To be precise
Corning’s leadership in precision forming is the key to making some of the hottest innovations work
Today’s fastest-growing technologies – and all the components that make them function -- demand absolute precision.
Smart-car windshields, optical fiber connections, or next-generation medicine vials, for example, require mass-produced components of exactly the same size and shape -- often without variance of even a single micron.
Manufacturing to highly precise specifications -- engineers call them “tight tolerances” -- has been one of Corning’s strengths for generations. And as high-technology products have transformed the way we live, the company has helped fuel the change by continually improving its precision-forming capabilities.
Today, precision forming is a key part of Corning’s manufacturing platform portfolio. When interconnected with core technologies like glass science, ceramic science, or optical physics, precision forming results in some powerful, industry-shaping innovations.
