Tecnoglass changes all tempering furnaces over to Glaston FC500


In a recent blind test of glass manufacturers in New York City, Tecnoglass of Colombia beat out its competitors by making a real impact on architects and consultants with the glass quality it delivered as part of the bidding process. Tecnoglass delivered visibly superior quality, thanks to its investment in a Glaston FC500 tempering furnace. An order for an additional five more FC500 furnaces followed when Tecnoglass decided to change all its furnaces over to the world’s most modern technology.

The decision to change over to the Glaston FC500 tempering furnace was quite straightforward. Christian T. Daes, Owner and Managing Director explains: “When we saw the new furnace about two years ago at a show, we decided to test one. The furnace features major technology changes. For example, quench marks on the glass have been completely eliminated.”

“The results from our tests were so good that we decided to change all of our furnaces over to the FC500 to have the most modern fleet of furnaces in the world,” he continues with pride.

“We have been very impressed with the high quality of the machines. Also the company provided us with a tremendous amount of support when we first began our production, which we really appreciated.”
