Lindes of Mexico makes largest investment ever in Glaston FC500
Starting with innovative glass solutions for the building and housing market in 1980, Lindes, formerly Vidrios Marte, in Mexico City, Mexico, is today known for being an ambassador of sustainability. It is also the country’s leader in the fabrication and distribution of insulating glass.
To help support its goal of bringing eco-friendly comfort to the people it serves, Lindes purchased a Glaston FC500 tempering furnace with the iLooK online quality measurement system. The furnace was located in the company’s third factory, H3, which started up in 2014 and represents the largest investment of the company ever.
Lindes sees insulating glass as a special element to create comfort and sustainability. Linde is a Spanish word that means a line that divides one part from another – and Lindes as a company helps people define spaces around their lives. Insulated glass helps negotiate with the environment how much light, noise and heat people needs to make spaces comfortable and sustainable.
The lofty goal for the new H3 furnace has been to double the production of insulation glass, while passing the benefits of energy savings and better comfort through its use on to the people of Mexico.
“There are lots of tempering furnaces in Mexico, but only one that can temper Low-E. That gives us an edge over our competitors.”
“When there’s a problem, the Glaston experts get online and we can work with them. They have always managed to solve our problems. And we have always received support when needed.”

“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
