Emaver Miroiterie Martin in La Garde, France, recently purchased an ATS 4.0 tempering furnace from Mappi. Emaver has two Saint-Gobain certifications, one for double glazing (Climalit) and one for tempered glass (Securit), but also handles glass cutting, insulating glass and EVA lamination tempering.
The new furnace can handle lites up to approximately 149 by 86 inches with a thickness that ranges from 4 to 19 mm.
“The new oven is more energy efficient, it can handle low emission glass, it is more reliable and can be remotely controlled via the web. The investment was important, but even today, two months after its commissioning, we can say that it was the right choice. The tempering furnace is the heart of the plant, and today Emaver has a perfectly healthy heart which, I am sure, will take us far,” says Emilie Potier, president of Emaver.
