Laminated glass

When safety is a priority

Laminated automotive glass



Laminated automotive glass request worldwide has increased in the past few years, enlarging the use of safety and acoustic glass in different and further fields  than before. Iocco has seized this opportunity and constantly updates the range of possible engineering solutions to offer to automotive glass  makers accordingly. (
The extensive expertise our Company in Laminated automotive glass provides ranges from the single machine (such as the Vinyl unwinding machine) up to more complex lines  (such as Assembly lines, bag furnace, on line application of components, Autoclave lines, PVB trimming, Inspection Lines on windshield, sunroof, sidelight, with automatic unloading and packaging system). This in order to ensure the best process improvement for our Clients,  guaranteeing the most customizable layout integration in line with safety regulations.
Iocco is integrator of the main vision systems, ensuring the highest quality standards to the glass inspection process. Of course the solutions we provide can be customized thus our Customers throughout the project phases. The extensive expertise IOCCO Company provides ranges from single assembly machine to complete line, Laminated-automotive-glass- processing.

Laminated automotive glass process can be divided into:

Preprocess phase consists of those activities made on glass, preliminarily to the bending and consequent assembly.

After loading, the glass through handling machines is transferred to cut, brake and grinding machines, and then to washing and printing machines.

Iocco is able to design and supply handling connection for grinding machines and also to perform integration of grinding machines, handling  connection with washing machines, integration of washing machines, handling connection with printing machines and integration of printing machines as well.

The preprocess line also includes drying systems for paints, and part of our task is to supply the handling connection  with UV/IR ovens, and to perform the integration with UV/IR ovens. Inspection phase is part of the quality process to ensure the best quality  of the printing, and usually is included into the printing room. It is opportune the production line is equipped with storing systems to  guarantee the glass flow continuity directing it towards the bending by means of connection with bending furnace.

The advantage of integrating the different preprocess equipment guarantees to the Client the plant total management through a sole supervising  software.

Shaping Check is a preliminary phase glass is subject to, before assembly. Grid check follows to ensure the integrity of the printing circuit,  where existing. Before washing, the pair of glasses is divided and flipped wings down to better remove possible impurities.Once the pair of glasses is bent, bending furnace unloading is performed by dedicated equipment in order to free the mold from the glass.

The Assembly can be performed either automatically or semi-automatically.

The pair of glasses undergoes a Pre-Pressing phase to keep the right alignment between inner and outer glass.
A fundamental step in laminating production is the De-airing, to be obtained through either Vacuum Bag Furnace or Vacuum Ring Furnace.  The two mentioned systems adopt different technology and grade of sophistication according to the production needs, in terms of flow rate and manpower, and require significantly diverse financial commitments. Once Deairing is completed, Check After Deairing is performed and glass  is generally subjected to Mirror Boss and Rain Sensor Applications in case of windshields, using different technologies. With regard to sunroofs and sidelights, other types of components and devices are applied.

Automatic Loading and unloading autoclave conveyor system allows a continuous feeding into autoclave.

Finally glass is handled and then packed into a dedicated station automatically
