Glass International Issue
Welcome to the February 2020 issue.
Along with all the latest industry news and views, we speak to Vice President of Global Engineering at US tableware manufacturer Libbey Chandra Mangalagiri, about how the ‘Industry needs more collaboration’.
Emma Bowers and Richard van Breda discuss why glass can become the number one material in the greener environment of the future.
Refractories are a constant theme throughout the issue and we have technical articles from Revimac, AGC Ceramics, Refel and Carlo Ratto.
We profile the SGT awards, look at glass decoration with an article from Koenig&Bauer Kammann and Neil Simpson from Ametek Land investigates how in-furnace thermal surveys can increase efficiency. We also review the recent MOOC course.
All this plus Professor John Parker’s regular history column on quantitative measurement of stresses in glass.
