Title: METHOD FOR BENDING A GLASS PANE
Abstract:
The invention relates to a method for bending a glass pane (2) in a furnace (1), said furnace having an inlet (10) and an outlet (11). The method has the following steps: ∙ providing (S100) a glass pane (2) on a mounting (3), said mounting (3) being preheated, ∙ introducing (S200) the mounted glass pane (2) into the inlet (10) of the furnace (1) for a bending process, discharging (S300) the bent mounted glass pane (2') out of the outlet of the furnace (1), ∙ withdrawing (S400) the bent mounted glass pane (2') from the mounting (3), ∙ attaching (S500) a thermal insulation (4) onto the mounting (3), ∙ returning (S600) the mounting (3) and the thermal insulation (4) by means of a transport device (5), and ∙ removing (S700) the thermal insulation (4) prior to a new mounting process, wherein ∙ the aforementioned steps are carried out again in a cyclical manner.
