How is the vacuum in a light bulb sealed?

    I understand that one would use a vacuum pump to evacuate a light bulb, but once a vacuum is created, how is the bulb sealed without air coming in?

    The evacuation and the sealing of the bulb's end (by heating in a press) are part of the same step.
