glasstec 2018 to Spotlight Functional Glass Applications and Finishing Technologies
Function Meets Glass will reportedly bring together machinery manufacturers, producers, and end users for a closer connection between theory and practice.
A highlight of glasstec 2018, International Trade Fair for Glass Production, Processing and Products, will be the two-day Function Meets Glass conference on challenges and solutions for manufacturing and finishing functional glass, as well as application areas for functional glass. The conference will reportedly bring together machinery manufacturers, producers, and end users for a closer connection between theory and practice. glasstec will be held October 23-26 at the fairgrounds in Düsseldorf, Germany.
Functional glass opens up new markets but also requires adapted high-precision glass finishing technologies. At “Function Meets Glass,” speakers from science and industry will address both topics. For example, Wilma Dewald, Ph.D., of Volkswagen will talk about functional glass in the automotive sector. Other topics will include high-precision laser cutting techniques on complex surfaces and new coatings on glass.
