Final Program

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. These informations, coming directly from the on-line quality control of the tempered glass, reflect the actual production quality and are an optimal complement, […]

Avoiding failure in major construction projects with thousands of units of glass-based products like windows, curtain-wall, and glass balustrades, may seem impossible given how often failures occur. In its conclusion, this presentation will demonstrate a feasible process by which to avoid these failures, but also what kind of failures they are and how to identify […]

The Surface Compression Stress (SC) data, collected by Stazione Sperimentale del Vetro, were analysed to compare the measurements carried out by Scalp-05, Scattered Light Polariscope, and Laser Gasp, Strainoptics’ GASP® Polarimeter. The first one (Scalp) measures the SC at the tin and air side. It is a compact scattered light polariscope for depthwise stress measurement […]

Tempering process automation has been taking huge steps during the past years and development will only accelerate in the future. What fuels the development is data – and more importantly what is done with the data. The ever-increasing computing power allows us to understand the process and production situations in more detailed level than ever […]
