Hot processing of quartz glass and technical glass

We offer the following technologies for hot processing:

  • Machine forming
  • Manual forming, welding, for example, with a hydrogen/ oxygen flame

The starting material consists of tubes of various lengths as well as of a variety of semi-finished products such as grindings, stopcocks, valves, plates and rods. The core element used in processing is the quartz burner, which achieves temperatures of up to 2,500 °C using a mixture of propane/hydrogen and oxygen.

Larger components such as process tubes for horizontal and vertical facilities are worked on a lathe.

Only through the interplay of heat and craftsmanship can the quartz equipment manufacturer create a wide variety of outstanding quartz glass products in accordance with the customers’ specifications.
