  • Publication number: 20040244424
    Abstract: A glass sheet G, which has been heated to the bending temperature by a heating furnace 12, is preliminary bent in the course of being conveyed to a bending position by a roller conveyer for preliminary bending 20. When the glass sheet thus preliminary bent is put on a press ring at the bending position, the glass sheet is pressed against the bending surface 26 of a mold 24 by upward movement of the press ring 22 to be bent so as to have a desired radius of curvature. After that, the press ring 22 is moved toward an air-cooling/tempering apparatus 16. When the press ring 22 is introduced into a certain tempering position S, cooling air is ejected from an upper blowing head 30 and a lower blowing head 32 toward the glass sheet G to air cool and temper the glass sheet G.
