Abstract

The above figures show a structure for a glass nozzle which yields excellent center to center spacing of the glass rods. The structure includes a lower substrate in which a plurality of spaced slots are fabricated. Each tube slot is cut wider than the diameter of the tube. The bottom of the slot is angled with a vertical reference surface extending upwardly from the slanted bottom. An upper glass substrate (preferably of planar section) is disposed above the glass rod with a space separating the lower substrate and the upper substrate. A pressure means (not shown) applies a force to the upper substrate. The space between the two substrates allows the upper substrate to push tubes down the incline against the reference edge and lock the tubes into position.

The structure includes a lower substrate in which a plurality of spaced slots are fabricated. Each tube slot is cut wider than the diameter of the tube. The bottom of the slot is angled with a vertical reference surface extending upwardly from the slanted bottom. An upper glass substrate (preferably of planar section) is disposed above the glass rod with a space separating the lower substrate and the upper substrate. A pressure means (not shown) applies a force to the upper substrate. The space between the two substrates allows the upper substrate to push tubes down the incline against the reference edge and lock the tubes into position. The above structure enables accurate placement of the glass tube within the substrate.
