Kalciyan Tecnología del Vidrio s.a. is one of the most important companies in Argentina’s glass business, and a leading name throughout the whole of South America. The company, founded in 1977, inaugurated a new plant in 2008; it’s one of the most modern flat glass processing sites in Latin America, and boasts over one hundred employees.
A long-time Forel partner, Kalciyan particularly appreciates the edge processing range: the most recent installation was made just a few months ago, at the Buenos Aires site – a Forel line consisting of an Art. EM edging machine, an Art. DM drilling and milling machine, and an Art. VW vertical washing machine. This is one of the most appreciated solutions for this type of processing, and can handle glass arrissing, grinding, polishing, drilling, milling and washing.
The advantage of having three different stations in the line is an elevated productivity: thanks to this layout in fact, several glass panes can be processed at the same time.
