Summary

A large effort is being made by glass technologists to increase glass production efficiency. Costs must be minimized while at the same time continuously increasing quality requirements and specifications have to be met. Reducing the glass defect level will increase the product efficiency considerably. TNO is involved in several improvement projects that aim at reducing rejects. In this paper the typical approach is shown by means of an example concerning a panel furnace of a large TV glass manufacturer.
