  • Patent number: 10556756
    Abstract: A device for conveying and holding a sheet of glass includes a conveyor and a holder configured to hold a sheet of glass in position, in particular in a horizontal position. The holder includes at least two spaced-apart and parallel lateral conveying systems, and a multitude of spaced-apart wires extending transversely with respect to the lateral conveying systems and borne thereby, the sheet of glass being intended, via at least all or part of its lateral sides, to be pressed locally against the wires, and a delivery system configured to deliver pressurized water and/or air jets, the pressurized jets being intended to be sprayed toward the upper face of the sheet of glass—the opposite face to the one supported by the wires, so as to keep the sheet of glass pressed firmly against the wires.
