Lumiglass doubles laminated glass capacity
Dubai, June 14, 2010
Lumiglass Industries, a subsidiary of Glass LLC which is wholly owned by Dubai Investments, has nearly doubled its production capacity of laminated glass with the installation of a new pre-laminating unit.
With the installation of the new machine from Benteler, the Germany-based global automotive supplier, the company’s laminated glass production capacity has increased to 35,000 sq m per month, which is nearly twice its previous capacity.
“In adding this state-of the-art machine to our equipment line-up, Lumiglass increases its laminated glass capacity by almost 100 per cent at a stroke,” said Sultan Al Zarif, general manager of Lumiglass Industries, one of the largest manufacturers of laminated safety glass in the Middle East.
“The new machine will help us meet the rising demand for laminated glass, and allow us to boost our competitiveness by delivering superior quality, low-emission laminated glass products.”
“At Lumiglass, we always seek to be at the leading edge of glass development in the Middle East. Our strong focus on innovation, coupled with our constant upgrade of equipment and facilities, allows us to produce and supply a wide selection of high-performance laminated glass to customers around the region,” Al Zarif added.
The new pre-laminating unit can produce laminated sheets with areas of 2,600 mm in width, 5,500 mm in length, and approximately 4 mm to 100 mm in thickness. It is designed to handle soft coatings, low-emission glass, temperable glass, and photovoltaic solar cells, among others. – TradeArabia News Service
