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.

“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

“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!”Read more

“With growing demands in our market, we needed to bring our older Glaston furnace up to modern standards. Thanks to the installation done over Christmas break, we were able to save time – to get up and running quickly at the start of the year,” says Sanjay Meghani, Director, at Super Sealed Units Ltd in Dunstable, UK. “Today, we are able to temper higher performance glass, achieve flatter results and utilize the full furnace bed for greater volumes.”Read more
