GED Introduces the SIGMA™ Automated Welding and Cleaning System

The fastest, most compact system available

Twinsburg, OH – May 4, 2006 | GED Integrated Solutions announces the availability of the SIGMA automated welding and cleaning system, capable of producing three frames every two minutes with one operator. The SIGMA system is also the most compact system available, occupying 30 percent less space than competitive systems.

SIGMA’s increased output with minimum labor is possible through innovations like multi-stack welding, automated transfer and four-point cleaning. The SIGMA system is capable of welding four frame or sash profiles per cycle. The straight-line system features automatic pass-through from the welder to cleaner to offload, reducing handling and increasing efficiency. It is also fully integrated, accepting remote data input for sizing of the welder and auto-selection of cleaning modes.

The SIGMA system’s parallel welding configuration ensures strong corners and fast cycle times. A fully programmable cleaner eliminates set-up and provides flexibility and fine-tuning of cleaning.

Available for frame, sash and combined applications, each SIGMA system is custom-engineered for individual production needs. As a part of GED’s complete line of glass and window fabrication equipment, the SIGMA system is backed by the company’s leading training and support services.
