Dubai-based Emirates Glass, one of the leading processors of architectural flat glass in the Middle East and wholly-owned by Dubai Investments, has installed the Glaston Vortex Pro Jumbo Series high-performance glass tempering furnaces to upgrade its product offerings with high-quality, larger tempered glass.

The Helsinki-based Glaston Group’s latest tempering furnace features state-of-the-art technology and is designed to produce large glasses that are up to eight meters long and to temper high-quality coated glass with the lowest emissivity.

The machine is equipped with ‘Edge Control’, an active edge control technology that incorporates intelligent cooling profiling which automatically adapts to the glass size and minimizes edge lift. The furnace also has an online quality measurement system called ‘iLook’, an automated scanning system for measuring the optical quality of tempered glass, eliminating the need for manual measurement of glass distortion and aesthetics.

The installation of the new furnace is in line with Emirates Glass’ dynamic growth strategy, which focuses on providing high-quality products to meet the growing demand for tempered glass across the Middle East region.
