CNUD-EFCO INTERNATIONAL offers global solutions to the float glass industry, i.e. a range of materials and services for the complete tin bath and annealing lehr including top roller machines, bottom casings, side sealing, dross box, bath refractories, roof casings, etc. We are also active in the following segments: pattern glass, automotive glass, electronic glass and hollow glass.
Architectural glass is the largest production segment of float glass. It covers clear, tinted and coated glass. The energy and safety requirements for the buildings and new glass applications require more sophisticated glass properties with on-line and off-line coating processes. The annealing and forming process needs to be adapted to these special glass applications. Thanks to its large expertise, CNUD-EFCO engineering brings a customised solution. Its equipment offers a high yield, allows an accurate control of the glass flatness and stress in the glass.
Solar glass for photovoltaic panels
Due to the increasing pressure to develop in “green” energy, solar energy is nowadays considered one of the most viable alternatives. The support of local governments for this technology boosted the production of “solar glass” for photovoltaic panels, curved mirrors to concentrate the energy on a boiler. CNUD-EFCO’s equipment guarantees the glass flatness during the annealing process in order to optimize the performance of the solar cells.
