Nelson Glass Tools, a machine and tool manufacturer located in Northern California, has released its newest accessory for the Glass Bot Automated Glass Removal System. The Glass Bot Apex Corner Tool assists in the automation of glass removal by guiding the cutting element tightly along the most efficient cutting angle, which the company says provides a cleaner cut with less strain on the machine.
The tool is a powered winding system that winds a cutting element (wire or string) under high tension to cut through adhesives. The cutting element is pulled inwards, away from the paint surface thus preventing paint, molding or glass damage during the removal process. The machine is operated remotely from the exterior of the car to allow full viewing of the cutting process.
