Dual Seal Glass is a leading independent commercial sealed unit manufacturer based in Huddersfield who is setting new standards in the architectural market after making a substantial investment in Bystronic Glass equipment.
The progressive Bystronic installation at the company has already increased output and enabled the company to further diversify its product range. The state-of-the-art IG line with robotic sealing enables Dual Seal Glass to produce larger sized sealed units for curtain walling on large architectural projects.
As such the specially tailored Bystronic equipment allows the company to produce units up to 500kgs in many various shapes and sizes. The fully automatic IG production line with a capacity for units up to 2.7 x 4.5 metres has been extended to include a gas press as well as special conveyor that further automates the line to lift the larger units. This continuous improvement process will also shortly see the facility seal with both silicone & Polysulphide from the same sealing robot, additionally the automatic sealing of Schueco structural units will be possible on line.
The Bystronic Spacerbender was another key element to the installation. The first of its kind in the UK the Spacerbender provides a two-way alternate processing system for unfilled aluminium or warm edge stainless steel profiles. This provides Dual Seal Glass with a cost effective method of saving on materials thanks to the endless connection of spacer bars.
Dual Seal Glass has an established reputation in the commercial sector and with this investment in Bystronic equipment, intends to further improve their capabilities and on-site efficiency within the company. This installation is one of the largest of its kind and the equipment was chosen by senior management at the company because of the superiority and reliability of the Bystronic brand.
Geoff Hancock Managing Director at Dual Seal Glass considered technical investment at the company of vital importance because of the increasing market demands in product specification, quality and new building regulations whilst continuing to remain competitive. The level of investment was substantiated by the design, engineering and product performance of the Bystronic range.
Mr Hancock comments, “This company has developed a reliable standing in the IGU commercial sector throughout the UK and with this installation we intend to further raise our standards. We approached Bystronic because of the formidable reputation the company has in the market, knowing we could achieve excellent results with the machinery.”
“We are now in a position to increase production and diversify the products available knowing that we can attain consistently high standards for our customers at a realistic cost. This investment has extended our size capabilities adding another dimension to our current extensive range and will help to strengthen our market position within the UK”
Brian McDonald, Sales Manager, Bystronic Glass UK comments ; “Bystronic Glass aims to provide customers with efficient, tailor-made solutions. We look forward to continuing our working relationship with Dual Seal Glass as their corporate position strengthens and their key target sectors expand.”
