HEGLA TaiFin has now expanded its expertise in the glass processing sector by launching the CTF Series of flat glass tempering furnaces. A full convection tempering furnace that incorporates new patented technology has been specifically designed for low-e products as well as all glass types needing to be tempered.
The new flat tempering furnace provides outstanding quality with an innovative convection system incorporated, that achieves excellent results in sophisticated architectural glazing products.
For glass processors it is essential that a furnace can meet the tough demands of today’s glass market as well as tomorrow’s. It is vital that the overall bow is excellent with the edge curvature needing to be as near to zero as possible. In addition the local bow or roller wave must be an absolute minimum. In all these respects the glass anisotrophy measuring systems that are fitted to HEGLA TaiFin CTF Series furnaces achieve the highest quality.
The technical advantages that have been incorporated into the design include a number of patented attributes. A patented convection system, a convection position control as well as, under hot conditions, a patented heater exchange.
The furnaces have been meticulously designed to provide excellent quality of all glass types and coatings. Thanks to a flexible modular design the machine design caters for up to 3600mm glass width with no limit in length and can handle glass thicknesses from 2.85mm – 25mm.
The range of HEGLA TaiFin furnaces can be customised to individual requirements and are all equipped with a simple, user-friendly interface with special software functions. These ensure that the glass tempered products are absolutely flat and the chance of any anisotropic variances in the glass are eliminated.
Used in conjunction with HEGLA-HANIC GmbH software, each glass run can be perfectly optimised .
In addition to this the HEGLA automated systems can be equipped with the company’s proven laser marking technology, to further simplify and streamline manufacturing methods.
Steve Goble, HEGLA UK, Managing Director commented, “Despite the uncertainty of current times, it never hurts to look ahead and make plans. The CTF series is a gamechanger that will set benchmarks for the industry.”
