De-airing process

a fundamental step in laminating production

Continuous R&D activity to be the first in the worldwide market

Vacuum bag & ring furnace

“A new important GOAL has been reached”

The biggest De-Airing Vacuum Bag Furnace 

ever built is even technologically advanced

Glass tecnologies international no.6 2019; “IOCCO’s R&D team has made a number of important technological changes regarding the process cycle, the vacuum control system during De-Airing of the glass, and, above all, with regards to energy savings.

IOCCO has recently designed, built and installed the biggest Vacuum Bag Furnace in the world, also able to process large-sized coated ultra-thin automotive glass OEM such as Sunroofs.

These investments carried out by IOCCO to reach goals in terms of energy efficiency, optimization and control of the technological processes, are motivated by the new expectations of government bodies and auto manufacturers; the latter requesting ever more coated, ultra-thin glass in larger sizes, mass produced by plants with ultra-high control and automation systems in line with the Smart Factory philosophy. The needs to maximize product quality and to increase cost saving are getting step by step more pressing from primary worldwide car manufacturers”.

In accordance with their specific requirements and considering what biggest worldwide glass makers need, the qualified IOCCO Team – together with international partnerships – performed a reengineering of the traditional vacuum bag furnace adopting deairing process to which the automotive laminated glass are subjected to.
bag furnace automotive windshield and sidelitesThe final goal was to define 2 standard solutions for windshields and 2 standard solutions for sidelights, modular and highly performing, having reasonable costs and a financial return of investment in about 48 months (24 hours per day). Today said solutions have been finalized and put into operations at the plants of our customers.
As TOP configuration, our vacuum bag furnaces include the tracking production data up to single glass, by the light of current requirements of primary worldwide car manufacturers.
All our solutions allow our customers, through sustainable investments, to increase their production in accordance with the performances agreed in the original request.
The main advantage of the vacuum bag furnace is to produce in full automatic way different kinds of glass, even assembly automotive sideliteshaving complex and asymmetric shapes, and avoiding heavy interventions for change-overs.
During the design and the fabrication particular attention has been dedicated to choosing and checking the installed commercial parts: in fact, all the components making part of the furnace are supplied by global companies, leaders in their specific field.
Thanks to the complete redesign, all maintenances prove to be small and simple to do.
As for accessories of the vacuum bag furnaces, IOCCO is also able to provide both low-vacuum checking systems and different loading and unloading equipment.
