English term or phrase: Overflow for ultra thin glass
Por favor, necesito ayuda con el término "overflow". Se trata de un método de producción de cristal ultrafino. Entiendo que no es lo mismo que el método de flotación, pero no he conseguido encontrar en qué consiste exactamente y mucho menos su traducción en español. Gracias a todos.

Sistema por inundaciòn o inmersiòn
Explanation:
In the mid-1960's a team of Corning scientists develops the Fusion Overflow process, in which liquid glass runs down both sides of a tapered trough, rejoins at the bottom and hardens into large, thin, precise sheets of flawless glass. This "overflow glass" is the precursor to Corning's active matrix liquid crystal display (LCD) glass substrates.

Es lo que se me ocurre ya que no puedo encontrar una traducciòn del sistema en espanol.

Overflow downdraw glass forming method and apparatus
Patent No. 6,748,765
Issued: June 15, 2004
Filed: May 9, 2001

Inventors: Pitbladdo; Richard B. (411 W. Lake Rd., Horseheads, NY 14840)


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The disclosure teaches design features that can be used alone or in combination to facilitate faster, more uniform flow of glass through the apparatus and allows the thickness of the sheet to be adjusted. An overflow device is provided at the far end of the trough and is used in conjunction with tilting of the apparatus to expand the range of glass flow rate and glass viscosity for which this invention will produce satisfactory product. The forming apparatus can be made with non-linear weirs and the trough bottom to provide a greater range of flow rates. The glass flow in the inflow pipe can modulated or a contoured trough cross-section used to provide more uniform time dependent flow for forming the sheet. The forming apparatus can include an orifice on top of the trough and glass can be moved through the apparatus using pressure. Additional orifices can be provided on the bottom or sides to allow greater variability in sheet thickness. Irregularities in the thickness of the formed glass sheet may corrected by selective heating of the glass in the trough, heating the weirs or orifice, and selective heating of the glass flowing down the outside of the apparatus. A flow control plug can be inserted into the trough, such that flow dynamics can be altered during hot operation by insertion, removal or position adjustment of the flow control plug.

Puede ser que sea el tradicional "sistema de vidrio flotante" para realizar el Cristal templado carente de las inperfecciones comunes de el vidrio en planchas.

yo se que ese tipo de vidrios es el FLOT, pero no te puedo decir mas por ahora.
