Company Background / History

FF.I.C. - FOR ALL YOUR FURNACE NEEDS

F.I.C. was founded in 1980 and was the first in the glass industry to be accredited to ISO 9001 for the design and manufacture of All-electric Glass Melting and Boosting Systems.

Our expertise is in the design of conventional and electric furnaces and manufacture of Electro-heat Systems for melting, boosting and conditioning in a wide range of glass types and manufacturing processes, including float, TV panel, fibre and TFT/LCD/PDP.

F.I.C. Electric Melting Systems offer the benefits of increased pull rate, reduction in pollution emissions, improved glass quality, a longer furnace life, and many more.

Within the range of Electrode Holders manufactured by F.I.C. is our unique High ‘Q’ Holder in which the cooling circuit is replaceable by one person in less than 10 minutes. Our recently announced Maxi ‘Q’ Holder is the first in the industry to combine a solid end piece thereby eliminating any weld in the electrode block and an enhanced cooling system giving 57% increased water flow over competitive weld free holders. We also supply other holder types such as splash cooled and conventional types.

We also supply other holder types such as splash cooled, weld free and conventional types.

F.I.C. produces a special HVP (high vapour pressure) Forehearth designed for volatile glasses such as borosilicate, lead and opals.

We also offer the Isothermal Unit that provides very efficient forehearth sidewall heating, improving glass conditioning by eliminating side to middle temperature differences.

The engineering team within F.I.C. also provide on-site services such as hot drilling, holder repositioning and electrode advancement.
