What’s new with DMG?

What’s happening?
DMG is designing a camera for the inside of our glory hole! The 2nd in the nation behind Corning!

Half of working with molten glass happens in the glory hole.  Due to high heat the audience does not have a way to view the glass while it is in the glory hole.  DMG is designing this extra special video equipment to show students an aspect of glass blowing which is not typically visible. Live footage and recorded video from the glory hole camera will be incorporated into online learning content and used during in-house workshops and field trips when social distancing guidelines are relaxed enough to allow for in person demonstrations to resume. With this kind of technology, the students will be able to witness the glass reheating and glass going from a solid to a liquid form.
