Glaston FC500 gets a thumbs up from Toughglaze
As the saying goes, when the going gets tough, the tough get going. That’s why Toughglaze UK Ltd has selected the most advanced Glaston FC500 furnace for installation at the turn of 2014/15.
With this new installation, Toughglaze will maintain its superior quality for established customers as well as improve efficiency with the potential to develop new business. Based in North Acton, London, the family-owned company has been operating successfully in its chosen market for over 20 years.
The directors of Toughglaze UK Ltd chose the Glaston FC500 furnace after having experienced the robust reliability from previous glass processing equipment machines supplied by Glaston.
“Our customers have been asking for better quality glass in larger sizes,” Bharat Varsani, Director at Toughglaze, explains. “Now we have the capacity for glass up to 6 meters with the use of the FC500. Additionally, the furnace enables us to produce flatter glass that we can then further process in our own laminating factory.”
“By investing in the latest state-of-the-art equipment such as the Glaston FC500 furnace, Toughglaze UK Ltd will be positioned to offer customers the continuity of supply with improved quality.”

“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
