Three reasons for choosing the Glaston Heat Strengthening System HS10/HS12
Enables heat strengthening of glass up to 12 mm
More control over the heat strengthening process
More control over quenching parameters
Controlled heat strengthening
The Glaston Heat Strengthening System HS10/HS12 has been developed to provide your machine with the heat-strengthening capability to process glass in thicknesses from 3–12 mm.
Heat-strengthened glass is processed with much less pressure than tempered glass. The critical question in the manufacturing process is how to create a sufficient stress level in the glass.
The Glaston Heat Strengthening System HS10/HS12 controls the cooling coefficient during the heat-strengthening process. The strength and duration of the pressure wave are controlled automatically according to the set heat-strengthening profile.

“We feel investing in upgrades is a good opportunity to get better energy consumption, better process quality, longer machine running life – and save money. Our oldest Glaston tempering furnace has been producing glass for over 30 years, a good example of machine durability and quality!” says Martin Werner, Technical Manager at FLACHGLAS Wernberg GmbH.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
