Windows are the essential components of construction that serve several important purposes in our everyday lives, such as bringing sunlight into our homes, helping conserve energy, adding elegance, style, and atmosphere to our homes, and improving the look of the façade of the building. Although they are everyday products, window production is very complex. Since they consist of a specially profiled frame, several seals, panes, and are mechanically complex, special woodworking machinery is needed to produce them. In addition to the wooden parts, the most affordable window segments are made out of PVC. This is due to the necessity of thermal protection since thermal protection regulations pose high requirements on the performance of a window.
Soundproofing is also a field where further research is being conducted in the field of window manufacturing. Windows need to be easily and continuously installed and need to be able to withstand the weather for decades. This results in modern window building being a very demanding endeavour performed using complex industrial machinery. Most of the window machinery is very efficient, as mass production of windows is only possible with automatic production processes.
All industrial machinery and tools that are used to build windows fall under the category of "window machinery". The simplest machine is the specially fitted mitre-saw, which is used to cut windows with precision into the desired shape. Window machinery involved in the full-cycle window manufacturing process is completely run by computers and includes CNC operated window manufacturing machinery. These automatic machines conduct a variety of tasks in the process of window production, from the millimetre-precise cutting of the shape to the development and sealing of the glass pane, long-lasting welding and gluing of the window.
This type of woodworking machinery is particularly suitable for mass production. With the appropriate programming and loading, they can manufacture complete sets of windows, even for individual construction projects. Furthermore, since they usually use loading robots, these machines do not require a lot of personnel. However, they require a high amount of investment and maintenance, which is especially true of used window machinery. Simple window machinery is a standard feature for every carpenter and window manufacturer’s workshop.
Window manufacturing machinery is used to saw, glue and weld wood and plastic. For this reason, it is necessary to have a good extraction machine installed near the window machinery since a lot of pollutants are emitted during this process, particularly during the welding of plastic. Furthermore, windows are fragile goods and can break very easily. Glass panes require special attention during transportation and delivery. With an automatic machine, fractures and other damages are minimised. Window machinery can be loaded manually, which is a task that can be conducted by assistants. However, only professionals (such as industrial mechanics with good programming knowledge) should be employed to programme and maintain the machines in order to preserve the used window machinery and other used window manufacturing equipment.
