GMS Laminating Line

The GMS Laminating Line is an automatic PVB laminating line for the manufacture of laminated glass for use in a variety of safety and security applications. The complete line includes an inlet loading table and conveyor, washing and drying machine, automatic lay up section, independent roller pressing machine, outlet offload table and conveyor and autoclave to produce the finished stratified product.

The assembled laminates, consisting of two or more sheets of glass bonded together by a resin interlayer of polyvinyl butyral (PVB) film, are entered into the autoclave after washing, lay up and pre-pressing. Appropriate temperature, pressure and holding time allow the PVB film to reach a state of viscous flux, ensuring good contact with the glass and the dissolution of residual air in the laminate. At suitable heating and pressure conditions, the cycle of the autoclave produces a finished stratified product.
