Glaston has received an order for an advanced flat tempering line from a leading North American glass manufacturer.

One of the leading glass manufacturers in North America needed additional capacity with a high quality end product.

The highly tailored line, with the highest amount of automation and flexibility for high capacity thin and thick glass production, met the customer’s needs.

Kimmo Kuusela, VP Strategic Accounts & Innovation, said: “This is a highly customised solution, taking advantage of our flexibility and ability to respond to the customer’s requirements and needs. This tempering line fits perfectly for customers requiring extreme capacity with the highest flexibility.”

The close to €4 million order will be delivered in Q4/2022.

Stricter building regulations and tighter glass quality requirements drive demand for safety glass. In North America, the glass processing market shifted towards high-quality safety glass processing some years ago and has further accelerated.
