Glass Blowing – larger profiles

  Last time I found some of the larger quartz  glass tubes we handle getting cut down for further processing. Here is the same tube during production through one of the larger lathes that we have in the production area. The Glass Blower is getting the tube end ready for creating a flattened base as…

Science, Manufacturing and Quartz

There are many aspects to the use of quartz in today’s modern manufacturing industries. Semiconductor manufacturing which moved from the laboratory to mass manufacture during the 1960’s in the USA, is now a vast global industry. Semi-conductors are found in almost every electrical device. Quartz components are an integral part of the manufacturing process for…

Quartz Glass Cutting

During the manufacture of Quartz Glass components, it’s often necessary to cut down the length of stock materials in preparation for additional processing. The most common method for quartz repairs cutting a rod or tube is to ‘snap cut’. This is a manual process, usually employed when the quantities required are small. SNAP CUTTING Snap…
