bending glass

Expert precision glass bending for custom designs

We combine traditional glassblowing techniques with modern expertise to create exceptional bent glass pieces. Explore our solutions and let’s turn your vision into reality!

SUPPORTED BY

New dimensions in glass forming

We combine three distinct features in one product innovation: tight bending radii, high precision and 100% optical quality.

10

Bending Radius

With radii under 10 mm, the technology opens up new scopes for glass

1

Precision

The laser process enables very precise shaping of glass materials, all while keeping tight tolerances of the workpiece

100

Optical Quality

While the glass can be shaped in just any form, the material is not changed and maintains the high optical quality of glass
