Tamglass Sonic high convection tempering line
Tamglass Sonic brings glass processors the answers to all new challenges in the handling and tempering of Super Low-E glass products, based on the patented profiled high convection heating system with ultra-speed convection blower technology. Sonic has capacity to process all commercial and temperable glass types and it is tailored specifically to the off-line coated low emissivity glass products. Glaston has sold 15 Tamglass Sonic high convection furnaces and the demand for high capacity and high performance tempering lines continues to grow.
The efficiency of the tempering process and the quality of the final glass product are further enhanced by the introduction of a sophisticated process control system, APC™ (Automatic Process Control). This automatic process control system is capable of measuring all the key properties of glass, such as thickness, emissivity and glass load and tailoring the process settings in line with the particular requirements of the type of glass to be processed. This is achieved thanks to the use of integrated machine vision based control unit that automatically creates furnace settings for easy operation.
Tamglass ProBend bending and tempering line
Tamglass ProBend’s patented zero tooling bending mechanism converts the production to be simple like flat tempering and also feasible in one-off production. The new bending and tempering line ProBend is sufficient for big projects also due to large glass sizes and capability for all type of tempered (also LowE 0.04), heat-strengthened and laminated glass.
Heating with combined radiation and convection together with accurate and quick bending guarantees the quality to be sufficient even for laminated glass. Bent, heat-strengthened glasses laminated together brings huge savings in production time compared to bending and annealing process.
With ProBend’s state-of-the-art process LowE glass can be processed even the coating against the rollers. The maximum glass size is 2440 x 4200 and the minimum bending radius is 1000/1500/2500 mm. It is possible to combine the system with a separate flat glass section up to max glass of 3300 mm x 6000 mm. Glass can be from 3 to 15 mm when bent and from 2.8 to 19 mm when flat.
