Peculiar compositions of glass properties and dedicated forming processes are the key characteristics of speciality glass. Famor perform ongoing research in the field of glass forming processes, constantly improving existing methods and increasing the technical benefits.
The product spectrum is enormous: lenses, laboratory ware, electrical insulators and washing machine bull’s eyes are just a few examples of products with different glass composition for different applications.
- Customized forming equipment
- Direct or two-step forming
- Platinum feeders for homogenized glass feeding
- Linear presses and round table presses
- Two-step blowing and rotary blowing machines
A very popular application today is the smartphone touch pad. A wafer thin slice of perfect glass shaped for electrical use. The glass composition Borosilicate is frequently used.
Quality requirements are stringent. Visual properties and technical specifications, for example neutral chemical reaction, are fundamental to many products.
