Service Upgrade Kits for older IG Manufacturing Equipment

1.

Electronic components are discontinued?

This happens faster than you think and 1:1 replacement is almost never possible. In the event of damage, you first have to make complex hardware and software adjustments in order to be able to produce again. Long downtimes are then unavoidable.

2.

Earn money reliably even with our older machines

Avoid financial losses due to incalculable situations. Our specialists from the Glaston Service Upgrade Team analyse your system. You will receive a qualified risk analysis from us, which will serve as a basis for decisions on how to proceed.

3.

Various upgrade kits available

We have developed and prepared various upgrade kits for you, which we offer at a calculable fixed price plus installation costs. Leave nothing to chance – be proactive and upgrade your IG manufacturing equipment now!

All at a glance.


The procedure step by step:

  • Hardware components that are no longer available must be replaced
  • Within a few weeks, we deliver prepared upgrade kits, install them in your systems and make any necessary adjustments
  • Plannable conversion duration, e.g. by use of maintenance slots
  • Afterwards, the new components are again available from stock
  • Training of your staff through instruction in the new components
  • Updating of the machine documentation and modification of the spare parts lists

“We’ve always been an important partner to the large window manufacturers in Finland. Listening to their needs and responding has helped us stay competitive in this market,” Tommi Nousiainen, CEO of PLG in Finland, explains. “We were not specifically looking for a tempering furnace. But when our customers began to require high-quality tempered glass, we moved swiftly ahead with an entry-level Glaston RC model. Since then, we have already been able to upgrade the line twice in response to the rapidly evolving market.”

“Although our goal is to be one of the leading smart and safety glass manufacturers in Finland, we didn’t have the time needed to install a completely new furnace,” says Raiko Mäkeläinen, Technical Manager at Lasiliiri. “Instead, we went with a significant Glaston’s FC-zone upgrade, which enabled us to leapfrog to the very latest heating technology in a quick, cost-effective and sustainable manner.”

“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!”
