What does GLAPE do?

We develop solutions for the representation of complex forms made of flat glass products. With Fraunhofer IWM’s technology, unmatched small bending radii can be realized within tight tolerances, and flat partial surfaces retain the very good surface quality of the flat glass product, allowing for contours made of glass to be created with very high precision.

What services does GLAPE provide?
  • Consulting and professional project management services
  • Partnerships and networks in industry and research
  • Quality assurance and related services
What are the GLAPE technology application examples?
  • Products for architecture (full glass corners with small radii, free aesthetic shapes etc.)
  • Automotive (exterior glass, i.e. roofs with distinctive lines, interior products, i.e. curved displays, human-machine interfaces etc.)
  • Tailored glass (customised prototypes, small radii, locally sagging designs etc.)
What are the key features and measurement capabilities of GLAPE facilities?
  • Bending oven with transfer system, local heating systems and flexible mould
  • Contact-free temperature measurement using a pyrometer and thermal camera
  • 3D-scanner
  • Glass cutting and edge processing


We combine high precision, optical quality and tight bending radii in one product innovation.

GLAPE is funded by the German Federal Ministry of Economic Affairs and Climate Action and the European Social Fund as part of the EXIST program.
