Title
(EN) EFFICIENT ASSEMBLY OF INSULATING GLASS WINDOWS
(FR) ASSEMBLAGE EFFICACE DE FENÊTRES À VITRAGE ISOLANT
Abstract
(EN)
An insulating glass unit (IGU) assembly line capable of interleaving double and triple pane IGUs in accordance with an IGU production schedule. Visual indicators or prompts instruct operators at the assembly line in configuring a sequence of IGUs. Triple pane IGUs are assembled with minimal contamination of a center glass lite. A non-contact Bernoulli pad is used to lift a glass lite off from a horizontal or vertical support that conveys it from a glass washer to an assembly station. Each of multiple pads has a capacity to lift approximately seven to ten pounds. Use of multiple pads per glass sheet or lite allows lites having dimensions up to 70 by 100 inches (assuming glass thickness of one quarter inch) to be assembled.
(FR)
Cette invention concerne une chaîne de montage de vitrages isolants (IGU) permettant d'alterner entre IGU à double vitrage et à triple vitrage en fonction d'un calendrier de production d'IGU. Des indicateurs optiques ou des alertes indiquent aux opérateurs travaillant sur la chaîne de montage la configuration à adopter pour une séquence d'IGU. Les IGU à triple vitrage sont assemblés avec une contamination minimale du panneau de verre central. Une ventouse Bernoulli est utilisée pour soulever sans contact un panneau de verre à partir d'un support horizontal ou vertical qui le transporte à partir d'un poste de lavage à un poste d'assemblage. Chacune desdites ventouses est apte à soulever un poids de sept à dix livres environ. La mise en œuvre d'une pluralité de ventouses par panneau de verre permet d'assembler des panneaux ayant des dimensions allant jusqu'à 70 * 100 pouces (et ayant une épaisseur d'1/4 de pouce).
