Tecglass is ready for the big leap forward

After the great interest received at Glasstec during the presentation of its entire range of machines and accessories for digital printing on glass, Tecglass is ready to face the commercial challenges of 2017 with all the necessary determination. Two key points of the marketing strategy have been developed that reflect the prerogatives of excellence that make Tecglass the world’s most advanced company in the sector.

The first point – and this is how it should be – relates to the intrinsic characteristics of the product. The one major aspect that emerged from all the international meetings of 2016 is the recognised technological supremacy that the Tecglass machines have on the market. The great efforts made in recent years have allowed creating a wide range of different machines able to adapt perfectly to the production needs of individual customers, which vary greatly depending on the size of the individual companies and on the type of processing to be carried out. The three basic models are Vitro-Jet D Type, Vitro-Jet I Type and Vitro Jet F Type, whose properties vary in terms of printing speed, width of the printing surface, management of use and dimensional characteristics, but share a radically innovative technology that is hard to find in today’s panorama. This means that manufacturers who use the Tecglass machines are able to guarantee important operating advantages to customers, such as the high-flow recirculation system that does not deposit the ink, so that there is no need to clean the heads; the simultaneous drying system (SDT) which dries the sheet as it is being printed; the revolutionary printing system with seven different drop levels that allows precision printing, while providing greater power and, therefore, higher speed for covering large surfaces; an incredible and unmatched level of definition that reaches the exceptional value of 1,440 dpi; the frame-pattern tool, which allows directly printing the desired patterns without resorting to external graphic files; an almost infinite range of colours to choose from; a freely usable App with thousands of decorations immediately available. These exclusive advantages are joined by the range of Tecglass ceramic inks specially designed to make the most of the extraordinary performances of the Vitro-Jet machines.

The second point of the 2017 attack strategy is closely linked to Tecglass’s entry in the Fenzi Group, which operates with companies around the world, guaranteeing continuous supplies and assistance through the production facilities and distributions sites in different continents. In only a few years, digital printing has literally changed the face of decorated glass and its enormous potential is still unexplored, both in terms of technical research and business opportunities. The Tecglass digital technology supports transformers all over the world, who can count on a widespread presence, professionalism and soundness that have characterised the Fenzi Group for more than 75 years.


The machinery consists of DESERT production machines for high-efficiency DESERT solar modules built specifically for extreme hot climate, such as can be seen in deserts or in tropical areas. Made solely in Germany and built using the latest in DESERT and TROPIC module production, the systems inlcudes all cutting-edge technology.

Certified DESERT solar modules, DESERT containers, DESERT power plants and DESERT manufacturing machinery built using pioneering DESERT and TROPICS technology are now fully set up, and ready to perform. But powering on the machinery has been a long time coming. Up until recently, this advanced piece of equipment had been waiting for clearance at a port in Brazil. Now that the formalities have been dealt with, both J.v.G. Thoma and its customer in Brazil can get production under way.

J.v.G. Thoma GmbH is a company whose vision has always been to harness the infinite power of the sun and convert it into an inexhaustible supply of energy. But a vision such as this requires global reach, and this project has opened new doors. Brazil is not only a gateway to South American cooperation, but also the launchpad to international reach and expansion.

Following the delivery of this initial order, J.v.G. Thoma GmbH will be looking forward to an ongoing collaboration with the Brazilian company. From setup and initial training to setting the scene for a ramp up, J.v.G. Thoma will be there to provide expertise and assistance. Moreover, the company will be jointly responsible, along with the client, for the successful integration of the DESERT solar module factory.

In the future, bigger DESERT power plants will be set up on Brazilian soil, and together with existing turnkey production systems, they intend to take up a large share of the products and assets this sector will possess locally. J.v.G. Thoma plans to build up a local network of sales agents that can extend a premium offering to neighbouring countries in South America. Eventually, the company hopes to be able to expand its customer base to clients in North America.

Hans Thoma, general manager from the Thoma-group, is eager to acquire a substantial market share in Brazil, a growing country with tremendous potential for solar energy output. Having complied with local official procedures (Inmetro, TÜV, Fraunhofer CSP) and cleared the way for future business collaboration, he expresses his hope that the solar industry will henceforth expand quickly.

”Being able to introduce Brazil to the infinite opportunities of a solar industry is a privilege for J.v.G. Thoma GmbH, and one that we are extremely grateful for. At the same time, this placed the ball squarely in our court, and the pressure to get the ball rolling quickly was high. Now that the lengthy initial formalities are out of the way, we can focus on making this project a success.“

The first DESERT solar module production in BRAZIL! Lets go ....
J.v.G. Thoma GmbH is delivering a DESERT turnkey production line to Brazil, the first of its kind and hopefully the first in many breakthroughs to leave the factory floor on their way to the largest country in South America. With a capacity of 30 MW, this is a small semi-automatic DESERT production line, but still a flagship in terms of DESERT solar module production and electricity generation in the country, now fully functional and ready to start with operation.
