Abstract (en)

A thermoplastic spacing bead (7) is applied to a glass pane from a moving extrusion nozzle (1) with guide walls (2,3). At a corner the nozzle is raised slightly to prevent the bead adhering to the glass and is rotated (11) so that the inner guide wall (3) forms a sharp corner (13). The outer guide wall (2) produces a rounded edge (14). Application of the bead (7) then continues in the new direction (15). An Independent claim is also included for producing a sharp corner and smooth join at the final corner by moving the nozzle outwards while in the raised position and taking the bead past the original start point before forming the last rounded outer corner.

Abstract (de)

Beim Auftragen eines thermoplastischen Abstandhalters (7) auf eine Glasscheibe im Zuge der Herstellung von Isolierglasscheiben wird thermoplastischer Kunststoff aus einer Düse (1) strangförmig auf die Glasscheibe aufgespritzt, während die Düse entlang des Randes der Glasscheibe bewegt wird. Wenn mit der Düse (1) eine Ecke im Abstandhalter (7) zu erzeugen ist, wird die Düse (1) um eine senkrecht zur Glasscheibe ausgerichtete Achse (4) verschwenkt, welche Achse (4) im Bereich der Innenecke einer im Abstandhalter (7) zu erzeugenden Ecke liegt. Beim Verschwenken der Düse (1) wird diese von der Glasscheibe etwas abgehoben, so daß der Strang aus Kunststoff, der aus der Düse (1) ausgepresst wird, auf der Glasscheibe nicht anhaftet, während die Düse (1) geschwenkt wird. <IMAGE>
