How to electrically heat up glass really fast

  1. Jan 24, 2012 #1
    Hey guys. What's a way that I could heat up glass to a temperature of about 200-600C without using combustion?

    You could put a resistance and heat it, much like how an air heater works. Also, that temperature range is pretty big, if you really want 600C you would have to resort to other means.
