| In this third episode of the #AskGlaston flat tempering series, Taneli Ylinen deals with the commonly asked question of how to handle the issues with mixed production.
| In the second episode of #AskGlaston Flat Tempering Series, we will talk about the new solution to estimate the stress level in glass – online.
| This latest Glastory blog by Miika Äppelqvist is dealing with the areas of the tempering process that can be improved to make operations more efficient.
| Industry demand for impeccable glass quality has increased notably over the last years. Customer expectations run high, forcing glass processors to strive for ever-stricter quality control and ensure minimal rejection rates for finished products.
| The most common quality issues that arise in tempered glass are roller waves, glass distortion, bad anisotropy and white haze. In this post, we want to focus on white haze and ways to control it.
| In 2015, the bold concept of a curvy tower at 252 East 57th Street, New York, was presented to an audience at the Glass Performance Days conference. At that time, building construction was just beginning, and no one was certain such a novel idea could be realized.
| This poetry in architecture, one of the most advanced structures in the Nordic countries, Oodi Library exalts the very elements of glass, wood and steel that work in balance as a free-standing masterpiece.
| After seaming, grinding glass edges is another important work step in glass edge processing. The process is primarily used to remove overbreaks and underbreaks at the edges and to process the glass sheets to size.
| In glass edge processing, cutting the glass sheet is directly followed by the seaming process. Fully unprocessed glass edges exhibit overbreaks and underbreaks, conchoidal fractures, as well as micro-cracks along the broken edge.
| In glass edge processing, the requirements for the finished components can vary greatly depending on the location and purpose.
| In glass tempering, we look for equipment that uses less energy, leading to fewer emissions. But sometimes, the numbers are too good to be true.
| Global environmental concern is motivating efforts to improve energy efficiency in all industrial sectors. And glass tempering is no exception.
| Today, almost all new devices – from home appliances to production equipment – are connected. Rapid development in consumer electronics has been increasingly moving towards industrial use. In the glass industry, this development is still in its early stages.
| To really succeed in glass lamination, it takes much more than just having the best equipment – it’s about understanding the process in and out.
| Glass production is an energy-intensive process by its nature, so even small reductions there can result in considerable savings in energy and costs.
| Full convection, forced convection, focused convection, recirculated convection – the list of terms goes on and on.
| We all know that glass lamination is the process of bonding two or more panes of glass with a flexible interlayer in between. Sounds simple. But is it always so in practice?
| I want you to think about your daily journey to work. Take a minute, visualize it – and then answer me this: How many glass surfaces did you see? Too many to remember?
| Limiting global warming require “rapid and far-reaching” transitions in land, energy, industry, buildings, transport, and cities.
| Bent and tempered glass has long been of great interest to the market. The process of creating high-quality tempered bent glass has evolved over the years.
| Do you still spend precious time doing the meticulous task of manually counting glass cullets for a glass fragmentation test? Or maybe your modern counting tool is not exactly the gold standard? If so, we have some good news for you!
| The latest Glastory blog is dealing with the newest trends coming to the bus glass market - how the cut-outs, digital and screen printing, larger surfaces and thinner glass to reduce weight and fuel consumption is challenging the glass processing.
