Glaston Corporation has closed a deal with Mexican glass fabricator Crisvisa for a Glaston FC series tempering line.

The order is booked in Glaston’s Q1/2017 order book and the line is to be delivered during the final quarter of 2017.

With a production area of 25.000m2, Crisvisa has a production area of 25,000m2 and manufactures architectural glass. Crisvisa bought its first Glaston FC500 in 2014 and the line was installed the following year.

Demand for architectural glass in larger sizes has increased.

“Jumbo-size glass is traditionally 3.3 x 6 metres. However, the sold FC series machine is capable of running up to w 3.3 x 9 metre-sized glasses. The FC series furnace is the largest tempering furnace sold by Glaston in all of North America,” stated Scott Steffy, Vice President, Sales and Service, Glaston North America.

The repeat order for the FC series continues the collaboration between Glaston and Crisvisa.
