Glaston Group has received an order for a new generation HTBS line for bending and tempering of big size automotive glasses to Turkish customer Ortakci Glass.

The order was included in Glaston’s Q4/2019 order intake with the line to be delivered in the last quarter of 2020.

Optical quality, functionality and accurate and bigger shapes are said to be essential for vehicle manufactures.

In addition, high-performance, lightweight automotive glazing has a positive impact on fuel economy, passenger safety and driving comfort.

With its flexibility and high end-product quality, the HTBS line enables glass processors to meet these market requirements.

The new generation HTBS line for bending and tempering automotive glasses relies on Glaston’s broad technological expertise in heating and convection technology.

The new line enables processing of even more challenging glass types and has the capability to process glasses up to size 2400mm x 1700mm.

“We have systematically expanded our business by making strategic partnerships and today our glass is present in every area of life: in the automotive, furniture and home appliances segments.

“In automotive glass, our aim is to become the main supplier to the OEM customers by providing customised services to them.

“With the new HTBS line we will be able to take our automotive offering to a new level”, said Bertan Ortakci, President at Ortakci Glass.
