Revolutionize the production of laminated glass


We have made ProL as easy as possible to operate. The process is practically recipe-free – you need to input only one parameter, and the rest will take care of itself. No more trial and error juggling with a number of variables.

The very concept of ProL is based on reaching a production capacity balance with Low-E and clear glass. ProL uses full convection technology, which does not differentiate between glass types or product modes. The convection system provides accurate and optimized heat transfer, giving you consistently superb glass quality and an up to 100% capacity increase compared with traditional infrared heating.

ProL’s full convection technology gives you the best possible control over the chamber temperature. This eliminates heat loss, which means considerable savings in energy costs.

“I was very impressed at how quickly we were able to install the new ProL-zone upgrade on our existing lamination line – only 3.5 days – and I’ve been equally impressed with the high-quality output,” says Rob Carlson, Mechanical Engineer at Tristar Glass, Inc.’s Tulsa, Oklahoma facility. “Glaston’s convection technology has exceeded every expectation. The system really does work as well as they said it would – maybe even better!”

“Integration is always the biggest risk when combining sections from two different manufacturers,” says Andrew Smith, Group Manufacturing Manager at Independent Glass. Speaking about his company’s recent upgrade, he continues: “The entire upgrade project with Glaston’s ProL-zone went very smoothly. We’ve now been able to increase our laminating capacity, run the line with flexibility and ease – and lower our energy consumption.”

Enhancing its flat glass lamination line by replacing outdated components with new technology, Malaysia-based Crystal Safety Glass (CSG) turned an expensive problem into an unexpectedly positive experience. The move was not easy, but it helped bring the processor’s existing line back up to date with an impressive list of value-added features. For the plant operators, the upgrade lowered the cost of modernizing the existing line and provided less downtime, higher productivity and significant improvements in energy consumption.
