sedak, a Germany-based manufacturer of oversized insulating and safety glass, has installed a new line for automated production of insulating glass units.

“The biggest advance is the radical reduction of the production time. Insulating glass used to be fabricated manually by several qualified employees over various days,” says general manager Ulrich Theisen. “Now, the total production needs less than an hour.”

The fully automated production line is up to 475 feet (145 meters) in length and has a load capacity of 992 pounds per linear meter, according to the company.
