Glazing machine


For glazing glasshouses (greenhouses), BSE Ymond has already developed and build many BSE Glazing machines. This heavy duty scissorlift is mounted on tracks and has a very high loading capacity compared to many other smaller arial lifts. Because the conditions during greenhouse construction are often heavy, our tracked scissorlift is the preferred choice of machine for glazing activities. Besides glazing greenhouses the machine can also be used to glaze shopping malls or garden centres, because of their similar construction.

The BSE Glazing machine is specially designed to pick up, manipulate and place glasses in greenhouses. For this purpose specially designed glass manipulators are mounted on the long sides of the platform. These glass manipulators are equipped with glass racks that can lift glasses by vacuum. The arm of the glass manipulator can be hydraulically moved up or down. The manipulators can be moved manually or hydraulically (option) along the side of the platform. To raise glass packages to the platform, glass lifts can be mounted on the platform or on the undercarriage at the front and back of the machine. These glass lifts can be highly automated  as the hydraulical functions for lifting, rotating, turning over and pushing the glass package on the platform can be incorporated. On the platform, glass trolleys can move along rails to receive the glass package and present the glasses to the glass manipulators.

The BSE Glazing machine is equipped with a diesel engine (complies with latest greenhouse emissions regulations) that drives a set of hydraulic pumps. These pumps provide drive on the tracks and all other hydraulic functions. All machines are standard delivered with remote control. Control of forklift mast functions, track driving and lifting/descending the platform is proportional.
Amongst others the BSE Glazing machine can be delivered with the following options:

  • Hydraulically driven glass manipulators
  • Extra glass lift on the back side of the platform
  • Platform extendable at 2,3 or 4 sides
  • Step-up boxes on the platform for extra working height and storage space
  • Fork lift mast, loading capacity up to 3000 kg
  • Inverter for 230VAC power supply on undercarriage and/or platform
  • Automatic leveling
  • Engine status display
  • Cabinet(s) on undercarriage and/or platform
  • Frame for forklift mast for easy lifting long material
  • Crane on undercarriage
