Highlights from glasstec 2018, in Photos and Video

The global glass industry gathered in Düsseldorf, Germany, last week for the 25th glasstec, the International Trade Fair for Glass Production, Processing and Products. The event stretched over nine large halls at the Messe Düsseldorf fair grounds, hosting 1,280 exhibitors and 42,000 visitors.

Glass Magazine was on site for the four-day trade fair, which highlighted the leading trends and innovations in glass. Automation took center stage, with machinery and equipment suppliers demonstrating the next level of technologies for glass companies, including robots and a growing range of virtual reality and augmented reality possibilities. In terms of glass product solutions, companies showed the multi-functional possibilities of glass and systems. Suppliers continue to push the envelope with products that offer performance, aesthetics, flexibility and more.
