Schott AG, founded in Jena in 1884, is a German developer and manufacturer of high-quality industrial specialty glass products. Its main markets are household appliances, pharmaceutical industries, solar energy, electronics, optics, and automotive. According to the 2013 Annual Report, Schott AG employs 15,400 people in 35 countries. Sole shareholder of SCHOTT AG is the foundation Carl-Zeiss-Stiftung, Germany.Schott AG manufactures the optical glass components of, for example, Zeiss and Schneider Kreuznach lenses. They also publish the Schott Glass Catalog, a standard reference for the properties of the many optical glasses produced by them and other companies. In 2012, Schott introduced Xensation, a range of break- and scratch-resistant aluminosilicate cover glasses for touch-sensitive electronic devices such as smartphones and tablet computers, said to have 20% higher bending strength than "competitor glass types" .According to the 2014/15 Annual Report sales were 1.87 billion EUR and EBIT amounted to 135 million EUR. Schott AG employs 15,400 people in 35 countries. Wikipedia.

A method is provided for producing a raised feature on a glass ceramic element, in which a glass or glass ceramic element is irradiated with electromagnetic radiation in a local region of the surface, the radiation passes through the element and is at least partially absorbed thereby so that the element heats up in the region of the irradiated electromagnetic radiation and is heated beyond a glass transition temperature. The irradiation is terminated after heating so that the heated region cools down to the temperature of material surrounding the local region. The heating causes a change in volume of the element, which brings about a local elevation in the surface that remains after the local region cools so that a surface deformation in the form of an elevation remains after cooling.


A method for producing thing glass strips is provided that avoids camber defects. The method includes using a glass strip forming device that has a drawing device; drawing, using the drawing device, the thin glass strip away from the glass strip forming device; measuring, using a measuring device, variables that are dependent on a differing length of edges of the thin glass strip at at least two measurement locations spaced apart transversely to a longitudinal extension of the thin glass strip; determining a difference or a quotient of the variables. The difference or the quotient is used to determine a control variable by which the glass strip forming device is controlled so as to counteract a difference in velocities of the thin glass strip between the two opposite edges.

A glass molding tool is provided that includes a forming mandrel, a method for forming glass, and to an apparatus for hot forming of glass. The glass products obtained in this way may be used as pharmaceutical packaging. The forming mandrel reshapes at least a portion of a heated region of a glass precursor. The mandrel includes a heat-resistant core material and a diffusion layer that is in contact with the glass precursor during reshaping.


An assembly is provided that includes a mineral-based monolithic support for full-surface supporting of a workpiece during processing and transportation and a workpiece supported thereon, wherein the surface of the support is designed so that adherence of the supported workpiece is prevented, and wherein the support has provisions with means inserted therein, which permit to lift the workpiece from the support from below and/or to shift the workpiece laterally, and furthermore relates to a mineral-based monolithic support suitable for this purpose.
