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 purchased the Glaston iControL and scanner upgrade to solve any concern with software or spare parts availability before they became an issue. Once installed, the upgrade helped us win a large glass façade project in Indonesia that required extremely high quality. Both we and Glaston can be proud of the high level of quality achieved,” says Matea Franjić, Chief Operating Officer (COO) of Kristal in Vitez, Bosnia and Herzegovina.Read more
