Rapidloader Floor Loading System

Rapidloader allows you to load your glass cutting table of up to 5x2 pick-up positions in fully automatic and precisely timed intervals. To ensure high functional safety and to avoid damage and tilting of glass sheets, each sheet is pulled out from the bottom of the glass stack.

Thanks to its compact, floor-mounted design, the Rapidloader floor loading system can be installed in halls of almost any height.

Features:

  • Fully automatic loading of glass of up to 5x2 pick-up positions
  • Rapidloader can load different types and sizes of glass
  • Glass peel-off from the bottom for fast, safe and gentle glass pick-up
  • Performance-optimised drives for high acceleration and transport speeds
  • System-controlled re-stacking of cover sheets to a freely selectable rack position
  • Intermediate layer detection for display of spacer pick-up
  • Possibility of controlling Rapidloader centrally in combination with HEGLA cutting lines
  • Rapidloader is compatible with the Rapidstore storage expansion and is an optional part of the Rapidline system cutting line and other HEGLA cutting lines

Optional Features:

  • Available as a version for standard sizes (6,100mm x 3,300mm) and for split size jumbo sizes/GBM (3,810mm x 2,750mm)
  • There are four different designs available:
    • Stationary version that picks up the sheets from one side
      (access one position)
    • Stationary version that picks up the sheets from both sides
      (access two positions)
    • Moveable version that picks up the sheets from one side
      (access up to five positions)
    • Moveable version that picks up the sheets from both sides
      (access up to ten positions)
  • Number of storage positions can be freely selected

Functional Description:

When Rapidloader receives a glass request (from the cutting system or manually), it travels to the required rack position. While travelling, the transfer frame of the floor loading system is tilted up in the vertical pick-up position.

The feeder travels towards the rack until the glass stack is detected. Vacuum cups pull off the sheet from below and then tilt it electromechanically into the transport position of Rapidloader.

The glass sheet is fed to the cutting system or a buffer table on top of transport rollers.
