Glass is an inert material that can easily be formed by heat. It is ideal for many experimental set-up in Chemistry, Physics, Biology and other disciplines. We are experts in translating your needs into a glass apparatus. After we designed together the new apparatus, we process the glass on the lathe or by hand on the burner in the desired shape. We use diamond tools for cutting, grinding, polishing, drilling, and milling work on glass, quartz glass, and ceramics. One of our specialties are to connect vacuum-tight metals with glass or to seal valuable samples into small glass containments.
In many cases, we can repair broken glass ware or devices. You do not have to buy an expensive replacement. We can also manufacture expensive glass parts like cuvettes for analytical equipment.
If you want to learn more about the countless applications of glass, attend one of our hands-on glassblowing courses. You will prepare some small glass art objects.
