Scientific glassblowing: art, craft or engineering?

Many consider the skill of the scientific glassblower to be an art form or craft and it’s true that it requires many years of dedication and practice to become proficient. However, we prefer to think of it as an engineering discipline. Drawings, tolerances, precision tools and jigs all closely resemble the environment of a precision engineering workshop, as does the inspection process, SOPs and change controls.

If you need a precision glass instrument then you need to work with a manufacturer that thinks like an engineer, not one who wants to be an artist.

Working with Cambridge Glassblowing for your custom glass project

Scientific glassblowing has been key to scientific research for hundreds of years. In the same way science has moved on, scientific laboratory glassware manufacturing has advanced similarly.

We continue to advance our skills, capabilities and services to meet the ever changing needs of the scientific community.
