Glaston Finland: positive experience with latest heat treatment technology

2012-08-20 | Tempering technology

Flat glass tempering – one of the basic operations that are carried out by glassmakers – must provide the best possible results both in terms of productivity, as well as in performance and energy savings. In this article, Glaston presents its latest heat treatment technology, now put to the test every shift in real operating environments around the world.

Glaston is an international glass technology company and a pioneer of glass processing technology
Ensuring consistent quality batch after batch
RC200™ and FC500™ proven in use
Already sold on every continent and capturing a strong position, Glaston’s RC200™ features innovative Vortex™ convection technology for excellent quality and flatness control. The single blower system and full loading capability save energy, and iControL™ automation system offers the best usability in the industry.
Axiom Group in Australia chose Glaston RC200™ to temper glass in-house as its production volumes grew. “The consistent high quality of the glass it produces, right from the beginning, has been very satisfying,” Axiom’s spokesman says. “The Glaston’s iControL Dynamics™ automation system makes the machine very easy to operate.”
InKan of Canada chose RC200™ for a size capacity of 96” x 190” (2,400 x 4,800 millimetres) to better serve the market. The Vortex Plus™ advanced convection control system allows operators to precisely control thermal profiles. “The temperatures are cooler since the heating can be accurately targeted – which is exactly what leads to the better quality glass,” says Tom Duke, Operations Manager.

Building up low-E production with increased total line throughput
The Glaston FC500™ tempering furnace offers up to 40 per cent more production capacity of energy-efficient glass with 30 per cent less energy consumption, enabling the production of superior quality bed after bed. It also features the largest capability for all glass sizes. ...
