Smaller test equipment is also available for R&D facilities. Call our sales team today to discuss your application.
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.
Casso-Solar Technologies Multi-zone Graphical User Computer Control for complex shapes with localized programmable 3-Axis Crease Heaters that follow the glass as it bends in the tight radius areas.
Continuous preheat and tacking ovens to allow for proper de-airing of windshields and to tack the glass for further processing in the autoclave. Glass temperatures exiting the preheat are 100-120°F and exiting the tacking oven at 170-180°F.
Dryers combined with rolling hearth furnaces can fire decorative or conductive coatings into the glass. The glass is then annealed or partially heat strengthened, for further processing.
Cooling systems utilize ambient or chilled air, depending on required glass exit temperatures. Air impinges on the product from above and below through high efficiency nozzles, which minimizes the capacity of the cooling blowers.
For windshield applications, PVB is preheated prior to stretching to contour the shape of a windshield. PVB can be stored in low moisture rooms on multiple roll storage devices, to condition the moisture content prior to use
