InKan Ltd of Canada replaces furnace with Glaston RC200
InKan has become known for its unique structural walls and balustrades that are made by ingeniously combining glass with metal. InKan primarily supplies customers on the East Coast of North America and the Caribbean.
After running an early generation Tamglass furnace with good glass quality for the past 29 years, InKan Ltd of Canada did not really feel there was any reason to change to any other supplier. The decision to purchase the new Glaston RC200 was made as part of the company’s expansion plan.
RC200 was chosen to give InKan the size capacity of 96”x 190” (2400 mm x 4800 mm) needed to better serve the market. “We can now temper, laminate and heat soak everything,” Tom Tom Duke, Operations Manager, InKan says. “It helps round out everything else we have in our production.”
“RC200 is a very sophisticated piece of equipment, and the local Glaston service team has done their part very well. The people here are quite happy with iControL, it makes it easy to produce very good glass.”
“After running good glass with the early generation Tamglass furnace for 29 years, why would we go anywhere else?”

“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

“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
