Maps Ats 4.0 reaches tempering temperatures within an hour, includes Mappi Multizone Heating System, which exploits a network of electronically controlled sensors to apply constant and highly concentrated heat only where glass is detected. Energy consumption is reduced through its Energy Saving System, which uses a computerized ventilation system to optimize fuel consumption.

This is further enhanced using a technically advanced 350mm insulation. The ATS Eco 4.0 also uses a patented roller mechanism, which synchronizes the movement of ceramic rollers providing perfect glass flow without the requirement for use of sulfur dioxide in the heating process. A smart cooling system also introduces more precision to the cooling process, reducing iridescence.
