Best in Glass Processing – the motto and mission statement. At the world’s leading trade fair of the glass industry, Glasstec in Dusseldorf, the expert in flat glass processing LiSEC presented its latest innovations. And demonstrated that design and industry make a perfect match

Glass, mechanical engineering, and the production of insulating glass ...

Machinery and plants for flat glass processing are often in use for a period of 20 years or more. At least that’s true for LiSEC’s industrial products. Robustness and a long service life are the high-quality signature features of the technology of this Austrian company. Likewise, the unpretentious design of the machinery is timeless: “Design thinking” as a synonym for long-lasting quality – and a prerequisite for the sustainability of plant and machinery.

Industrial design rethought

The aesthetic design of industrial machinery often seems to be a matter of minor importance. The fact, however, that industrial design can not only be visually appealing but also even generate added value during the production process is impressively proven by the successful cooperation between LiSEC and Spirit Design based on the motto “Industrial design rethought”. Since 2015 the innovative methods of design thinking have influenced the design of the plant and machinery. And it has become obvious that in connection with the highly functional material glass an outstanding product with the power to shine has evolved.

Flexible add-on options thanks to a modular structure

Flexible forms are also a basic requirement for decades of smooth use of plant and machinery: especially when it comes to flexible extensions and to adding newly-developed tools for flat glass processing, it is important to deliberately keep the design of the machinery simple and open. The positive impact of reduced “modest” industrial design on the functionality of the production machines was evident in the successful presentation and the great interest shown by trade professionals in autumn 2016 at Glasstec, the world’s leading glass trade fair in Dusseldorf.

Flat glass machines with design-driven innovation?

By showing great courage and innovation, LiSEC has been able to set new standards in the design of industrial machines. And on top of that, the company was able to prove that design is suited to creating added value and at the same time further enhance the brand and product messaging. Reliable technology, smart automation solutions, stylish, timeless design – probably the most promising combination for tomorrow.
