SANAM GLASS


Prelude
Derived from Arabic origins, Sanam means the highest or most intense point in the development or resolution of something. Sanam is commonly used to describe the top of a mountain.


Overview

Sanam Glass Company was established to own and operate the glass coating facility in Ma’an, Jordan. The 25,000 m2 facility is being built on a readily available 60,000 m2 plot of land. The facility was designed to accommodate the maximum production capacity of the coater while optimizing manufacturing logistics including raw material and finished product handling and stocking. In addition, the facility’s design provides for any contemplated expansions. The plant is currently dimensioned to produce 5.5 million m2 of coated glass per year. Situated in the Southern Province of the Kingdom, the city offers superior industrial infrastructure, with expedient access to major highways, close to Aqaba sea port and Amman International airport. In addition, the location is provides easy access to the GCC where suppliers and customers will be located; a fact that significantly improves the logistics of delivering raw materials to, and finished products from, the facility.

SANAM Technology:

Sanam Glass is using a coating technology that is based on the invention of “planar magnetron cathodes” which allowed coatings to be sputtered in vacuum at much higher rates. This combined with the fact that sputtering could be achieved in any desired direction meant coatings could be sputtered downwards on to a moving glass substrate.
