Edgetech Representative to Discuss Warm-Edge Technology at Glass Processing Days
Gerhard Reichert, vice president of international business development for Edgetech I.G. will be delivering a presentation on "Improving Long-term Energy Performance of Insulating Glass in Buildings" at the Glass Processing Days conferences in Shanghai, China, May 14 - 15, 2007 and in Tampere, Finland, June 15 - 18, 2007.
As part of his presentation Reichert will discuss methods and trends for improving quality and energy efficiency of insulating glass units through automation - specifically focusing on just-in-time online automation of the butyl extrusion process.
"The quality of an insulating glass unit is a key factor in determining the life expectancy of a unit," said Reichert. "It is well known that workmanship is one of the key considerations affecting quality and long-term durability of an insulating glass unit and that automation helps raise quality through consistency, and reduction of the human factor."
