Glaston sells FC Series tempering line with latest technology to the Netherlands

Glaston Group has closed a deal for a FC Series tempering line with Dutch company Steinfort Glas, an expert in glass processing serving the construction, furniture, interior design as well as the automotive industries.

The order that was received in early February 2020 is booked in Glaston’s Q1/2020 order book. The line will be delivered during the last quarter of 2020. In addition, the deal includes a co-operation agreement sharing resources and linking companies core knowhows to common learning curve.

Steinfort Glas, a longtime Glaston customer, has always invested in the latest technology in order to deliver leading, inspiring glass. Glaston’s latest FC Series is a masterpiece of intelligence equipped with the latest technology for efficient tempering, resulting in top quality of the processed glass.

Due to the customer’s very wide product range where serial sizes are typically small and need for a reliable and flexible tempering solution for efficient, mixed production, the technology of the FC Series tempering furnace was taken yet another step further. Equipped with the Chinook, the market’s most intelligent heating system, based on the highest number of measurements combined with automatic process adjustment, Vortex pro convection technology and the Insight Assistant Pro, that automatically adjusts furnace settings based on the measured glass size and loading pattern information, the solution helps the customer to efficiently handle all product segments from selective windows to coloured automotive glazing.  

“The FC Series is the choice for glass processors looking for top quality at high production rates. By increasing the level of automation, efficiency of operations can be further increased. In this specific project, the degree of automation will be further increased, further improving the loading rate, average quality and yield of the line”, explains Juha Liettyä, SVP Glaston Heat Treatment Technologies.

Steinfort Glas is known for their extensive product portfolio: tempered, laminated, illuminated and interactive glass, enamelled or ceramic printed glass – in all shapes sizes and colours. The company is often involved in unique projects together with architects, designers and builders.

“Steinfort Glas aim to stand out in its logistic and technical performance towards its customers. For that we need a reliable and state of the art tempering line with the highest level of automation. We believe that our cooperation with Glaston, being the technology leader in this field, will provide us with the best solution for that”, says Jan Anjema, Director at Steinfort Glas.
