  • Patent number: 10036194
    Abstract: The objective is to propose a production method of multiple panes which can be simple and nevertheless produce a multiple pane in its finished state which does not include any undesired protrusion from an external surface of a glass panel. The production method includes: hermetically bonding, with a sealing member, peripheries of paired glass panels disposed facing each other at a predetermined distance to form a space to be hermetically enclosed between the glass panels; evacuating air from the space through an outlet to make the space be in a reduced pressure state; subsequently dividing the space by a region forming member disposed inside the space to form a partial region which do not include the outlet; and subsequently cutting out the partial regions by cutting the pair of glass panels.

  • Publication number: 20180044235
    Abstract: A first glass substrate, a die including a penetrating space, a seat member, and a punching member are set so as to be arranged in this order. Subsequently, the seat member is punched by the punching member to remove part from the seat member through the penetrating space of the die. The part removed, is placed on the first glass substrate by the punching member so as to allow the part to serve as at least one spacer. Thereafter, the second glass substrate is placed on the first glass substrate with the at least one spacer in-between to form a glass panel unit.
