OUR CLIENT:

Polish glass manufacturer producing different types of glass, such as technical, tempered, as well as coloured glass used in making signal lamps for trains, cars and ships.

DESCRIPTION:

The cover is made for a robot equipped with a steel extension arm that picks up a portion of molten glass. The temperature at the vat, which is around 500°C, causes the arm to heat up near the wrist. Now the arm is separated from the wrist with an EVO_shield insulating shield made of durable, highly heat-insulating ceramic. The shield greatly reduces heat transfer from the arm to the wrist. The robot is also exposed to glass splashes, dust and small amounts of steam. The EVO_mold protective cover is made of reflective material, therefore it can reflect up to 90% of heat radiation emitted by molten glass.
