Due to the addition of the easy-LAM IFL, Viwinco will be able to laminate a wide variety of glass sizes on a lay-up area of 2600 x 5000mm in a single pass, and to do so extremely efficiently. In comparison to autoclaves, the easy-LAM IFL reduces energy costs by up to 60%. The company's self-prescribed motto "Energy-efficient windows and doors. Where production and sustainability go hand in hand" is met by the energy-efficient lamination process. Today, over 40% of Viwinco’s annual energy consumption used in their manufacturing facility, is supplied by the neighboring solar field with over 7,800 solar panels.
With the introduction of the new easy-LAM IFL, Viwinco’s new glass facility will expand total capacity and enhance product quality. "From the first contact in 2019, we had a good feeling about the project discussions with BÜRKLE. The easy-LAM IFL convinced us with advanced technology and fast cycle times and is, from our point of view, the right approach for glass lamination in the future have been researching autoclave-free lamination processes for well over a year prior to meeting with Burkle. The easy-LAM IFL utilized technology and processes that aligned with our vision for future of autoclave-free glass lamination,”explains Skyler Barnes, Director of Research and Development at Viwinco.
