Modern partnership

The selection of 4.0-ready solutions now available for the glass industry is expanding, courtesy of the partnership between Intermac and Movetro, a leading company in the storage and handling of flat glass sheets, the companies have announced.

With Movetro, Intermac intends to add to its range of 4.0 ready products for the glass industry in the era of digital manufacturing; through this partnership, Intermac intends to present itself as the ideal partner for the design and creation of fully automatic and integrated turnkey systems and special lines.
Movetro supplies sorters, shuttle warehouses, automatic loading devices, loaders and tilting machines.

“Movetro and Intermac have been working together for a number of years, and this partnership represents the consolidation of the significant ongoing investment that the group is making in development and growth in view of the 4.0 revolution,” Intermac said.

As a result, Intermac has expanded its product range, entering the sector dedicated to the storage and handling of flat glass sheets, while Movetro now enjoys the advantages of working with a major industrial group (Biesse), including international visibility and a widespread distribution network.

“We have integrated the Movetro range into our product offering due to the fact that the company represents excellence in the design and installation of automatic systems for the storage and handling of flat glass sheets; we share the same goals of total quality and maximum reliability,” Gianluigi Casadio, director of the glass and stone division, said. “Thanks to our strategic union with Movetro, since 2017 we have been able to rely on a superb and extensive range of products that complete Intermac’s offering, with a focus on 4.0 solutions.”

Intermac and Movetro will be exhibiting at Vitrum 2019, which will run from October 1 to 4 in Milan, where they will present products that can be used to create new business models on the basis of automated and interconnected digital production.
