Fusing Furnaces with Movable Table

GFM 1425 fusing furnace with motor-driven lid opening

Movable table on swivel castors

Glass fusing workpieces from a fusing furnace (Jo Downs Glass Design Ltd.)

Fusing furnaces in the “GFM” series were developed for special production requirements. The GFM series combines the impressive quality benefits of the GF series with the option of charging the table outside the furnace. The table runs on swivel castors and can thus be moved freely.

The scope of delivery includes a flat table for fusing work; additional tables can be added. An interchangeable table system on rails is especially economical, as one table can be charged while the other is in the furnace. Instead of flat tables, different tables with different heights can be used if the furnace is to be used for higher components, for example.

Fusing Furnaces with Fixed Table

GF 240 fusing furnace GF 920 fusing furnace

GF 75 fusing furnace

Closely arranged roof heating elements protected in quartz glass tubes for direct, even heating of the glass

The fusing furnaces in the GF 75 - GF 1425 series are designed for professionals. Closely arranged heating elements protected in quartz glass tubes ensure very good temperature accuracy during fusing or bending on the complete area of the table. All models have an appealing, dual-shell stainless steel housing. The level table surface made from rugged, durable refractory material and the lid opening with gas pressure springs as support simplify charging of the furnace. The optimized electrical connected load ensures that the glass heats up quickly.

Standard design

  • Heating elements protected in quartz glass tubes
  • Controller integrated on the right side of the furnace to save space
  • C440 controller included in scope of delivery
  • Defined application within the constraints of the operating instructions
