GPD 2007 to Emphasize Production Control
The tenth Glass Processing Days (GPD) is set to take place June 15-18, 2007, in Tampere, Finland. Event organizers have further developed the program’s agenda to offer a variety of case study presentations. For example, representatives of Bevelite of Australia will share their experiences on improving process control in the production of advanced glass products.

“This is a method developed with the aim of maximizing control, quality and operational reliability. We are especially challenged by the opportunity to present our system at the GPD Conference, a forum like no other,” said Lee Thurbon, manager of Bevelite Glass in Sydney, Australia. “The knowledgeable participants provide us with feedback and at the same time we can live up to the ambition of the conference to develop business through joint efforts and communication.”
