What is RoboFlow® PT?

Completely automated robotic passthrough system for welding and cleaning vinyl window frames & sash

Go from welding through cleaning and on to the next step in the production process with just one operator.

How to improve precision

System automation leveraging robotic efficiency & precision

Learn how RoboFlow® PT improves safety, increases quality, reduces maintenance, and more.

Continuous flow

Continuous flow from welder through cleaner and offload eliminates handling and speeds up processing, reducing operator fatigue.

4 robotic cleaning stations

Provides safe, simultaneous processing for fast, consistent cleaning with no manual touch-ups, which reduces handling.

Quad stack

Provides greater throughput with product variety, allowing you to produce more windows per shift with reduced fixture changes.

Minimums
RoboFlow PT minimums
The standard design allows the system to achieve minimums of 14" x 11.5" on sash to ensure every product you make can flow through this system.
Even Heating
even heating welder plate
Dual zone heat plates heat evenly up to 4 levels high and are easier than ever to maintain with individually fused cartridge heaters.
Configurable Conveyors
RoboFlow PT conveyors
Choose conveyor quantity and length to suit your product mix and save space. Quick-replace belts and automatic sizing make these conveyors unique and simple to maintain.
Robotic Cleaning
RoboFlow PT cleaning tooling
An optimized tooling package and robotically precise "orthogonal" cleaning for industry-best aesthetics and flexibility.
High Throughput
RoboFlow high throughput
From improved clamping and optimized tooling packages to spring knives mounted to the bottom pull-ins, GED designed the RoboFlow PT to achieve the shortest cycle times in the market.
Chip & Dust Management
ionized air cannon
Ionized air cannons and an optional chip conveyor help keep dust down and away from the critical portions of the machine to prevent jams and maintain precision.
Motion Activated Cameras
motion activated cameras
Four cameras are mounted to record the robotic cleaning for troubleshooting. Add up to 4 more cameras anywhere on the machine to capture footage of real-time operation.
