Development of Window Glass Bonding System 1999-01-0983
Generally, ‘direct glazing’ is the bonding method used to install the automobile front and rear window glass.
This bonding method is used for not only the safety of holding the glass in place but also for the marketability of appearance and precision, i.e. its fitting quality.
In order to rationalize this bonding work process, sealant materials were developed with the function of temporarily supporting the glass, molding design specifications were developed with the function of spacer, and high-precision glass adhesion robots were developed (by Honda Engineering Co., Ltd.) in order to further raise the fitting quality.
All this development made it possible to eliminate auxiiary fitting parts and to completely automate the glass bonding work process. As a result, the marketability of the vehicle is improved and the work process simplified to reduce costs.
