Nuremberg 12th to 15th July 2022 - FENSTERBAU FRONTALE - Jekko

Nuremberg 12th to 15th July 2022 – FENSTERBAU FRONTALE


Fensterbau Frontale is scheduled for July and Jekko won’t miss the chance after exhibiting in 2018.

Taking part in this show is a not-to-be-missed showcase for the products dedicated to the glass sector.

Jekko will be an exhibitor in hall 4A-317 with a 73-sqm stand and will put on display an electric-powered SPX532 equipped with a JVM800 vacuum manipulator for glass panes, an MPK06 minipicker and the new entry MPK10 – both fitted with vacuum manipulators for glass panes – as well as the JVL450 and JVL600 vacuum lifters with their dedicated trolley for laying-up and transport. All these models and their tools are the company’s flagship products dedicated to the glass pane handling and fitting sector.

The Treviso-based company offers a wide range of machinery designed for glass pane fitting. Minicranes and minipickers have reduced weight and compact dimensions, are easy to transport and stabilize, and can be fitted and integrated with a glass pane manipulator or a vacuum lifter to become machines ideal to operate in confined spaces and in the top floors of a building. The minicranes used in the construction of skyscrapers are an example. These cranes can operate and be stabilized on the top floors so that glass facade fitting at lower floors is fast and simple. Glass panes can even be lifted from the ground floor up to the floor where they’re needed by means of a radio remote controlled winch. On the other hand, minipickers have a right/left turret rotation of at least +/- 9° making them the sole pick&carry lifters that – when equipped with a 360° continuous rotation, tilt and swing glass manipulator – can drive through narrow places with a panel placed on their side keeping it within the crane loading gauge. Glass pane fitting is controlled via a wire control or a radio control. These machines can be fitted with tools such as hydraulic or electric manipulators or vacuum lifters for glass pane handling.

Battery-powered hydraulic manipulators are used for an accurate fitting of glass panes and are faster and more effective of vacuum lifters since they’re radio remote controlled by an operator, can move in all four directions and can also tilt and rotate for a precise and careful positioning of the glass panes.

Vacuum lifters are used with any crane fitted with a hookblock lifting system to move glass panes in a fast and safe way.
