Glasstech, Inc.: Glass Bending and Tempering Equipment

Glasstech, Inc. will highlight its innovative technology and programs at GlassBuild America 2007, September 10-12, at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta, Ga. Glasstech will be located at booth 3923.

The company will feature its energy-efficient FCH2™ Architectural Flat-Glass Tempering System, the advanced roll-forming technology used by its family of Cylindrical Radius Bender (CRB) Systems, the EPB-L™ high-efficiency windshield system, and its recently announced “No Net Cost” System Performance Audits.

Glasstech’s FCH2 Architectural Flat-Glass Tempering System is a gas-fired forced-convection system that processes clear or coated glass, including hard- and soft-coated low-e glass. Under normal circumstances, the FCH2 can heat clear glass at a typical cycle time of 30 seconds per mm of thickness and high-performance, soft-coat low-e glass at a typical cycle time of 33 seconds per mm. Reduced heating time provides for higher quality with less distortion, improves productivity, results in superior flatness and reduces processing cost.

Gas-fired forced-convection heating offers the lowest energy costs per square foot of glass processed and has been proven to be as much as 50% less expensive to operate than standard electric heaters. Also, gas provides 25% shorter cycle times.
