High efficiency in thin glass manufacturing – from glass cutting to edge processing
The talk will discuss specific equipment aspects that need to be considered for the R2R handling of flexible glass, both in general and by taking the example of a roll-to-roll lab coating system, which has been designed specifically for handling flexible glass.
Furthermore, it will be shown how different processes such as R2R sputtering can be used for potential flexible glass applications in flexible electronics, architecture, and energy conversion devices.
Dr. Robert Prange is Managing Director of Bystronic Maschinen AG – one of the world’s leading suppliers of machinery for architectural, display and automotive glass processing. After his studies and Ph.D. at RWTH Aachen in 1999 he worked in different industries before joining Bystronic glass in 2011. Since then he has extended the companies’ product portfolio into new markets for machining of display and functional glass and built up Bystronic glass' expertise in thin glass processing.
