Product design work has become a focus for the Gillinder Glass team and collaborating with clients through their R & D process and assist in designing new products for launch.

The Gillinder Glass Manufacturing facility incorporates an in-house mold and design shop to facilitate new production or refurbishing of molds. Customers benefit from internal capabilities to assist in development of the product design. Special collaboration with our mold makers ensures designing superior quality parts that meet customer specifications can be produced with the most economic value and competitive advantage. Each set of customer molds are propriety property and warehoused in an atmospherically controlled storage area. After each use, molds are inspected and maintained to ensure consistent production of the highest quality glass. Through the R & D process, there are various requirements for product testing and performance metrics. Gillinder’s fully equipped R & D, Technology and Quality Control Lab assist in these efforts in evaluating newly designed products through all development stages. Examples of testing equipment include a Refractometer to measure and identify the refraction index, and Spectroradiometer to measure chromaticity and intensity in shaped glass. Gillinder’s team of engineers will collaborate and offer design change options to enhance performance, quality characteristics, and production efficiencies for optimum development. Custom designed gauges ensure adherence to critical tolerances and consistently produced quality products.

Gillinder Glass continues to lead the industry in the manufacturing of pressed and molded technical glass solutions. Customers recognize the value of a hands-on approach, domestic partnership, and minimal lead times Gillinder offers in this crucial age for accurate and confident sourcing.
