PLG buys entry-level Glaston RC tempering line and then upgrades


Still when the market demands changed and customers reached out, PLG realized that they couldn’t go on without a tempering furnace. “We wouldn’t be able to offer products that met the new legislation – so it became a necessity to invest,” he said.

The Glaston RC Series tempering furnace was delivered in the fall of 2018. Then, PLG began to learn more about the direction their customers were going, what they really wanted from the tempered glass and how to meet those expectations.

As PLG’s customers began to request more Low-E glass, the addition of a bottom scanner enabled the glass processor to produce higher quality glass with less waste. Again in early 2020, PLG responded to growing needs by installing a Vortex Pro convection system with Insight Assistant for more precise control of the convection air.

“We’ve come a long way in mastering the tempering process and further developing our capabilities along the way to be in sync with where the market is going. By adding step by step, rather than buying a line with all the bells and whistles, we have been able to expand on-the-go to match the evolving demands of our customers.”
