A highlight of glasstec 2018, the International Trade Fair for Glass Production, Processing and Products, will be the two-day expert conference called “Function Meets Glass.” The conference focuses on challenges and solutions for manufacturing and finishing functional glass and the application areas for functional glass. It will bring together machinery manufacturers, producers and end users for a closer connection between theory and practice. glasstec will be held from October 23-26, 2018 at the fairgrounds in Düsseldorf, Germany.

Functional glass opens up new markets but also requires adapted high-precision glass finishing technologies. At “Function Meets Glass,” high-caliber speakers from the science and glass industries will address both topics. Topics will include high-precision laser cutting techniques on complex surfaces and new coatings on glass.

“Function Meets Glass” tickets are available here. The conference tickets include a two-day visitor ticket for glasstec 2018 and participation in the glasstec opening event in the Altes Kesselhaus in Düsseldorf.

In addition, conference participants can also take part in a tour of the Glass Technology Live show, providing insights into current research projects and previously undisclosed and innovative products.
