| This work discusses the results from first feasibility investigations dealing with the choice of adhesive and identifying a suitable activation procedure for Fe-SMA strips adhesively bonded to glass elements.
| Overview, Case Studies and Future Potentials
| 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.
| The two case studies illustrate how the engineering of glass can fluctuate with design intent in unusual scenarios – when we cannot rely solely on conventional codes and standards to guide the analysis.
| High strength load-bearing connections between glass components are challenging because they are required to transmit high forces in a material that is sensitive to stress concentrations.
| Serrated building envelopes are a very eye-catching element of contemporary architecture. This type of façade in plan resembles the edges of a serrated blade, hence the name.
| Computer scientists develop a design tool that opens up the use of a cost-efficient technology for curved glass panels. The tool is based on a deep neural network and allows for the free-form design of beautiful glass façades.
| The new LiSEC glass edge deletion machines are equipped with improved sensor technology. This measures with greater precision and therefore guarantees constantly high finishing quality of the glass edges.
| A comprehensive numerical investigation was carried out to understand the mechanical behavior of cold-bent insulating glass units during the bending process. The aim is to derive a basic understanding of the mechanical behavior of an IGU during the cold bending process.
| Safety standards are constantly rising in all possible areas in which glass is used or installed – which is the reason why lamination is also becoming increasingly important in the glass industry.
| Are you considering adding insulating glass products to your production mix? Or are you thinking of reconfiguring your current equipment to deliver new and better services to your customers?
| During times when the number of suppliers in all industries is steadily increasing and the market is becoming more and more transparent at the same time, the importance of cost-effective production for higher profit margins increases tremendously.
| It is well known that laminated safety glass (LSG) is a material that is specifically processed because of its composition.
| Thin glass – as thin as a razor blade or a human hair – is a reliable method to protect smartphone touchscreens, sensitive filters and sensors.
| The façade as a synthesis of building elements, nowadays is the most important building part in terms of performance and architectural design. It is not only the aesthetics that make the façade so significant.
| sedak GmbH & Co.KG, Germany, operates the largest insulating glass line in the world – about extraordinary glass processing and the role of LiSEC.
| LiSEC is the pioneer in terms of the development and production of production lines for large-scale insulating glasses – incl. interview with Hannes Spiss, facade engineer at Arup, Büro für Bautechnik (office for construction technology)
| glassonweb.com contacted the major players in the flat glass industry, asking for their statements regarding the Brexit vote results and how they see it affecting the near future of the European glass and construction markets.
| Skaala was founded in 1956 as a one-man company. The father of the two current owners, Hannu and Markku Hautanen, was a carpenter and already in those days, he processed glass while repairing doors and windows.
| Cost cutting, it is often said, is difficult in glass production and processing as this sector is characterised by manual processes.
| In August 2013, the LiSEC development team started a major project with the mission: redesign of the tempering furnaces in order to save manufacturing costs and at the same time increase the process reliability. Result: the AEROFLAT.
| Internorm is the market leader in Austria as a manufacturer of high-quality window systems and doors and the leading window brand in Europe.
| Since September 2015, the HTL (Polytechnic Glass) Kramsach in Tyrol is using a LiSEC cutting table „base CUT“ for the education of the students.
