| Following a short overview outlining key design objectives, the fabrication process of an opaque composite glass panel is described in detail.
| In the last years contentions about anisotropies among customers and manufacturers occurred when using glass products, such as heat-strengthened (HS) or fully tempered glass (FT).
| Glass distortions may cause objects to appear irregular and out of focus when observed through a distorted glass panel.
| A couple of years ago all started with the first measurement of anisotropies and edge stress as well as the detection of White Haze and other glass imperfections right after the furnace.
| Arup are consulting engineers for a series of recent projects involving curved glass: The High Roller observation wheel in Las Vegas and a revolving feature lift for the new Louis Vuitton townhouse in London.
| This blog post was written based on an interview with M.Sc. (Chem.) Santtu Jolkkonen, Sparklike's Service and Maintenance Manager, who has been working as technical support specialist for Sparklike over a decade.
| Glass industry standards in different countries require 24/7 quality control with the same specifications and fully automated analyses and following statistics.
| Process control is a key factor for speed and efficiency of IS machines. To run a machine at high performance levels it is essential to achieve and maintain stable production conditions.
| The current manufacturing of tempered glass is a complex as well as time- and cost-intensive process. Not only long processing times, but also high energy costs have a significant impact.
