The delaminating system is an invaluable tool when laminating problems occur and delivery times are critical to the client.
The delaminating process is very efficient and can take as little as five minutes to complete depending on the size and thickness of the glass – considerably less time and energy than a complete reprocess would take.
In the event of a scratch or defect on one side only of the laminate, only one new piece of glass needs to be reprocessed as the other undamaged piece can be salvaged for re-use.
Profit margins are impacted to a lesser extent by recovering the glass components.
Having a delaminating system as a back-up process, the need for expensive bagging is potentially reduced.
PVB and other interlayer types recovered from the process are free of any glass contamination and can be sold to companies that collect and recycle interlayers.
In the event of a recovered custom laminate, factory or resource planning is impacted to a lesser extent and the factory is more efficient. Delaminating and re-claiming components increases yield.
Machine maintenance, wear and tear is minimised, thereby reducing costs.
Glazing companies that you supply will be grateful that you have a back up process in house to minimise delivery times in the event of a faulty laminate.
