DFI launches in-line, bilateral CVD protective coating machine– the FuseRocket™

Already being esteemed as a game-changing machine in the hydrophobic coating industry, DFI’s new FuseRocket is the workhorse of protective coating machines. Capable of treating one linear foot per second on both sides of the glass, the horizontal coating machine seamlessly fits into any existing tempering line and streamlines the Diamon-Fusion application process via a chemical vapor deposition method.

The FuseRocket also has built-in sensors that immediately adjust for various glass sizes (IG units, shower doors, mirrors, etc.), and trigger the sprayers when glass rolls through. These shifts in coating capabilities finally allow fabricators everywhere to treat all their glass in an affordable, timely manner. So, no more double handling or wasted labor, just an uninterrupted production flow of easy-to-clean glass protection.

If you are curious to learn more about the FuseRocket or IGE Glass Solutions, please check out or, respectively.
