CRT Funnel Pressing Machine
Japanese television broadcasting began in 1953, in Tokyo by U.S. cathode ray tube (CRT) technology, however, in 1968 the funnel pressing machine was developed by the Nippon Electric Glass Co., Ltd., which revolutionized its manufacturing capacities. Quality and productivity were improved, and Japan-made large-sized TV sets of 24 inches or more dominated the global market by the end of the 1980s. Moulds and pedestals of the set of 1977 have been preserved.
