Research & Development




Kaveh glass Industry group is a leading company in glass and glassware manufacturing in Iran and to keep its position in the high competitive market necessitate applied R&D concentrated in the following areas:


  • Plant Development
  • New Product Development
  • Process design and realization
  • New Machinery Design and Modeling
  • Troubleshooting
  • New Technologies Developments
  • Research on various glass compositions
  • Analyses
  • Automation
  • Energy conservation
  • Information and communication technologies
  • New Software Development

Kaveh Glass R&D department is continuously working on a big variety of activities to increase the range of products and improve the quality and find better ways for producing products. Our main vision in R&D team is to find effective solutions in the glass industry to do the jobs more efficient and to reach the results more effective.


Plant Development

Increasing demand of glass products in Iran and global market is always followed by Kaveh glass R&D team and based on strategic decisions for developing a new plant, plant development teams start their job to find the best location for plant and development phases such as Engineering, Procurement and Construction is done under the supervision of Project Manager.


Product Development
New product design and development is more often than not a crucial factor in the survival of a company. In an industry like glass industry that is fast changing, firms must continually revise their design and range of products. This is necessary due to continuous technology change and development as well as other competitors and the changing preference of customers.

In KAVEH GLASS new product development is a system which is driven by marketing that puts the customer needs first, and only produces goods that are based on customer requirements. The product range is developed so that production processes are as efficient as possible and the products are technically superior, hence possessing a natural advantage in the market place.


New Product Development
Recently in modern architecture the glass role has moved away from its classical meaning and the new role of glass has been changed to an important material in the light and heat balance of buildings. This new advantages of glass is owed not only to new compositions of the glass but also to the various types of coatings applied on glass surfaces. Special laboratories has been established at the Coated Glass Research Center of Kaveh Glass for the tests and studies of various coating properties of Solar Control and Reflective glasses.


More researches are done in our R&D center in different areas including, energy efficient glasses ,Self cleaning glasses ,Improved compositions and colors for tableware, new processes in chemical processes especially soda ash process and new products and processes in petrochemical industries.


To find fast and effective solutions for production problems R&D team utilizes its experience and analytical facilities. The R&D team with about 360 engineers is organized as a research network team both in Kaveh Glass head Office and group factories consisting of PhD,MS/MA ans BS degree holders in all fields such as ceramics, process, chemical, mechanical, piping, electrical and instrumentation engineering.


R&D laboratories are listed as below:


  • Analytical Chemistry
  • Calibration
  • X-Ray Fluorescence
  • Spectrometry
  • Physical Properties
  • Color and Spectrometry


In KAVEH glass group Automation Center the goal is reducing the need for human intervention to eventually minimize the variables and keeping as many as possible variables under control.

Automation is the use of control systems and information technologies. Now In Kaveh Glass Automation center all the architectures of control including local and DCS control system is designed and implemented based on state-of-the-art technologies and from Batch plant control System up to unloading robots at cold end all the automation systems are done by Kaveh Glass Automation Center.


Analytical Chemistry

The analytical instruments of Kaveh Glass are used for both R&D projects and finding the solution of production problems. Chemical analysis consists of not only analyzing raw materials such as Silica Snad,Dolomite, Feldspar and Soda Ash but also analyzing glass products.

chemicals and industrial raw materials can be tested at these analytical laboratories. To achieve accurate and reliable results advanced equipments and globally accepted analytical procedures are used in Kaveh Glass Labs.


The analytical nstruments at the Glass Laboratories are:


  • Atomic Absorption Spectrometry
  • UV visible Spectrophotometry
  • 190nm to 3200nm Spectrometry
  • Flamephotometry
  • Wet Chemical Analyses


Process Design and Realization
Engineering, Procurement and Construction of its own furnaces, Kaveh Glass has a glass production experience of 30 years. To reach to high productivity in glass production Kaveh Glass not only utilizes this experience in the design of new production lines, but also uses experiences of experienced engineers worldwide.

In addition to design furnaces Kaveh glass has achieved to a priceless experience in Hot and Cold repair of small to very huge furnaces. All phases of glass process design, such as evaluating and selecting among existing technology, mathematical modeling studies, selection of equipments and material, batch house systems, detailed design and monitoring of construction are completely performed by Kaveh Glass R&D and engineering department teams.
