The present work deals with the manufacturing of thin glass flakes with a high aspect ratio. The main aim of this work is to understand the physical processes during the production of glass flakes and their influence on the quality of the final product in order to optimize the entire process and to enable a reproducible manufacturing of glass flakes with a narrowly defined geometrical properties. For this purpose, in addition to the experimental work, the numerical and analytical modeling of the flow of molten glass in the atomizer is used. A purely experimental work proves to be very complicated due to the high number of parameters. In this case, a mathematical modeling should more accurately quantify the influence of the individual parameters on the thickness of the flake and allow a prediction of the thickness, depending on the material or operating parameters. In addition, numerical simulations are used to optimize the thermal management and structural mechanics of the atomizer.
