In addition to the aforementioned glass processing services, Jimmy Glass also provides hot bending processing. Compared to flat surface glass products, glass walls and furniture with a curved surface offers an exclusive, innovative look. During the manufacturing process, the glass is heated and bent under high temperatures into the required shape, then cooled. All processing steps are done via computer control, ensuring an ultra-high accuracy.
The entire hot bending process is performed using advanced, reliable equipment and skilled employees, ensuring satisfying and durable results. We offer custom bending glass depending on customer specifications. After bending, all bent glass will be cut and finished according to project needs.
Glass Bending Process
We own and operate a glass bending tempering line equipped with fully-automatic glass bending tempering furnaces, used to produce magnifying mirrors and rearview mirrors in a variety of curvatures from 1.1mm to 1.8mm. Every tempered mirror has its curvature inspected to ensure the final quality.
We utilize a variety of curvature bending tempering molds to meet unique customer needs.
The glass slump mold is made from sand or alumina silica fiber paper and board, with the sand mold the more commonly used method. The sand layer is laid out in a 1.5cm thick layer within the mold, then, according to design requirements, we use a bamboo bar to draw details and create a negative mold. Once this process is complete, we spread molding powder onto the design and place flat glass on the negative mold. Once the glass is heated to beyond the softening point, it sinks into the detailed markings within the sand mold.
Our glass bending technique is most often used for the spherical bending and forming of make-up mirrors, magnifying mirrors, decorative mirrors, rearview mirrors, touchscreens and display screens.
We provide precise temperature control, sophisticated techniques and accurate bending.
