Latest technology tempering line sold in the Netherlands
Glaston Group has been awarded a contract for an FC Series tempering line with Dutch company Steinfort Glas, an expert in glass processing serving the construction, furniture, interior design and automotive industries. The order was received in early February 2020 and the line will be delivered during the last quarter of 2020. In addition, the deal includes a co-operation agreement sharing resources and linking the companies’ core knowhows to a common learning curve.
Steinfort Glas, a longstanding Glaston customer, has always invested in the latest technology to deliver leading, inspiring glass. Due to the customer’s wide product range where serial sizes are typically small and need a reliable and flexible tempering solution for efficient, mixed production, the technology of the FC Series tempering furnace was taken a step further. It is equipped with the Chinook intelligent heating system, based on the highest number of measurements combined with automatic process adjustment, Vortex pro convection technology and the Insight Assistant Pro, which automatically adjusts furnace settings based on the measured glass size and loading pattern information. This solution helps the customer to efficiently handle all product segments from selective windows to coloured automotive glazing.
