Tecnoglass invests new Glaston machinery to stay ahead
After a game-changing decision in early 2013 to change all six of its tempering furnaces over to Glaston FC500, Tecnoglass of Colombia has continued to set new records. Now Tecnoglass is setting additional records by being the world’s first owner of the latest GlastonAir. The company is also investing in Glaston ProBend. The two machines will give them another leap ahead of their competitors by being able to provide the ultimate glass products.
“There is a clear need for true high-end glass in the facade market. With the new GlastonAir, we will be able serve this market with a quality level that the market has never seen before. Additionally, the thin glass capability allows us to provide lighter structures, for example, for cooler doors and other appliances,” says Christian T. Daes, CEO of Tecnoglass.
“Glaston ProBend will be used to provide sophisticated facades for customers in the US,” says Armando Del Vecchio, Technical Manager at Tecnoglass. “Until now, only a few suppliers have been able to serve this market. With the new machine, we will now be able to deliver special high-quality bent glass.”
