The RAPIDE L500 is the top selling gas filling system with fast-fill technology!
This gas filling system has proven itself for many years and represents the state of the technology. The investment volume of the system is unrivalled in terms of capacity.
The RAPIDE L500 is more than "just" a manual gas filling system. With the integrated IPC the gas filling process is visualised and automatically documented. Only with this product do you have a verification of quality for all filling processes, i.e. for each IG unit – automated, without additional effort. Allocation of the IG unit is executed via barcode. Thus traceability in terms of gas filling is also ensured.
Only the HELANTEC technology makes these advanced possibilities available to you.
The capacity with 1 filling line is approximately 600 units1) And with 2 filling lines the capacity is approximately 1200 units1)
Due to short cycle times, the RAPIDE L500 is excellently suited for integration in the insulated glass production line (on-line, i.e. downstream from pressing and upstream of sealing). Operation is intuitive thanks to the minimal number of operating elements. Nevertheless the RAPIDE L500 offers every conceivable convenience. Among other things this also means increased capacity through integrated intelligence. You will only find these features, in this quality and equipment at HELANTEC.
- The size of the IG unit is detected automatically during the filling process and the filling process is adapted accordingly.
- For expensive gases (krypton) there is a gas saving program.
- A second gas inlet enables parallel connection of argon and krypton, for example. At the touch of a button you can change between the gas types, without additional calibration effort or loss of time when changing cylinders.
- Adaptation and storing (depending on the requirement) of different filling parameters via the IPC (integrated production control).
To get started, the gas filling system can be equipped with one filling line. Thanks to the modular structure, retrofitting a second gas filling line at a later point in time is easily possible. For production of triple-glazed IG units, systems with 2 filling lines have proven to be very effective, because the two chambers can then be filled simultaneously. This is particularly advantageous for windows with an asymmetric structure. Because each filling line works autonomously, both chambers can be filled with different gases, without difficulty!
Through precise synchronisation of filling capacity and suction capacity, filling of large IG units is easily possible. In addition RAPIDE L500 can always manufacture pressureless and flat-positioned IG units.
If service is required, a diagnosis can be executed quickly and easily per remote maintenance via the modem integrated in the IPC. Through this measure service costs are reduced to a minimum. A routine manufacturer maintenance contract is not necessary!
With the HELANTEC RAPIDE L500 gas filling system you are ideally equipped for the challenges of your market and for future market developments. You will find more information on the high efficiency of the HELANTEC fast-fill technology and IPC under the respective headers.
