Reduce manufacturing costs with advanced foam dispensing process
A major window manufacturer was looking for a way to reduce the costs associated with producing windows in the shapes desired by today's architects, designers and builders. A key challenge in the process is bending architectural window frame linears into smaller, more concise radius curves. This can be a slow and laborious step that leads to a tremendous amount of waste if not done correctly. After finding the right foam material formulation and adopting a hydraulic fixed ratio (HFR) system to fill the lineals, the company has cut production time in half, with a significant reduction in waste.
