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.
