FLACHGLAS continues investing in Glaston modernizations.
Still running strong with upgrades
“We feel investing in upgrades is a good opportunity to get better energy consumption, better process quality, longer machine running life – and save money. Our oldest Glaston tempering furnace has been producing glass for over 30 years, a good example of machine durability and quality!” says Martin Werner, Technical Manager at FLACHGLAS Wernberg GmbH.
The FLACHGLAS Group, headquartered in Wernberg-Koeblitz in Bavaria, Germany, has been serving quality-conscious architectural and transportation sectors throughout Europe since 1938. Today, the company’s 3 plants throughout Germany all have Glaston tempering furnaces producing a comprehensive range of glass split evenly between these two sectors.
References include windows and safety glass for high-speed ICE trains and yachts, along with glass for the world-renowned The Shard in London, the Microsoft office in Munich, the prominent Axel Springer building in Berlin and many more.
A key to the company’s success has been its commitment to ongoing improvements in the performance and energy efficiency of its equipment.
“We feel upgrades are the best way to keep running strong,” says Martin, who joined the company in 2017 and now heads up the technical department. “Our machines are older, but all are still efficient and running strong because of the continual upgrades and care.”

“For nearly 25 years, our second-hand Glaston tempering line served customers with quality glass tempering. But after numerous upgrades and rebuilds, it was simply time to invest in a new tempering line. Glaston’s RC Series fit our needs. Now, we’re looking forward to operating it for the next 20+ years,” says Mats Pihlqvist, Site Manager at Industriglas AB in Jönköping, Sweden.Read more

“We saw the move into laminating glass as an exciting opportunity to explore. It gives us an open door to many new areas, such as security, acoustic and decorative glass. After thoroughly reviewing six lines, we chose Glaston’s ProL lamination thanks to its convection heating and simplicity,” say Consolidated Glass Corporation’s Brad Bartley, General Manager, and Lindsey Merryman, Lamination Line Program Manager.Read more
