Presented by Melting and R&D Lead Martyn Marshall, the seminar gave attendees an introduction to the glass making process, taking them from the very beginning of glass production to modern day advancements.
The seminar was the first in a series of three provided for free by the analytical experts to continue sharing their specialist knowledge to workers across the glass supply chain during the coronavirus pandemic.
Gareth Jones, Operations Director at Glass Technology Services, said, “We were delighted with the response to our first webinar as, like many other businesses, we’ve had to adapt with the current circumstances and figure out how to continue with different aspects of the business, including our workshops which are usually hosted at our laboratories in Sheffield.
“Modifying our workshops into webinars wasn’t without its challenges but it’s allowed us to widen our audience and engage with companies and individuals who we otherwise wouldn’t have had chance to in a traditional setting.
“We hope to see this continue not only for the next two online workshops but beyond them as well.”
The next webinar, which focuses on glass for the pharmaceutical industry, will be hosted by Chemistry Manager Amy Meysner and take place on 2 June while the third, an overview of glass failure, will be presented by Technical Manager Daniel Capon on 16 June.
