It burns at vosla. Gas flames shoot horizontally at glassy pistons, which will shortly afterwards carry an ice layer. Wherever the extremes collide, where fire and ice prevail, there is glass in play. And for an eternity.
Everywhere this precision. As with the helix production, as in the construction of the lamp frame with the narrowest tolerances. Every lamp has over 20 heats of fires in the form of highly accurate measurements before it is put into circulation – in the supreme discipline – of automotive lighting.
The glass is no different. It’s much more alive than metal, it’s not that easy to tame. For example, quartz glass is so tough that it can withstand even extreme temperature fluctuations without further treatment in the processing chain itself.
For tempered glass that looks different. This is where a complicated, sensitive process comes into play, where a lot of know-how and experience is required – hard glass technology – the core competence of vosla.
