Dialum makes its customers’ dreams come true


For Dialum, an avant-garde glass processor in Santiago, Chile, keeping up with the latest technology available has always been natural. “This is what has helped us be chosen for some of the most prominent architectural projects in our region,” says Dialum’s owner Don Fernando Diez. “There is no such thing as a complex project – rather each is a great opportunity for us to continue growing and dreaming with our customers.” To support him in achieving his customers’ dreams, Fernando just purchased a large Glaston FC Series tempering furnace, complete with numerous advanced features.

“Our customers today are looking for glazing solutions with maximum efficiency and increasingly larger sizes. In addition, eliminating glass aesthetic issues, such as anisotropy, is currently a very hot topic. That’s why we decided to purchase a furnace that can temper bigger glass sheets of 3,300 x 7,200 mm and control the visual quality in the best possible way,” explains Fernando.

Glaston’s delivery not only will include the flat tempering furnace but also includes the Chinook Pro with top and bottom convection circulation, as well as the Insight Assistant Pro, iLooK integrated online glass quality measuring system and Insight Online Reporting for live information and notification.

“Glaston has been a great partner for Dialum over the years, and we hope this will continue as we still push to grow. The company is a world leader in what it does. It has the latest technology and is always investing in R&D. This is very much in line with the spirit of Dialum and the reason we chose them as partner.”

“We’re the new kids on the block with our latest offering of digital ceramic printing on glass, bringing affordability to one-off glass pieces that can be tempered into a long-lasting masterpiece. It was all by chance that we met Dip-Tech at Glasstec in Dusseldorf in 2016. After 18 months, we’ve brought our business idea to fruition,” says Charlie Hill, owner of Washington Art Glass in Tyne and Wear, UK. “The key to our success has been an investment in Glaston’s RC Series tempering furnace for top-quality, flat glass results.”
