White Aluminum Expands: The Biggest Glass Processing Line with Unique Opportunities

Bavelloni has announced that its first complete integrated pre-processing line in the Middle East has been purchased by White Aluminium Enterprises, based in Abu Dhabi, UAE, to expand its architectural glass processing operations.

"We are increasing capacity by investing in new product lines. A double edger is necessary in order to complete the production flow without any bottlenecks," remarks Jabr Doshan, deputy general manager of White Aluminium.

The line features automatic loaders for large and small size glass sheets, a full double-edging line with diamond and polishing wheels on each side, on-line 6 heads CNC horizontal drilling & milling line and unloading system. It is scheduled for delivery by the end of 2006.

A First of Its Kind
The Bavelloni line features a number of properties in terms of flexibility and sophistication of processing that have not been seen anywhere before. There are no limits for the processed glass sheets, which result in outstanding commercial opportunities. The Bavelloni line features also a fully automatic washing and drying machine. It will multiply the speed of operation, which enables White Aluminium production to keep up with tight delivery times in the high-building-rate market area. Installation and start-up are scheduled for early 2007.

White Aluminium, a large glass fabricator in all Middle East and North Africa, has consistently invested in sophisticated equipment for edging, bevelling, straight and shaped glass drilling, CNC multifunctional centers mostly supplied by Bavelloni in the past 20 years. White Aluminium focuses on handling and processing of maximum glass sizes to better serve its customers.

The company has recently acquired a Tamglass ProE Magnum to boost their tempering capacity. With several earlier CNC machines by Bavelloni, and tempering and laminating technology by Tamglass the company represents an interesting One-Stop-Partner case.

With state of the art processing machinery White Aluminium is able to mass-produce high-quality glass units for major projects and simultaneously manufacture for individually designed commercial applications, such as commercial and residential buildings, hospitals, schools, hotels and military and industrial installations.
