Equipment and tooling for the automotive sector must be of superior quality, reliable, and robust. We know what the automotive sector requires, and we have delivered it for years. Glassline has now been producing automotive glass processing equipment for 50 years! Starting from early rotary Backlite seamers and Windshield ‘lazy-arm’ seamers, then cam grinders to one of the very first CNC grinding machines(1987), this history led to the current pre-processing lines as well as other product lines. We produce machines for nearly all of the vehicle glass, including the mirrors. We produce high quality machines for nearly every need for automotive glass processing, including cutting, grinding, drilling, printing, and much more. Our Diamond Tooling division manufactures tooling for drilling and grinding. We are the most all-around capable flat glass equipment and tooling manufacturer in the USA.
Our compassion for our Customers has enabled us to be in business since 1970. We strive to provide exceptional value, by being innovative and flexible partners to our Customers, and providing durable, quality equipment and tooling at reasonable pricing.
We are a vertically integrated Engineering and Manufacturing company. Our Engineering team creates 3D designs for our manufacturing team. Our ERP system tracks all of the job parts via barcoding and data entry, so reporting to our demanding automotive Customers can be fairly straightforward. We fabricate and machine nearly all parts in house, and large assembly areas provide the ability to pretest systems prior to shipping for faster startups. Our InteliCon division builds the control panels which we typically mount on the machines to minimize field wiring. Controls Engineering and programming are typically done in house, but we can partner with others as required. We assist with installation and start up.
Many of the below noted machines can be provided as a complete processing line and directly feed the bending and tempering furnace.
High speed, accurate, durable inline printing machines are typically required for the automotive industry. Aisa technology and Glassline machine design/build capabilities have been combined to provide excellent printing and drying systems.
We produce extremely accurate and fast CNC Cutting machines for the Automotive market. The design allows for extremely fast accel/decel and very tight tolerances, as demanded by the automotive industry. Using Linear Motors and a patented direct drive servo cutting head, the machines are very low maintenance and made to run 24/7. Various machines are designed for sizes ranging from sideview mirrors, quarterlites, sidelites, backlites, windshields and larger. We have custom designed CNC cutters to be retrofitted into existing lines for increased uptime and decreased cycle times.
We have extensive experience(>30 years) in De-airing/Nipper roller systems. We were also the original developer of the CNC PVB shape cutting machine, for the elimination of die cutting in windshield pvb processing.
We produce many sizes and styles of CNC shape grinders for the entire set of automotive glass sizes.
Our capabilities for material handling solutions are endless, due to our years of experience building complete line solutions. To name a few: Loading/Unloading, Precision Squaring(flat or bent glass), Accumulation systems, Flippers, Rotators, Conveyors of all types; you name it we can make it. We have built many large-scale lines for automotive glass usch as windshields for conveying, accumulating, etc. and automatic precision loading to the furnace.
A specialized machine has been developed for ‘hole-in-glass products.
Centrifugal separation has been a mainstay in the automotive industry. We build it here as well, and integrate it with your grinding systems.
Various styles of automated drilling machines/systems have been made specifically to be put inline with our CNC Cutting and Grinding lines. We can design a solution for your needs.
