# Improved Edge Compression for windshield bending lines

## Meet OEM edge compression requirements

### Improved Edge Compression for Tamglass ESU type bending furnaces

This upgrade for the ESU bending furnaces has been developed to enhance glass edge compression. Better cooling in the annealing section is the most efficient solution to achieve the required edge compression for windshields to meet OEM requirements.

In the Improved Edge Compression system, factory air is conducted to an air-air heat exchanger located inside the furnace. Since the heat exchanger has more cooling surface and air volume than in a standard model, it provides more cooling power. The bigger temperature difference between the bottom of the final bending section and the annealing section results in improved edge compression.
