Our strength is both in machines for short runs in specialised applications, such as special windshields for the ARG market as well as in the demanding technology for the long runs of the OEM industry. In the architectural glass technology we supply lines and furnaces for curved and flat construction glass, laminated and tempered. We add value to our customer’s business by supplying systems where the machine delivery comes with extensive training programmes, effective technical support and reliable after-sales services.Glassrobots’ newly introduced flat tempering system RoboTemp™ is an interesting new design that combines the advantages of true convection furnaces and radiant furnaces.

The advanced design offers important new benefits to glass processors aiming to boost productivity and to achieve the best possible quality of production.

• Tempering of special coated glasses – Using convection heating, coated glasses can be tempered virtually at the same rate as clear glass.
• Increased productivity – Up to 50% increase on clear glass and 100% on soft-coated glasses over conventional electric radiation heated furnaces.
• Superior optical quality – The furnace can operate at a lower system temperature with a more rapid processing time meaning that the glass spends less time on the system’s rollers.
• Flexible production – Mixed production (clear, tint and coated) of the same thickness can be run in the same batch. This offers flexibility much greater that the electric radiant heat tempering furnaces.

In addition, Glassrobots is proud to introduce the TFA3evolution™ technology for modern windshield bending enabling bending of difficult windshields with sags up to 32 mm. The good quality and dimensional accuracy of end products with high capacity are based, among other innovative features, on an enhanced bending program with FuzzyBend™ control.
