MM Tempering and Mappi furnaces

Mappi interviews MM Tempering about their acquisition of a Mappi furnace

MM Tempering is a leader in Georgia’s (USA) glass industry. Three words are enough to define this family owned company, born in 1979: brilliant, unique, and affordable. MM Tempering is involved in the production of tempered glass, shower doors, glass shelves and more. Along the way, MM Tempering has always looked for better partners, and for quality that could help the company to go further on to excellence.

One of these partners is Mappi, the Italian company that produces renowned tempering furnaces. Mappi met with a representative of MM Tempering to discover more about this choice.
“We chose a Fox, the ‘little’ Mappi furnace,” said the representative. “It’s 1500x3200mm, and we prefer it because it’s perfect for our needs. We needed flexibility, ease of use, the opportunity to create small batches, better quality of glass, perfect control of any aspect of the tempering process, full reliability and reduced energy consumption.”

It almost seems like wishful thinking. Have you found all these features in your new furnace?
“Yes, absolutely! The new furnace has only been in operation for a few weeks, yet we have already seen the difference. It’s the hero of our workflow.”

Who are your typical customers?
“We’re proud to be the premier source for custom glass projects, both residential and commercial. Our aim is to be creative, contemporary, classy, and totally eye-catching, able to have pleased even the pickiest of customers.”

Mappi furnaces are well known for their approach to Industry 4.0. Have you found any advantages in it?
“Ease of use is a strength of the new furnace, as it is able to optimize and automate many decisions, leaving the operator free to focus on what is truly relevant. We are really convinced that we have found the best partner for our company.”
