Reducing expensive set-up times is a priority in the industry

When accidents happen, it doesn't matter where you are. A quarry, a mine, a forest, a construction site - the result is the same. The operator is put at risk, the machine comes to a standstill and has to be repaired. Hammerglass is suitable for many working environments, and in addition to increased operator safety, money can also be saved.

- If there is one thing that is of utmost importance in the industry at the moment, it is the reduction of unnecessary and expensive set-up times and the need to take the machine to a workshop to change the screen - we are talking about insane costs," said Patric Carlsson, Sales Manager for Hammerglass Scandinavia.

Why choose Hammerglass? How can it reduce set-up times?

- With Hammerglass, you get a safety solution that won't shatter, is extremely impact resistant and can withstand debris, sharp branches and stone chips from explosions. Of course, the glass can be scratched afterwards, just like any other surface, but with Hammerglass you decide when you can bring the machine in for repair. In forestry, accidents with broken glass happen every week, and the repairs are usually not carried out on site. This is enormously expensive. With a scratch in a Hammerglass disc, you can get on with the job and take care of the repair yourself if you want to. That makes a big difference in this day and age when we have historically high diesel prices. Every company in the industry is focused on cutting unnecessary costs, and I know we can help with that.

What would you say to those who think Hammerglass is too expensive to invest in?

- I would say this is a big misunderstanding. Hammerglass may be a little more expensive to buy, but that investment quickly pays for itself in the overall lower maintenance costs of the machine.

"Protective grids do not provide sufficient protection for the driver".

- Recently I was on the premises of a client where scrap metal is handled. There, small projectiles were hitting the windscreen almost daily. They had invested in laminated glass and additionally "secured" the driver behind a safety grille. The picture clearly shows that the next shot from the scrap metal goes straight through the windscreen and hits the driver, completely destroying the laminated glass. Grills are not sufficient protection in environments where there is a risk of projectiles. However, it does an excellent job of obscuring the driver's view!
