Press bending modules for Glaston EcoMax bending lines


Glaston press bending section upgrade provides an easy and cost efficient solution to upgrade your existing bending line to OEM production without compromising mixed production capability.

The press bending process is relatively simple with only two phases: heating the glass and using molds to press it into the desired shape. This gives you very high output, good repeatability and tight tolerances. Press bending modules are available as an upgrade for Glaston/Tamglass EcoMax bending lines.
