Glaston secures order to big Chinese display glass supplier
Glaston Corporation Trade Press Release 9 July 2020
In our highly connected and modern society, we use in our daily life an increasing amount of applications covered with glass. We are surrounded by touch screens in different sizes: from mobile phones and tablets to big glass screens and interactive surfaces. Chinese display glass supplier Heyuan Orient Technology Co., Ltd, specializing in big size cover glass, was looking for a processing line with better quality and a higher degree of automation for their new factory.
Heyuan Orient Technology’s main product is big size cover glass for displays used in meeting rooms and classrooms. The company is one of the biggest suppliers in China with key market leaders amongst their customers. Due to growing demand Heyuan Orient Technology is expanding their production and wanted a solution for better quality, good machinery performance and increased automation.
“Instead of an old CNC machine, the customer wanted to invest in better technology and well-known brands. Glaston’s B’BRIGHT is the perfect choice when looking for flexibility in product sizes, fast processing times and highest edge quality. In addition, the customer really appreciates that we can support them at all times thanks to our professional service team in China”, says Robert Prange, SVP, Glaston Automotive and Emerging Technologies.
The B’BRIGHT is a line for highly efficient processing of large display glasses. Its high precision cutting and breaking system enables a minimal grinding allowance and thus a fast grinding process. The vibration-absorbing structure of the grinding machine leads to a perfect edge quality. The line is scheduled for delivery in December 2020.
“We are excited to further strengthen our relationship with Glaston. The professional knowledge of the teams in China and Switzerland as well as the technology and good machine performance were key factors when making our decision“, says Mr.Qiu Zhilin, Chairman at Heyuan Orient Technology Co., Ltd.
