| The strength of glass plays an important role in the dimensioning of glass components in the building industry. A major factor determining float glass strength is damage such as scratches or cracks due to the brittle material behavior of glass.
| In this paper, we present the development of an intrinsic parameter σQM characterizing the sensitivity of a coating (or configuration) to the quench marks.
| This paper presents work undergone for a set of four high-rise towers, featuring 11,136 unique cold-bentpanels, hundreds of which are pushed beyond 250mm.
| 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 first episode is devoted to the white haze phenomenon – one of the most asked about issues in the history of #AskGlaston.
| 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.
| In this paper, artificial intelligence (AI) will be applied for the first time in the context of glass processing.
| 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.
| Research has shown that the general approach to determine the bending strength of thermally curved glass with the aid of the four-point bending test for flat glass according to EN 1288-3 is applicable.
| 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.
| The significance of balancing operational and embodied carbon continues to grow.
| 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.
| When people talk about the future of production, they can't do so without using the term "smart factory." But what is it? How does a smart factory work? And what does it have to do with OPC UA?
| 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?
| 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.
