Glass tempering roll

Vesuvius released its newly designed glass tempering roll, the Smartly Driven Plus Rolls. A type of fused silica glass tempering roll, the new design brings greater accuracy, tighter tolerances, greater strength and a lighter weight than the existing designs. Vesuvius’s Smartly Driven technology is an all-mechanical endcap, which uses no glue or resins to connect the ceramic to the endcaps. The original product line was designed to withstand the high temperatures needed to produce tempered, low-emissivity glass.
