Cardinal Adds Ashton Lines to Two Plants

Seaming lines from Ashton Industrial will be installed in Cardinal Glass' new plant in Virginia, as well as its Tumwater, Wash., plant.

According to an announcement from Ashton, the seaming line being installed in Virginia will include on-line edge deletion of coated lites and automatic laser marking. Ashton says the system is complemented by its off-line diamond belt seamer for processing special shapes introduced to the line at the washing stage.

At Cardinal's Washington plant, Ashton will provide a customized, high-speed seaming/arrissing line. According to Ashton, the line is specially conceived to directly link the cutting and breaking operation to a tempering furnace. Lites are staged automatically around the system and delivered to the furnace load bed without contacting the coated glass surface.
