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.

“The idea of investing in Glaston’s ProL-zone laminating furnace started as an R&D project for us. We wanted to see how it functions on one of our own safety glass lamination machines built in-house. The goal for us is to raise capacity and improve our lamination line’s energy efficiency. We’re starting an extremely demanding safety glass project and plan to put ProL-zone to the test,” says Aki Harjunpää, CEO of Jaakko-Tuote, Finland.Read more
