TPS® – THE MOST MODERN SOLUTION FOR INSULATING GLASS MANUFACTURING
What is TPS®?
TPS® is the most modern and flexible solution for insulating glass manufacturing. Unlike conventional technologies, TPS® allows applying the thermoplastic spacer material directly onto the glass plate.
Glaston launched this technology into the market in 1994. To date, there are over 150 TPS® systems in use globally – and several million TPS® IG units installed.
With TPS®, separate IG production processes, such as bending, sawing, connecting, filling and butyl coating, are no longer necessary. Plus, spacer widths can be changed automatically without manual intervention.
What is more, TPS® simplifies organization within the factory since even mixed production can be flexibly manufactured on a single line in an endless mode – without any loss of time.
