At this year’s China Glass exhibition which was held in Shanghai from 11th-14th April 2016 Bystronic glass once again presented intriguing, trend-setting technologies for efficient architectural and automotive glass processing. Thanks to the professional surrounding, highly skilled contacts and interesting conversations the trade fair were successful for Bystronic glass.

At the well attended stand customers took the opportunity to examine a tps’applicator and the new finisher during live demonstrations that were held daily. The finisher is a newly developed machine that can make the patented bevel joint of the Thermo Plastic Spacer TPS® invisible by request. The tps’applicator is part of a B’VARIO TPS 270, which will be delivered to our customer Baoding Shi Dahan Glass Co., Ltd. which is located near Bejing. “The request for TPS® in China is very high at the moment”, Gernot Pirnbaum, Sales Engineer for insulating glass lines in China reports. “The new finisher has been very well received.” Bystronic glass is substantiated with more than 30 years accrued warm edge spacer experience: With Thermo Plastic Spacer TPS® it is possible to achieve a peripherally tight edge seal whilst sustaining and increasing insulating glass energy efficiency – this has repeatedly been proven more than a million times over.

However, it was not just the insulating glass sector which stimulated great demand. Numerous automotive glass preprocessing customers visited Shanghai, too. For many years Bystronic glass has been recognised for expertise in this sector of the industry with the champ’speed machine generation which was developed for the pre-processing of automotive glass. Almost half of all passenger cars are equipped with an automotive lite that was produced on a Bystronic glass unit. The champ’speed 2in1 version is the first machine in the world that can break automotive glass with or without a template on a single machine. At China Glass 2016, Bystronic glass presented a variety of new and improved developments to the champ’speed, via multimedia channels in the Automotive Innovation Center.
