Glasstech to Highlight New Windshield System at China Exhibition

Perrysburg, Oh-based Glasstech, Inc., will highlight its new high-efficiency windshield system, the EPB-L™, at the 18th China International Glass Industrial Technical Exhibition, May 16 - 19, in Shanghai, China.

The new EPB-L™ windshield derives its name from the manufacturing technology used to create the it, an External Press Bend Forming and Annealing System for Automotive Glass (EPB-L), which uses a single tooling set to produce up to 225 complex windshields per hour.

The EPB-L is energy efficient, since only glass and one tool are heated. With the gravity sag windshield process, multiple forming tools are heated and cooled for each windshield. The EPB-L's single tool set is price-competitive and requires much less maintenance and storage area.

The most productive EPB-L system can produce as many as 225 windshields per hour and change jobs in less than 90 minutes.

The EPB family of systems also includes the EPB-SS™ External Press Bend System, which accommodates a single stream of glass parts; and the EPB-DS™ External Press Bend System, with a 72-inch (1829mm)-wide bed, which will accommodate either a single- or dual-stream of parts.
