Multiply layers of glass are bent at the same time to create a typical windshield that is used on commercial aircraft. Casso-Solar Technologies has developed a dual access furnace with multiple zones above and below the mold. Zones can concentrate energy in the areas that bend the most while keeping other areas optically perfect. Process cycle on glass thickness of up to 3" including bending, annealing and cooling can be up to 6 hours.
Process is controlled with a recipe driven PLC.
Casso-Solar Technologies Ceramic Ink Drying Systems lead the industry in processing water base, water miscible, terpinol and pine oil based inks, leaded or lead free. Special attention is given to maximize green strength on low resin content inks, allowing for safe handling. Combination systems of infrared and convection enhance drying capability. Cooling systems are designed to bring glass and ink temperatures to or below ambient for overprinting. Dryers are compact, energy efficient with little maintenance over years of service life. Casso-Solar Technologies works closely with the ceramic ink manufacturers and maintains an extensive library on current inks used in the industry.
