In this arena, Tvitec is fully equipped with technology that allows it to manufacture large panes in a panoply of combinations and shapes. We have capabilities to manufacture panes of insulated glass, laminated safety glass, acoustic and screen-printed glass up to 39 feet (12 meters) in length, with finishes of the highest quality and definition.
This type of technology is more focused on the production of pieces with complex geometries. This is fundamental to meeting the architectural challenges posed by the most state-of-the-art projects. Being of a very high optical quality, it is the ideal solution for buildings that are ‘one of a kind.’
Tvitec has equipped itself with the most advanced technology, which allows us to manufacture large panes into high quality, cylindrical shapes; these come complete with finishes with the same level of quality. Installed and fully operational, we have four curved glass furnaces, capable of satisfying the majority of the demand from this select and unique market. • With Length Bending technology, we can equate piece size with glass type and thickness; as such, we are able to produce radii up to 19.68 inches (500 mm). On the other hand, with Cross Bending technology, we can reach sizes of 19.98 feet (6 meters) with radii that start at 78.74 inches (2000 mm). With a state-of-the-art optical quality, this medley of bending machines allows us to supply versatile solutions, ranging from the most complicated pieces to large- format products.
Similarly, it is possible to incorporate these solutions by combining insulated, safety-laminated, acoustic and screen-printed glass up to 19.98 feet (6 meters) in length, with maximal precision in the end product.
MIND-SET | CURVED THINKING
Nowadays, thanks to Tvitec glass, the boundaries between the interior and exterior of buildings are also being conceived as curvilinear, with finishes that include treatment with selective layers, or solar mediation. Curved glass has managed to overcome a very significant set of limitations.
Nevertheless, it is necessary to change mind-set every time we think of curved glass. In the world of curved glass, you have to think well in advance and find the best solution for each project and not just the solution that allows you to finish up that project quickly. Tvitec professionals advise you.
