Title: SUCTION SUPPORT FOR GLASS
Abstract:
The invention relates to a frame for supporting a sheet of glass, referred to as a suction frame, comprising a contact path for receiving the periphery of the underside face of the sheet of glass, and comprising a suction system able to apply suction to the underside face of the sheet in order to enhance the retention of the sheet by said frame. This frame may form part of a device for the hot-bending of the sheet and convey the sheet with high acceleration or deceleration through a heating enclosure for the purposes of the hot-bending of the sheet.
