Glaston Group has received an order for a high-speed Thermo Plastic Spacer (TPS) insulating glass line from roof windows manufacturer Velux.

The order is registered in the company’s fourth quarter 2019 order book with it due to be delivered in Q3 of 2020.

The B'Speed TPS will be delivered to JTJ Sonneborn Industrie in Sonneborn, Thuringia.

JTJ is a subsidiary of Velux and manufactures insulating glass units for roof windows for the Velux site in Sonneborn and other locations.

JTJ is already using three high-speed lines from Bystronic glass for the production of insulating glass units with stainless steel spacers.

"We have been very satisfied with these three Bystronic glass insulating glass lines that we have had in operation already for many years", explains JTJ Managing Director Bernd Kühl.

"Due to the increasing demand of triple insulating glass units and after long, in-depth investigations and test phases we are convinced of the TPS manufacturing process and the quality of the TPS insulating glass units.

“Furthermore, the investment in this future-oriented TPS technology is our clear commitment to Germany as a business location and especially to Sonneborn.”

Its special system configuration enables very short cycle times, particularly in the production of triple insulating glass units.
