Glass Decorating, for both interior and exterior, is easily accomplished when partnering with Casso-Solar Technologies.
Spandrel glass or fully coated/decorated sheets of glass are precisely made with a direct/reverse roll coater, large area semi-automatic screen printer and infrared drying/curing system. Ceramic, epoxy, silicone, urethane and enamel inks can be applied to created mosaic patterns, marble effects, stripes, dots, geometric decorations, etch finishes and solid sheet colors. Glass sizes from standard to jumbo sheets.
Ceramic inks are fired into the glass as part of a tempering or annealing operation. Other inks can be applied to annealed, heat strengthened or tempered glass.

Screen Printing, Drying & Cooling for Appliance Control Panels, Stove Tops and Oven Doors
Casso-Solar Technologies Ceramic Ink Drying Systems lead the industry in processing water base, water miscible, terpinol and pine oil based inks, leaded or lead free. Special attention is given to maximize green strength on low resin content inks, allowing for safe handling. Combination systems of infrared and convection enhance drying capability. Cooling systems are designed to bring glass and ink temperatures to or below ambient for overprinting. Dryers are compact, energy efficient with little maintenance over years of service life. Casso-Solar Technologies works closely with the ceramic ink manufacturers and maintains an extensive library on current inks used in the industry.
Product category: Laminated glass technology with foil for architectural glass
Continuous Laminating Lines may consist of an entry washer; temperature controlled lay up room with PVB unwind stands, overhead glass transfer assists and pop-up caster tables; preheat ovens to bring laminate to 110-120°F prior to first de-airing press; oversized roll de-airing press; tacking oven to bring the laminate to 160-180°F; final tacking press and unload conveyor with overhead assist. Full PLC recipe control.
For customers processing coated or low-E products, Casso-Solar Technologies Full Top Convection Systems reclaims the lost production volume over uncoated products.
Casso-Solar Technologies systems are available to run with and without an Autoclave. Production requirements determine which system is best for you.
Recommendations for new and used autoclaves can also be provided.
NEW !! - Conveyorized Non-Autoclave Laminating Line
Product category: Laminated glass technology with foil for automotive glass
Laminating- Flat and Curved Glass
Continuous preheat and tacking ovens to allow for proper de-airing of windshields and to tack the glass for further processing in the autoclave. Glass temperatures exiting the preheat are 100-120°F and exiting the tacking oven at 170-180°F. Medium wavelength heaters penetrate the glass to heat the PVB/glass interface. Designed for either short edge or long edge leading. Pin conveyors as shown in the photo, are used for bent glass laminating. Ovens also available for vacuum ring applications, batch or continuous.
Casso-Solar Technologies LLC has over 50 years combined experience in concept and design of industrial heating systems for the glass industry.
