Live webinar on stone analysis essentials to be held by American Glass Research



 American Glass Research (AGR) will be conducting its latest in a series of educational webinars in a  live webinar, “Spotlight on: Stone Analysis Essentials,” on March 9, 2021.

AGR’s “Stones in Glass: Analysis and Identification” in-person seminar has trained glass industry professionals for over 10 years in this specialized skill.  To introduce practical stone analysis to a broader audience, we are offering a shortened version of this seminar that will be useful for glass plant QC employees, batch & furnace workers, and some filling line QC personnel.

This new, 1.5-hour training webinar focuses on visual identification of stones using simple tools available in every QC lab – a hand lens and an optical microscope. Using the material in this course, trainees will be equipped to identify the majority of stones found in commercial glass products and to address their root causes.

The 1.5-hour live presentation will be conducted by Dr. Brandon Aldinger.  The live broadcast will take place at 9:00am EST/14:00 GMT/15:00 CET.  The cost is $285 per person.  The webinar will be recorded so attendees can replay the presentation at their convenience.  A free preview of the webinar and additional information can be found at

AGR has been conducting live in-person training to the glass manufacturing industry and glass container fillers worldwide for over 60 years.  In response to the COVID pandemic and heightened health safety considerations, AGR has constructed a dedicated studio for the production of live webinars and self- paced e-seminar modules.
