Types of Quartz used in Industrial Applications

Quartz possesses many useful physical properties that render it a suitable material for creating a range of products that have important industrial applications. Below we provide examples of these quartz products and their use, which include: Quartz Crystal OscillatorsQuartz LabwareQuartz InsulationQuartz Lamps & HeatersOptical Quartz Products Quartz Crystal OscillatorsQuartz crystals have piezoelectric properties, which enables […]

Using Quartz in Photovoltaics

Standard photovoltaic cells require extremely pure polysilicon, which is made from quartz – a mineral comprised of silicon and oxygen (SiO2). Many facets of a photovoltaic cell and its various production processes also use glass made from fused quartz. The stability, transmissivity to light and heat-resistant qualities of quartz have made it indispensable to the […]

New injection moulding technique allows glass to be cast in any shape

Fused silica glass offers numerous benefits as a material, but manufacturers often avoid using it because of the high temperatures required. However, researchers in Germany have now produced high quality glassware at far lower temperatures using injection moulding. Their technique could potentially have significant technical, economic and environmental benefits. Silica glass is one of the […]

What is the Difference Between Fused Silica and Quartz

The key difference between fused silica and quartz is that fused silica contains non-crystalline silica glass whereas quartz contains crystalline silica. Fused silica is also known as fused quartz. It is a glass containing almost pure silica in an amorphous form. Quartz, on the other hand, is a mineral compound containing silicon and oxygen atoms. […]


At this year’s Glasstec Bovone will exhibit at its booth C41 in Hall 16 of the Düsseldorf fairgrounds the BRS fully automated robotic system which integrates, inside a robotized station, two straight-line edging machines ELB Fully Automatic – an ELB 11/45 FA and an ELB 12 HS – a vertical washing machine, three anthropomorphic articulated […]


Bovone Stonedge range is able to carry out any type of edge processing, from the simple Jolly with fixed wheels to make 45 ° profiles, to the more complex machines equipped with variable angle, rear grinding and edge radiusing, ideal for complex and precision machining especially kitchen countertops. From the first cutting of the piece […]

The Bovone Jolly 4.0 straight grinding machines flat edge makes the perfect inclined edge for preparing slabs to be joined.

Bovone’s Jolly 4.0 is the ideal straight grinding machines flat edge for 45° edge processing of ceramic, natural stone (marble, granite, quartz etc.) and engineered stone (dekton, laminam, cosentino etc.). It guarantees an excellent quality of finish by facilitating the gluing and coupling of the slabs and protecting the aesthetic appearance of the edge when […]
