It's a new year!

It's a new year, and we have several new exciting products!

Neptun has come out with an automated glass handling and seaming system, called Bravo
This is an amazing system, that will pick up a piece of glass, move it to a docking station, seam all four sides, and then move the glass off to another station for offloading.
Jack and I saw the system last week, and it is short of amazing!
I'll be posting a video on Youtube in the next day or so.

Something else we have that I personally think will make a big impact in the industry is the IMMMES (yes, that's 3 m's in  the name) Water treatment system.

Imagine a 100% closed loop system, that filters out the glass swarf down to less than 10 microns.
No chemicals to balance, no bearings to fuss with (like in a centrifuge) no plates to pressure wash.
Totally automatic. The glass swarf comes out in dry "bricks" into a disposable bag.

You know the old saying, "the cleaner you keep your machines, the longer they last"

Imagine no longer having to clean out your tanks on your edger. No water bills. No mess from glass swarf. And if you're dumping swarf down the drain, no drains that will eventually need to be replaced.

We have a system going into a major fabricator in April!

If you want more info on IMMMES, let me know!
