Preparing - Cutting, Edging, Washing & Machining
TIG has three Computer Numeric Controlled (“CNC”) cutting lines with real-time production and inventory tracking that are able to cut windows that are up to 108” x 144” and 2.0 – 30.0 mm thick. Large sheets of glass are removed from inventory storage racks and moved to the glass cutters via overhead cranes.
TIG has a two chamber furnace that can temper glass up to 72” x 140” and 3.0mm – 25.0mm. TIG also has a 78" inline Lisec washer to clean off any contaminates that may have gotten on to the glass from other processes.
At Thompson IG, our furnace uses the latest convection heat methods to achieve minimal distortion and to exceed ASTM Standard Specification C1048.
You can order tempered glass from 1/8" up to 1/2" thick.
