Mappi and Tecnoglass – a shared passion for excellence

Tecnoglass started in 1963, year after year they invested in technology, skills and innovation. Today the company is specialized is in the production of laminated, tempered and insulating glass.
At the centre of the Tecnoglass manufacturing process is the tempering furnace, this role has recently been occupied by a modern Mappi ATS 4.0 2500 by 5000, which has joined a Mappi Lammiflex 2500 laminating machine, and which fits well into a production chain that collects some of the best examples of technology applied to glass processing.
Regarding his selection criteria, Marco Sardano of Tecnoglass said, “I am convinced that the choices of an entrepreneur influence his destiny, that’s why I always paid the utmost attention both to the choice of collaborators and of machinery and equipment. Imagine my surprise when I discovered that the ideal tempering furnace was produced a few kilometres from my company headquarters. It is ideal because it guarantees a constant quality, always higher than what the most stringent standards require. It is ideal because it allows me to create perfect glasses both from an optical and functional point of view.

“There is one thing that impressed me perhaps more than others in this machine: it represents the perfect portrait of the company that conceived and produced it, and that I learned to know and appreciate.

“In ATS 4.0 there is all of Mappi: there is the ability to take care of people, because it is an absolutely user friendly machine, just as the whole Mappi has taken care of us in every occasion; there is the ability to look to the future, today ready to overcome the quality challenges that will come tomorrow, thanks also to the perfect integration with the most modern technologies of Industry 4.0 and with Siemens’ MindSphere.

“My, and Tecnoglass’s, choice is made in the present and will accompany us in the future.”
