Opportunities with no limits
Forel recently launched its new IG line – No Limits 9000 – at a recent ‘open house’.
The new line is designed for large size formats, and can process insulating glass panels up to 9m x 3.30m.
More than 250 guests from more than 30 countries attended the three-day event, which had a special focus on the processing of large formats insulating glass units alongside the latest developments in the production of laminated glass, edging, drilling and milling, vertical cutting, and automation.
Discussing the No Limits 9000, Fortunato Vianello, founder and president of Forel, said: “This is a line designed to respond to the growing demand for large sizes coming from the glass market. Despite being an exceptional product, it is born from the same philosophy from which all our machines were born, for more than 40 years now: understanding the customer needs, foreseeing the market trends, developing new solutions accordingly.”
The event presented guests with the opportunity to discuss topics of interest, inspired by speakers: Giuseppe Vita, head of the technical department from Saint-Gobain Italy, and Maureen Tsagouria, product and market manager, at Saint-Gobain Building Glass Europe, held the conference ‘The evolution of glass for architecture’; followed by a second conference called ‘Market trends in facades’ held by Giacomo Sangalli, commodity manager of Permasteelisa Group.
