Seamless conveying

Our broad portfolio of conveying solutions connects each step in the production line to form a sophisticated and fluid system.

 

 

 

 

Our technology conveys glass gently and precisely – even over distances greater than 100 meters or 110 yards. Furthermore, our conveying solutions operate smoothly and have long service lives too.

 

  • Conveying systems with specific functions
  • Robust, durable, efficient, low on maintenance and emissions
  • Ideal, steady material flows

 

We also have experience with providing tailor-made solutions, such as cleaning devices, or handling customized glass widths of up to six meters or approx. 19.7 foot. We’ll do everything needed to ensure glass is conveyed without any scratches or residues left behind.

 

 

 

 

"The most important thing for us has always been to transport glass gently and safely through the cutting and stacking processes in order to help you achieve the maximum yields. We have taken a big step into the future with our next generation of conveyors."

 
Markus Schmid, Senior Manager Mechanical Concept Engineering at Grenzebach Maschinenbau GmbH

Conveying technology: even more dynamic, even more robust

With a new generation of conveyor technology Grenzebach makes it possible to further increase the availability of float glass plants.

 

Transporting glass gently, carefully and safely has always been one of Grenzebach's top priorities. The specially developed drive train without cardan shafts represents a major step forward. The number of components in the drive has been significantly reduced - cardan shafts and belts are a thing of the past. This now results in even greater dynamics, less maintenance work and a lower spare parts inventory. The new drive train also offers the possibility of connecting all engines directly, which ensures smoother running and higher positioning accuracy. Gentle glass transport all along the line! Thanks to its new design, compact construction and transparent covers, the new conveyor technology generation also provides a clear view of key components and fast access for maintenance work. Of course, existing systems can be equipped with the new conveyor technology so that everyone can benefit from the advantages.

 

 

Heat is valuable. Why not make full use of it?

Waste Heat Recovery Systems >

An intelligent solution: we transfer the heat that is discharged during the cooling process via pipelines to the warehouse area, where it serves to maintain the required minimum glass temperature during the cold season. At the same time, this reduces heating costs in the warehouse.

Service

Our service for the glass industry

Construction and commissioning of a new glass production line is only the first stage in a good customer relationship. Professional service in daily operation is just as important: We want your investment to be profitable without any interruption – that’s why our engineers are there for you with guidance and support over the entire life cycle of the plant.
