Spanish glass fabrication company Merkacristal has been a Mappi partner for many years, and recently purchased the company’s ATS 4.0 2500×4200 furnace. This is Merkacristal’s third Mappi furnace.
“We have been using Mappi furnaces for many years, and we can say without a doubt that with the new ATS 4.0 they exceeded our expectations,” says Francisco Pac Solana, manager with Merkacristal. “[This is] a tempering furnace that is really user friendly, and that allowed a great increase in productivity and at the same time, thanks to the new GHBS Eco-Convection system, the best flatness of the glass.”
He continues, “From our experience after three furnaces, we would recommend Mappi, because they are reliable machines, they efficiently manage the energy needed for each job [and are] a true partner and a valuable support in our growing path …”
According to information from Mappi, the GHBS, Xtreme Profile Convection is one of its exclusive solutions that allows companies to process all coated glass from the last generation, including low-E with 0.01 emissivity.
Merkacristal fabricates glass for the furniture industry, bathroom furnishings, and interior and exterior architecture.
