Curved Glass Manufacturing

Every piece of curved glass starts its life as a normal flat sheet of glass and the process involved in turning it from flat glass to curved glass is a fascinating one. Firstly, the shape of the curve needs to be determined either by measuring or making a template. The template is then transferred to flat steel where the shape is then cut out, this is then repeated a number of times. The flat steel is then stood up right and the glass is placed on top. The steel and glass are then put into the oven and heated to a temperature where the glass starts to bend to the shape of the steel below. Once the glass has slumped into the shape below the temperature of the oven is slowly lowered evenly. Once the glass is cool any extra processing can then be carried out as required. Here is great video showing this amazing process.
