Craftsman Glass to Begin Production of Laminated Glass Next Week

Craftsman Fabricated Glass of Houston will begin production on its new laminated glass line next week. The company plans to provide both custom laminated products and longer standardized automated runs.

"I'm happy to report that the first test glass off the new laminated line - and then through the autoclave last night went flawlessly and the output was excellent quality," says company president Bob Lawrence. "We ran a bunch of 36 by 60; some went through in the equipment's custom mode, then we let it fly in the automated mode at a speed that impressed everyone, even technicians from Bystronic-the line manufacturer. Next we get into more exotic impact glasses; some 102 inches wide, and 195-inch long pieces as well."

Lawrence says the company is excited to begin filling orders.
