Why do we need convex bending glass tempering furnaces?
Time:2024-06-12 Hits:361

The convex bending glass tempering furnace has emerged as a pivotal innovation in the glass tempering industry. Its primary function is to avoid direct contact between the film layer or ink surface and the conveyor rollers, thereby addressing the growing demand for high-quality bent tempered glass.

Ensuring Coating Integrity for Low-E Glass

For Low-E glass, which is prized for its energy-efficient properties, the integrity of the coating layer is crucial. To maintain its effectiveness, the coated layer of bent tempered insulated glass must be securely sealed between the insulated glass panes. Typically, the Low-E coating is applied to the inner side of the exterior glass pane, ensuring optimal performance and protection.

Meeting the Design Needs of Modern Architecture

Modern architectural trends increasingly incorporate wavy exterior glass curtain walls built with bent tempered Low-E insulated glass. This design requires the precise alignment of convex and concave bent tempered glass panels. The Low-E coatings must consistently be on the same side, ensuring seamless connectivity and the desired aesthetic of the wavy curtain wall.

Overcoming Challenges with Traditional Bending Machines

Traditional bending glass tempering machines pose limitations, primarily because the glass bends upwards during processing. To avoid damaging the Low-E coating, the coatings must face upwards in the heating furnace. However, producing continuous wavy or S-bend Low-E glass, which involves the glass surface bending downwards, necessitates the use of a convex bending glass tempering furnace.

The convex bending glass tempering furnace effectively addresses these challenges, making it an indispensable tool for manufacturers aiming to meet the sophisticated design and quality demands of contemporary architecture.
