Glaston Group has received orders for two of its Vario TPS insulating glass lines in the United States.
The orders from Central Valley Glass & Screen and Sierra Glass Fabrication were booked in Glaston’s received orders for Q1/2021 and will be delivered during the third quarter of 2021.
Increased automation and ensuring high quality in the insulating glass production were the driving factors for the customers when choosing Glaston technology.
The Vario TPS insulating glass lines for the glass sizes of 2700x3500mm are equipped with a line scanner that digitally reads and defines the different shapes of the glasses.
This information is then passed on directly to the Thermo Plastic Spacer (TPS) applicator and the automatic sealing robot, thus saving time and ensuring more accurate end results.
In addition to the increased production capacity with limited failures, local service availability and spare parts support were said to be important for the customers.
Central Valley Glass & Screen in Sacramento has been a source for Californian contractors’ wholesale quality manufactured screens and insulated glass units as well as a source for glazing products and screen supplies since 1997.
Founded in 1976, Sierra Glass Fabrication has become a wholesale supplier for insulated glass units, tempered and fabricated glass in the Reno Nevada, Mammoth Lakes, Bishop and Truckee/Tahoe areas of California.
“Working systematically for the long-term success and continued growth in our glass business led us to look for a proven machine and services supplier to support us in reaching these goals.
“Glaston’s technical knowledge and expertise as an inventor of the TPS spacer system convinced us in making the decision,” said Mike Fedyk,Vice President Operations at Sierra Glass Fabrication.
“We are happy for the trust that these customers place on us and our technology in producing high quality insulating glass.
“Central Valley Glass & Screen had already experience from our FC Series flat tempering technology, and their decision to expand with Glaston’s insulating glass technology is highly appreciated while Sierra Glass is a new Glaston customer.
“We are looking forward to working together in successfully installing the lines and ensuring the smooth production moving forward,” said Kimmo Kuusela, SVP Sales and Service for Americas at Glaston.
