Why You Should Join Automotive Glass Engineers On LinkedIn

I created Automotive Glass Engineers on LinkedIn to provide a community forum as well as a talent base for potential clients, suppliers and talent acquisition firms. As you know glass is very specific [commodity] and glass for transportation, which by the way is in the top two vehicle warranty failure modes is highly specialized with a very narrow bandwidth of talent.

You will find some of the most capable technical specialists in the transportation field. Automotive Glass Engineers specializes in product, process and bonding adhesives.

We have a best selling, award winning author that can provide you with a step by step “Design Solutions” book covering subjects like DFMEAs, PFMEAs and design tables showing the costs and ramifications of your decision making process.

I have created an open access approach. Feel free to post anything relevant as a member, remember your post reflects on you. Quality content is the goal.

SAE International’s Book on Automotive Glass Engineering Wins APEX Award of Excellence

WARRENDALE, Pa., June 4, 2015 –

SAE International’s book, “Glass Engineering: Design Solutions for Automotive Applications,” is honored with a 2015 APEX Award of Excellence for Publication Excellence.

The APEX Awards are an annual competition for publishers, editors, writers and designers who create print, web, electronic and social media. The awards are based on excellence in editorial content, graphic design, and the success of the entry – in the opinion of the judges – in achieving overall communications effectiveness and excellence. The 2015 competition included 1,851 entries (120 in the Print Media category).The APEX judges saw only the most promising publications that professional communicators could enter.

Written by Lyn R. Zbinden, a mechanical engineer and glass specialist, “Glass Engineering: Design Solutions for Automotive Applications,” narrows the gap between the reader and a technical subject by using language that is easy to understand, a good variety of examples, and a series of invaluable reference design tables. The book also addresses the theme of glass from the manufacturing stage to the design, installation, and warranty aspects. It also flags, along the way, the pitfalls and the important questions to ask. More importantly, it provides the reader with practical ways to solve the not-so-obvious problems associated with the use of automotive glass.
