Glass Redrawing

Production can also redraw glass. This process involves introducing a precise perform (tube) in an oven and drawing it out at a smaller scale. Tubes can be accurately drawn up to 3 mm outside diameter from the perform in borosilicate glasses. Glass pulled through the oven is very straight and maintains concentricity.
