Glass International Issue
October 2010

October 2010

In Glass International's October 2010 issue, the prominent theme is glass processing. A feature dedicated to this topic includes articles by numerous specialists in processing equipment and machinery; many of which have recently introduced new technologies designed to improve different aspects of the process, such as cutting, grinding and washing. This broad subject is also the focus of glass industry consultant and regular GI contributor John Henderson's 'Technical topics' column.

Meanwhile, in view of the 34th ASEAN Glass Conference that takes place in the Philippines this month, a report focusing on South East Asia's container glass industry is a highlight of this issue. A brief preview is also provided for November's ATIV International Conference in Parma, Italy.

A feature on cold end handling and packing is also included, with contributions covering both container and flat glass operations.
