Custom Glass Solutions bends glass utilizing three different capabilities – sag bending, press bending and cylindrical bending.
Sag bent glass products are formed when hot glass sags (due to the pull of gravity) in to the shape of a quench ring. Sag bending produces barrel or spherical shaped glass parts.
Press bent glass products utilize a stainless steel mold face and head that presses the glass into the shape of the mold. Cylindrical, conical and spherical shapes are possible utilizing the press bending process. Cylindrically bent parts are made when hot glass moves through Kevlar covered wheels that are driven by flexible shafts that bend or form the glass into a cylinder. Cylindrical glass parts are typically used in door glass applications.
