GED Introduces New Screen Frame Technology

Technology for Higher Output with Less Labor

Twinsburg, OH – May 9, 2007 | GED Integrated Solutions has incorporated new technology to its Screen Frame System to improve output by 33 percent and further increase labor savings. The system can now produce up to 2,000 screen frame assemblies per shift with one operator.

The improved Screen Frame System eliminates the need to post-process screen bar to accommodate latches, pins or other screen hardware. The system can now pre- or post-process the bars so the frame assembler can also install the hardware. This eliminates time-consuming offline processes and reduces handling, errors and product quality issues such as scratching.

The Screen Frame System, originally launched in 1999, has been reliably producing roll formed screen frame components in sequence with customers’ window orders for years. It has earned a reputation for accurate product quality with high output capabilities.

Other features include integration to GED’s LeanNET® software system that coordinates all aspects of glass, IG, screen and window production. This integration improves plant floor communication, front office scheduling, customer lead times and product quality.

As a part of GED’s complete line of glass and window fabrication equipment, the Screen Frame System is backed by the company’s leading training and support services. It is available in multiple screen profiles. Custom profiles can also be accommodated. For more information, contact GED at (330) 963-5401 or visit
