Looking to upgrade and extend the lifetime of your machinery? Three reasons for choosing Vortex Pro
Glass quality as never before
Increased productivity with flexibility
Matchless energy efficiency
Vastly improved control
Glaston’s latest advancement in convection technology, the unique Vortex Pro convection system, vastly improves the control of air placement onto the surface of the glass and allows the operator to precisely control the thermal profiles.
The Vortex Pro advanced convection control system is a cost-efficient way to upgrade and extend the capability of your existing machinery. With Vortex Pro, you can gain years of value-adding productivity by moving into new glass tempering areas, such as the improved processing of clear, laminated and Low-E glass.
Glaston Vortex Pro can be used to upgrade all Glaston Tamglass CBHF, CHF and BHF models.
