A project to customize BIPV stringer to produce architectural double glass modules for the building sector is ongoing.

Mondragon Assembly has received an order from one of the largest world’s leading glass manufacturers, Vitro. This order consists of a project to develop customized BIPV stringer to produce architectural GG modules for the building sector. This customized stringer will give customers flexibility with the different options that they want to achieve.

The stringer will be able to produce flexible strings in the production for BIPV and to customize strings lengths, automatically configuring different string lengths one after the other with a maximum length of 2,800mm. In addition, the machine will be also able to manufacture standard strings with a high production capacity.

The equipment is scheduled to be shipped to Mexico by the end of the year and will be ready for production at the beginning of 2024.
