It is not a novelty or rare case for those who choose a Mappi furnace, never go back! As a matter of fact, they come back to Mappi as soon as they can take a second one. This happened with Bel Pre Glassworks, a leader in the flat glass industry from 1974. In 2012 they choose a Fox 1500 3200 Eco Convection, the compact machine in Mappi range of products, but also the clear example of our new technologies, construction quality of Mappi tempering furnaces, superior glass quality, reduced energy consumption, and minimized downtime due to furnace setup, ignition and shutdown . In these years, Bel Pre has continued its path to excellence, establishing itself as the leader in the area of Washington for the production of tempered flat glass, setting the trend in designer glass. Now Bel Pre has chosen Mappi again to continue its growth: a new ATS 4.0 2500 4200 Xtreme Profile Convection found a place a few meters from the Fox that still remain in the family.
Let’s hear from the Bel Pre Glass Family:
“As a family-operated business, we care greatly about our employee’s and our customers. These are our two main concerns. With that in mind, we have continually looked for ways to improve, to meet the needs of our customers & to stay current. We’re happy to have Mappi as a partner, not only a supplier, because we have found that they have the same philosophy & the same respect for the customer. Mappi understood our need and showed us that the most important component of a furnace is not only the steel and the high-end electronics but the deep knowledge of the tempering process as well as the passion & desire to be better. Mappi continues to focus on this goal just as we do.“

When a Glass Company believes in absolute quality; a full in house production is a clear choice. And when two companies with the same in house philosophy meets the outcome is spontaneous a strong partnership and deep cooperation. This is the story of Mappi and Clinton Glass Company.
Both Companies are convinced that if you want to pursue excellence in your job you can’t leave to the others part of your job, this is one of the reasons for the Clinton’s choice to buy a ATS ECO 2200 x 3800.
Mappi has a in-house production for all it’s products, without subcontracting, from design to assistance only Mappi personnel will take care of you.
Clinton Glass, is the only frameless shower company in East Tennessee that has it´s own fabrication facility. They temper and fabricate shower doors in-house the only way to maintain the highest standard possible.
Clinton is a family owned business, has served the greater Knoxville Area since 1957 and is the area’s number 1 supplier of frameless shower door. Their conveniently located West Knoxville showroom offers 17 full-size shower displays. Friendly and knowledgable staff, take advantage of the free in-home estimates, and experience their professional and courteous installation crews.
“We produce high quality glass from 30 years, thanks to Mappi we can do it with significant energy and costs savings. We were very impressed by MHS – Multizone Heating System and the Heating removal chamber, 2 great highlights that make the difference in our everyday work” says Greg Stowell Clinton’s owner.
“We want to thank Mappi not only for this great machinery, but also for the great team, I have purchased a lot of machinery over the years, and its not the quality of the machine although top notch, it is Mappi Support Staff that is the very best in the industry.” Says Mr.Stowell
Let’s discover them:
A furnace for tempering produce heat, but this is nothing if it is not accompanied by the skill to manage in the best way possible: this determines glass functional qualities, consumption and productivity of the system.
Finely controlled heating zones, insure thermal and energy efficiency
– Wire resistance controlled by static relay with pulse “train”
– Every heating element is equipped with an independently managed thermocouple
– Wire heating resistance made with special alloy, that is weldable
– Heating zones ‘movable’ (because they are interchangeable) in case of emergency
– If the resistors in one zone burns out it is still possible to continue production
HEATING REMOVAL CHAMBER
Mappi is the only tempering producer that has this features for a much easier maintenance and better finish product quality.
The fact that there is no more need to remove the roller to have access to the lower heating chamber in case in necessary, it also have a deep impact on the quality.
Roller removal it’s always a risky operation especially in reference of putting again the rollers in the exact micrometric position.
The LTI Group is a leading provider of innovative laminated glass and polymer products to a broad variety of industries, such as architectural, automotive, airline, marine, entertainment, security and industrial – among others – around the world. They are known as a pioneer in the processing and laminating of electrified films, and is renowned for their creativity in providing innovative, customized solutions to meet their specific customer needs.
For more than a decade, the Group has been a leading laminator for security products for detention facilities, the US Government and the Armed Forces. As a vertically integrated organization, the company sees the process through from start to finish, with design, clean room and production facilities designed to deliver reliable, high-quality products, be they for security, architectural, or decorative purposes.
Now they are the 4th generation owner, all of which were different families. From the 90’s they are primarily focused on high quality. They started only doing lamination but they found the surrounding area glass fabricators were constantly out of stock, disorganized, and that it would be much easier and better quality to supply their own tempered glass.
This is why they needed a tempering furnace that works hard and better than every other supplier and especially totally reliable.
They called many companies and found the best 2 samples for them, one of this was Mappi. After reviewing the 2 furnaces, they choose Mappi ATS 4.0 2200×4200.
They were impressed most of all with MHS and the Removable Heating Chamber.
After 1 year, Chris Kapiloff, LTI owner, is extremely satisfied with his choice, the value of the furnace is amazingly noticeable for energy savings and keep the furnace clean and at optimal performance to guarantee highest standard of productivity and quality.
Thanks to its quick start up time they put it into sleep mode very night and any day they are closed. Promises were confirmed and verified: ATS 4.0 is 40% more efficient than its competition in energy savings so very environmentally friendly product.
Mappi Assistance always at your side, 24/7 thanks to TAB service is an other element that made this choice the right one.
“To be top quality, you need glass with no bending and extreme clarity. That’s what a Mappi furnace gives them. The furnace is like a space ship in the glass shop. Everyone stops and admires its beauty. It is so exotic and interesting to look at and every time a customer visits the shop, it is their favorite part of the entire facility.” says Kapiloff.
