| Connecting glass with heat bonds is a way to create all-transparent glass structures. Two methods have been researched in theory and practice, glass welding, through local heating, and glass fusion through global heating.
| Latest Glastory blog by Jukka Immonen is dealing with the 5 promises of convection technology in windshield bending.
| In today’s architecture the bending of glass plays an important role in achieving free forms in modern façades.
| The development of structural details in glass connections is the main topic of this research.
| Few materials in human history have been made for as long or used in as many ways as glass. Ancient peoples molded it and poured it; later cultures discovered how to spin and blow glass into unique, dazzling shapes.
| Some practical tips on how you can well maintain your laminating line and extend its longevity.
| Glaston is working hard to make tempering furnaces more automated.
| 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.
| Digitalisation is not only something for start-ups or major enterprises. It applies just as naturally to many skilled trade businesses.
| It is a very known behavior that the glass fragmentation depends on where you break the glass.
| This paper proposes system concepts and fabrication methods for the use of ultra-thin glass in facades.
| The laserbird is a universal tool, making it the perfect choice for a broad portfolio of customers, applications and glass products.
| Digital Design and Fabrication
| The author compares different existing and new application systems for interleaving material for bending windshields.
| Contemporary architectural transparency (understood as the optical property of the material) is constantly being redefined and, over the last decade, new design trends have developed related to transparent façades in architecture.
| New Technical Document (TD) reviews glass surface decontamination—and what makes glass ideal for physical separation and other applications.
| As digitalization becomes a strategic discipline in almost all enterprises and industries, the glass processing business is no exception.
| 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.
