Glass products are widely diffuse in the everyday reality. An interesting glass application field, from a technological point of view, is the transportation area. The automotive industry always needs for more complex shape of windscreen in order to satisfy the request of new design. In the paper, a “common” windscreen forming process, for automotive application, is described. The results of a preliminary study, on the forming sheet glass process, are here shown. A first optimization step, in order to reduce the forming time, is also introduced.
