Intercept® 2.5

Warm-Edge Spacer Fabrication System

informationAbout

With the Intercept® 2.5, industry professionals are assured an ease of transition, operation and maintenance, along with improved productivity. Built to improve speed, it can produce spacers at a rate of up to 85 feet per minute, achieving up to 8 spacers a minute (without muntins). Industry professionals will recognize the familiar footprint and marvel at the very latest state-of-the-art technologies that easily enables the production of not only Intercept ULTRA Stainless, but also ThinPlate or BlackLine.

Providing superior thermal performance, durability and strength, Intercept 2.5 makes it faster and less expensive to produce than other spacers. Not only does the 2.5 allow for “Just-in-Time” production in the order required without operator errors, it also eliminates internal muntin grid misalignment with precise notching and snap-in muntin clips. The control system provides significant hardware reduction, making operations and maintenance trouble-free. Patented technology ensures the integrity of the 4th corner identical to first 3 corners, for a consistent product.

  • Depending on the configuration for you, an Intercept® will produce 50 to 60 IGUs per person per hour
  • Competitive lines may produce 23 IGUs per person per hour at best

GED’s Intercept® 2.5 and Intercept i-3 spacer fabrication systems, together with SmartExtruder™+ sealant and desiccant application system, IG Oven & Roll Press, TurboCool™ IG cooling system, and RoboSeal™ gas fill, close, and seal system make up the complete line of  IGU production equipment.

GED has recently released the new Intercept LiteLock™ extruder tip for GED Extruders, as well as Intercept SureLock™ spacer locking technology for easy spacer folding.

  • The spacer material is less expensive to source and produce per linear foot
  • The Intercept® system is modular – you add equipment as you need it
  • The Intercept® system is built for high capacity – you don’t have to add an new line to gain more units per shift
  • Typical vertical lines requires 3x the equipment (and expense), 3x the labor, 3x the space, and 3x the cost of the IGU
