The high-speed Sonic™ full convection tempering furnace, launched in 2005, is now followed by a new model providing “Easier than ever™” tempering of Super Low-E glass.
In addition to offering world-record performance and processing speed at the highest quality, the latest Sonic™ reduces processing time, maximizes quality and minimizes breakage rates. This is based on profiled full convection technology, patented by Tamglass, and machine vision based automatic process control, Tamglass APC™.
Excellent processing speed, especially for Super Low-E, is guaranteed with the patented profiled full convection heating system that circulates hot air in the process. The Convection Booster units are located outside of the furnace, where the lifetime of the components is maximum and maintenance is easy and fast to provide high uptime.
Tamglass APC™ guarantees best repeatability and quality
The advantages of the unique Tamglass Automatic Process Control system APC™ are, above all, quality and productivity. The system measures key properties of glass, such as thickness, emissivity and glass load after load by an integrated machine vision technology and automatically creates furnace settings for easy operation. The quality benefits result from the elimination of variations and human errors. Adjustments to different sizes of glass in the same loading are automatic and waste production is effectively eliminated.
The launch of the latest Sonic™ is another piece of good news for glass processors looking for profitable growth. The world’s widest Tamglass flat tempering family is the high-quality answer to all processing needs.
