One of the Europe’s largest furnace for sophisticatedarchitectural glass
Although the company was newly established in Cubillos del Sil, León, in northwest Spain in 2007, Tvitec (Technical Glass Transformed) has rapidly made a world-class name for itself when it comes to supplying demanding architectural projects internationally. Now with the most recent addition of Glaston RC350, it leads in Europe with one of the largest tempering furnace to process glass in sizes of up to 12,000 x 3,300 mm. The 60-meter-long furnace puts Tvitec at the forefront when it comes to technical performance, since it includes all of Glaston’s very latest technological developments to ensure exceptional glass quality for all types of tempered construction and architectural glass.
“We are continuously trying to serve the needs of the discerning architectural glass market. Designs of new buildings are requiring ever-more sophisticated and technical glass solutions. This means that we need to move ahead rapidly to have the best machinery to be able to produce such high quality glass with special properties that are in demand. We need to stay ahead as the market develops,” says Javier Prado, CEO of Tvitec
In this spring, Javier hosted a large inauguration ceremony for his latest investment – Glaston RC350. This massive furnace will temper glass in sizes up to 12 meters (12,000 x 3,300 mm) for double glazed, tempered, laminated and printed glass applications, enabling Tvitec to double the current size of its products. Along with the Glaston 350, Tvitec purchased a high-capacity Glaston XtraEdge double edging line.
