SORTIFLEX is the latest Forvet invention, presented during the Forvet Showcase in February 2021.
Sortiflex has been designed to meet the needs for process flexibility that many glass Companies today have to cope with; Sortiflex works as a temporary buffer to optimize the glass flow from different origins and convey them to a single exit, or from a single origin to several exits. The sheets are removed from the processing line and through a dedicated shuttle.
The glass storage buffers are built with a patented system that provides two overlapping storage levels that double the number of available positions with the same footprint, thus increasing the storage potential without requiring more space in the plant. Depending on the length of the glass, each buffer position can accommodate more pieces.
The SORTING optimization software developed by Forvet enables fully automated in-line control of the production cycle. The software dialogues with the different production stations to optimize their processes and also gives the operator a real-time view of the current production status.
Sortiflex, like the whole range of Forvet solutions, is customizable to the specific needs of the customer.
