Business Overview

Mobility Group

Equipment, machinery and systems for manufacturing automotive fabricated glass CNC-cutting machines, drilling machines, beveling machines, and automatic handling systems.

This group delivers one-stop technical support services for automotive glass manufacturing equipment, extending from design through parts procurement, installation, commissioning guidance, and post-installation afterservice. With plenty of experience of overseas equipment procurement, design ability with 3D CAD systems, and other skills, it is characterized by its high technical ability to realize the customer's vision. The group can also customize automotive glass equipment to match the customer's requests.

Electronics Group

At Electronics business of AGC Group companies, we provide integrated service such as planning, design, equipment procurement, construction management, and start-up support.

Tooling group

  • Molds, jigs and other tooling for manufacturing automotive glass
This group works on the stages from design to manufacturing of the molds etc. that are essential for automobile glass manufacturing. It has a high level of technical ability to meet every customer need, while reflecting each automaker's concepts in designs. Using a global network built up through importing and exporting consumable parts,etc. We can partner with overseas operators to produce goods and deliver them overseas.

Robot Grinding Machine

Robot Grinding Machine

Robots achieve high-quality chamfering

High-quality grinding
High-rigidity longitudinal grinding machine produces high-quality grinding to maximize the effects of water cooling.
The fabricating water collecting function prevents the scattering of the water. That makes maintenance easier and lengthens equipment lifespans.
Space saving and automation
Use of compact robots for handling saves space and labor.
Offline teaching system
A dedicated data creation system makes it possible to create glass shape data for robot grinding quickly, on a computer, with absolutely no robot teaching.
Adaptable to FA@
Data can be centrally managed over a network, and applied to FA for a factory.
That is ideal for high-variety and small-lot production.

Bent glass washing and drying machine

Curved glass cleaner/dryer

High-pressure water cleaner

High-pressure water cleaning
Bonding surfaces are washed with high-pressure spray.
Purified water is used to stabilize film bond strength.
Drainage and drying
Nozzles are used to adapt to various shapes.
Separating
Sheets are separated automatically from one pair of glass sheets. This saves labor and ensures safety.

Continuous pre-pressing device (high-productivity pre-pressing device)

Continuous backup application device (high-productivity backup application device)
Support for high productivity
All handling can be automated, to save labor.
Maintaining high quality
Rubber bags are used to enable high-quality bonding to difficult shapes.
No job changes required
Whatever the glass size or shape, there is no need for job changes, and diverse shapes can be handled.

Film extender

Film extender

Smooth shade band

High quality
Film is hot rolled uniformly, and then cold hardened uniformly, to enable smooth extension with little distortion or irregularity. The margin of contraction after extension is stable.
Small-lot, high-quality production is possible
Various film types are supported
It can be used for refrigerated film.

Molding technology fields with experience

Hot glass bending molds, jigs for air-cooled glass strengthening
Glass sucker handling
Cast material: SUS304 FCD weight: ~800kg
