Another round of expansion and investment has been completed at NTG in Tennessee with further increased cutting and tempering capacity.

ASHTON INDUSTRIAL’s SEAMMAXX-PRO™ high speed fully automatic seaming and batching has been installed to link the two, virtually labour-free. Lites can be fed in random sizes directly from cutting, by the existing breakout operator.

They are automatically measured during the seaming process and the SEAMMAXX-PRO™ calculates whether these will fit side-by-side across the furnace bed. Rows of lites are automatically created in this way, one behind the other, which then pass thru the washer directly to the furnace, with no additional manpower.

On their way thru the seaming line, at an average cycle time of just 10 seconds, each lite is laser-marked with the company logo and other data, and coated glasses destined for inclusion into Insulating Glass units are simultaneously edge-deleted.

Gavin Gaskins, President, underlines NT Glass’ role as a full service custom fabricator with two production facilities totaling over 250,000 square feet centrally located in metro Nashville, TN. Their highly skilled team members have the experience and knowledge to handle any type of glass fabrication whether it is a single piece, involves complex fabrication, or comprises a large volume project. The full range can be viewed on www.ntglass.com and includes Tempered & Heat Strengthened, Laminated, Insulated Units, Fire Rated, Painting & Printing, Bent Tempering, Bulletproof, and even special marine glazing.
