Glaston Corporation has closed a deal with US based Manko Windows Systems for an FC Series tempering furnace and a ProL lamination line.
The order was received in several parts, most of the value in the second quarter and the remaining in the third quarter. The lines will be delivered to the customer by the end of this year.
Manko Windows Systems has three manufacturing locations and provides aluminium windows, curtain wall, and insulated glass, among others.
In 2002, Manko purchased it first two Glaston tempering lines. Manko and Glaston continued their long partnership in 2015, with the delivery of two FC Series tempering lines, and then a third line in 2016.
This new furnace will mark the fourth FC machine to be delivered. All four lines have the iLook Distortion online measuring system, and this latest line will come with the new iLook Anisotropy online scanning system that visualses and quantifies the level of anisotropy or iridescence in heat-treated glass thus giving the processor a tool to continuously monitor quality and improve production methods.
Manko has also ordered an ProL flat glass lamination line. The ProL laminating furnace’s convection system provides heat transfer.
This gives consistent glass quality and an up to 100% capacity increase over traditional infrared heating.
