1999-05-10 | Energy saving

There has long been a demand in the glass processing industry for a bending and tempering furnace suitable for a wide range of production. A universal furnace is still nowhere to be seen, but considerable technical developments have taken place in horizontal bending and tempering equipment. This article reviews the production equipment for bent tempered architectural glass available today including new furnaces, and illustrates the structure of the market. It also discusses the reasons why bent architectural glass is still to make a real breakthrough, and has a look at future trends.
