Welcome to a GED IG Manufacturing Facility

Intercept Spacer Fabrication

Warm-edge spacer fabrication system that produces stainless steel, u-channel design spacers in various colors and material types.

Systems in this Category:

SmartExtruder+ & Pumps

Applies the right amount of sealant and desiccant at the right time. Connects to the Intercept spacer system.

Systems in this Category:

Grid Machine

Forms and shapes grid and muntin bars that go inside an insulating glass unit for a clean and elevated look.

Systems in this Category:

Overhead Conveyor

Hooks on a conveyor belt that spacer frame assemblers use to hang folded spacers coming off the SmartExtruder machine.

Stainless Steel Washer

The Stainless Steel washer, paired with water purification systems (AquaSave and AquaFresh), removes impurities from cut glass before it is fed into an IG assembly system.

Systems in this Category:

Assembly System

This is where glass exiting the washer gets topped with folded spacers and conveyed to the oven. The Automated Tri-Lite Assembly System (ATLAS) uses air-lift technology to top IGs, then an IG Assembly Table automatically assembles triples.

Systems in this Category:

IG Cooling

An IG cooling system cools IGs from the oven and transports them to the gas fill, close, seal system for the final steps in the IGU production process.

Gas Fill, Close, Seal

The final step in the IG production process, RoboSeal uses 3 robots and a series of IG cart shuttles to automatically fill IG with insulating gas, insert Scrivet (screw+rivet) to close the gas hole, then apply a seal over the Scrivet for a completely sealed unit.

Systems in this Category:

  • RoboSeal
  • Scrivet (screw + rivet)
  • Scrivet AirGun
Oven

The oven and roll press heats IGs from the assembly system in order to cure the sealant and permanently join the 2 pieces of glass with the spacer.

CleanCutâ„¢

CleanCut 1700 and 1800 Series glass cutting and edge deletion tables take glass sheets and cut them according to shape schedules using glass optimization software. A breakout table allows the operator to separate the cut glass from the edge deleted glass and then transfer them to a slotted IG cart.
