line’s stacking process to work well, it relies on a good sorting process.
Grenzebach offers best-in-class technologies to guarantee precise stacking at the end of the glass lines.
- Sheets of glass can be simply removed by hand or by using a fully automatic stacker
- for small, mid-size, large and extra-extra-large glass sheets of up to 24 meters or 26 yards
- and weighing up to 3 tons or 6613 pounds.
The sheets of glass can be removed from the tin or air side, from several levels – tiers and drops, statically or picked on the fly. Single or dual pick options ensure greater efficiency. The smart combination of two stackers, which can be used singly or as a pair for extra-long sheets, allows fully flexible production.
