Expanding opportunities with better quality product with Glaston FC500
With a keen focus on quality and customer service since the company started operations 15 years ago in 1999, Super Toughened Glass Ltd of Park Royal, London is currently installing the largest Glaston FC500 tempering furnace to date in the UK. The drivers behind this investment were to meet the growing demands of their customers in the commercial sector and to reduce their environmental impact with more energy-efficient production.
To further cut back on overall energy consumption, Super Toughened also recently upgraded the blowers on its Tamglass Pro-Convection line with Glaston’s energy saving (S) option.
“When considering the investment, we had no doubts of who was going to supply our new furnace. Ever since the company was founded, we’ve always purchased Glaston machinery. Quality is our prime focus. That’s why we chose Glaston again.”
– Amit Patel, General Manager at Super Toughened

“I was very impressed at how quickly we were able to install the new ProL-zone upgrade on our existing lamination line – only 3.5 days – and I’ve been equally impressed with the high-quality output,” says Rob Carlson, Mechanical Engineer at Tristar Glass, Inc.’s Tulsa, Oklahoma facility. “Glaston’s convection technology has exceeded every expectation. The system really does work as well as they said it would – maybe even better!”Read more

“With growing demands in our market, we needed to bring our older Glaston furnace up to modern standards.
