Improved Edge Compression for windshield bending lines

Meet OEM edge compression requirements


Three reasons for choosing the Improved Edge Compression (IEC)

1.

Improved edge compression control

2.

Higher edge compression level

3.

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 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.
