Three reasons for choosing the Improved Edge Compression (IEC)
Improved edge compression control
Higher edge compression level
Improved end product quality
Improved Edge Compression for Tamglass ESU type bending furnaces
This upgrade for the ESU bending furnaces has been developed to enhance glass edge compression. Better cooling in the annealing section is the most efficient solution to achieve the required edge compression for windshields to meet OEM requirements.
In the Improved Edge Compression system, factory air is conducted to an air-air heat exchanger located inside the furnace. Since the heat exchanger has more cooling surface and air volume than in a standard model, it provides more cooling power. The bigger temperature difference between the bottom of the final bending section and the annealing section results in improved edge compression.

“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.”Read more

“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.”Read more

“The market in Vietnam for cars is very large with lots of room for growth. People are becoming wealthier, and sitting in a car is more comfortable than being on a scooter, which may be prohibited in the next few years,” says Nguyen Phuong Tran, Production Manager, and son of Long Nhien Automotive Glass’s owners, about his home market. “The Glaston Matrix windshield bending furnace is a stepping stone for us to tap into this rapidly expanding business of hundreds of thousands new cars per year.”Read more
