Nelson Marketing, Garden Valley, Calif., developed the Glass Bot, an automated deglazing tool. It consists of a vacuum pad mounted wire-winding device that operates by remote control grip, and universally powered by a 12-volt direct current source. The deglazing process involves placing a cutting wire around the exterior of the glass part, attaching one end to the winding shaft of the Glass Bot on the interior surface, and pulling the wire through the adhesive to release the glass part. The process pulls the wire inward, away from the painted surface without damaging the glass part and paint system. The patent-pending Glass Bot is available internationally through authorized distributors.
