The funding and tax credits are meant to stimulate more domestic chip manufacturing, but it could be years before consumers see any effects as they shop for new electronics. This means that windshield replacement companies will have to sharpen up their skills in laser calibration services – have you seen those new vehicles? They have lasers all around them. President Joe Biden’s $280 billion CHIPS Act is the right step in the right direction toward providing leadership and semiconductor independence globally. While SDR Auto Glass is pleased President Joe Biden signed the CHIPS Act, we expect that it will take time for us to see the benefits of incentives that bring chip manufacturing back to the U.S.
Jeep says that windshield dirt and debris is flushed off the blades during first swipes, because 12 wet-squirt holes send fluid to where it belongs. On the older dual-nozzle system, that first wiper pass might have felt wasted, cleaning a front glass covered with dirt. In fact, moving the wet-weather nozzles around would have been a great idea for far more than off-roading and for more cars than just Jeeps. Right now, windshield wipers are available on the 2018-2022 Jeep Wrangler and Gladiator models.
With an OEM windshield, you can be sure that your vehicle’s car glass meets the high safety and quality standards. You will see a stamp with the logo of your vehicle’s brand and unique ID marks and numbers – proving that it is from the original manufacturer – embedded into a recognizable position on your windshield. OEM Glass suppliers spend hundreds of millions of dollars on research and development and use Computer-Assisted Design (CAE / CAD) to ensure the quality of the windshields in their vehicles. OEM windshields undergo rigorous and thorough surface, contour, and optical quality testing before they reach the assembly line.
