CRB-S™ Cylindrical Radius Bender System for Solar Parabolic Shapes

The Glasstech CRB-S is a highly productive, very accurate and economical system capable of producing the shape conformity and quality demanded by the solar power industry. This tempering/heat strengthening/low-stress glass system produces large (low-iron) glass for parabolic solar reflectors. The innovative, new CRB-S can produce bends up to 1900mm x 1700mm (74.8" x 67") and is precise enough to produce glass suitable for laminating.

NEW CRB-S™ Glass Shaping & Processing System Advantages

  • Innovation in parabolic trough glass production
  • Based on 15+ years of proven core technology
  • Glass strengthening and flexibility
    • Tempered – 4–5 times stronger than annealed glass
    • Heat strengthened – 2 times stronger than annealed glass
    • Low stress – Similar to annealed glass
  • Bending thickness from 1.6mm–5mm (0.63"–3/16") or thicker
  • No tooling required
  • Fully automated and computer-controlled
  • Highly accurate part shapes meet industry requirements
  • Significant energy savings over conventional methods

Precision, Repeatability, Energy Efficiency and High Volume = Lower Part Cost
