For Bystronic glass, the glasstec 2014 trade fair which took place in Düsseldorf, was dominated by the 50th anniversary of its Bützberg, Switzerland division.

In addition to the anniversary celebrations, its solutions for architectural and automotive glass processing proved popular with trade fair stand visitors. Live machinery presentations each day gave a deeper insight into the technologies.

“From the first day, we held many excellent and positive discussions with customers and interested parties, whilst also being able to conclude various agreements at the trade fair”, Bystronic glass CEO Dr. Burghard Schneider said.

“We were able to exhibit relevant solutions in line with varying customer requirements and we now look forward to positive post-trade fair business. Even at this stage, we can say that glasstec 2014 was a successful trade fair for Bystronic glass.”

Its B’Speed TPS insulating glass production line stretched the entire length of its stand. The line can produce triple insulating glass units in the same amount of time it takes other lines to produce double insulating glass units.

The B’Speed TPS is characterised by various additional developments. For the first time, individual customer wishes can be accommodated to allow the TPS insulating glass unit seal to be positioned exactly where desired.

The application and sealing of the TPS spacer is then performed in one single work step.

This year’s celebrations for the 50th anniversary of the Bystronic glass Bützberg division in Switzerland culminated at glasstec 2014.

A rustic Swiss style hospitality cabin could be found in the middle of the trade stand. It offered guests daily gastronomic treats, with Swiss culinary specialities served between 17:00 and 18:00.

Guests from all around the world could try typical Swiss raclette cheese while being entertained by two alpine horn players.
