- A movable diagram divides annealing from cooling
- Rolls diameter 60, center distance 120 ceramic, (for fused silica only i in the heating and bending area + 5%)
- Mixed heating: electricity, gas
- n. 4 burners of 20,000 Kg / cal. with automatic ignition and flame control
- n. 2 self-regulated gas zones
- 0.75 kW combustion fan

Lower drilling template consisting of shaped cordirite plates inserted between the rollers and
resting on a plate that will be raised by means of a pneumatic piston having a maximum stroke of 500 mm
Upper template with wings that close in case of particularly closed curvature.

A lifter keeps 1 glasses lifted from the rollers curved in the annealing zone over time of curvature,
after which the diaphragm is raised and while the newly curved glasses come transferred in annealing,
those from annealing are transferred 1st cooling

The movement of the rollers is controlled by 2 gear motors controlled by inverters.
The 1st pulls the first six modules and has 2 tow speeds:
1st) the normal slow forward speed
2nd) transfer speed to the next section in fast 8 - 10 times higher than the 1st
- 2 meters of kiln feeding roller conveyor with operating drive motor reducer intermittent
- 4 m of kiln unloading roller conveyor pulled by the 2nd kiln towing gearmotor
