Matrix

Bend the most demanding windshields with precision


Looking to produce the best windshields?
Here are three reasons why Glaston Matrix is your best choice

1.

Processes the most complicated shapes

  • OEM single-model and mixed production of windshields and sunroofs
  • Active convection combined with ultimate bending control
  • Optional press bending system for ADAS and HUD features

2.

Supreme quality

  • Convection technology for easiest processing of coated and screen-printed glasses
  • Most uniform heating results with the highest optical quality and yield
  • Made in Finland from engineering to production

3.

Lowest operational cost for the fastest ROI

  • Lowest energy consumption with convection pre-heating
  • Lighter mold design thanks to advanced heating technology and minimized footprint
  • Reduced maintenance costs due to robust design

Maximum performance with high yield and flexibility


When you are looking for superior windshield quality, flexible production as well as reliable and energy-efficient operation, Glaston Matrix is your choice. It’s perfect for both mixed and single model production of car and truck windshields.

Gravity bending allows you to create the most demanding windshield shapes, including deep sags and wrap-around corners, in a cost-effective way. You can use different types of molds at the same time, which makes it the best bending process for replacement windshields.

The press bending process is an OEM’s choice. It is relatively simple with only two phases: heating the glass and using molds to press it into the desired shape. This gives you very high output, good repeatability and tight tolerances.

“The market in Vietnam for cars is very large with lots of room for growth. People are becoming wealthier, and sitting in a car is more comfortable than being on a scooter, which may be prohibited in the next few years,” says Nguyen Phuong Tran, Production Manager, and son of Long Nhien Automotive Glass’s owners, about his home market. “The Glaston Matrix windshield bending furnace is a stepping stone for us to tap into this rapidly expanding business of hundreds of thousands new cars per year.”
