    Life-changing Inventions

    The Ribbon Machine: A Corning invention that revolutionized how lightbulbs were made

    Before the invention of the Ribbon Machine in 1926, every glass encasement for Edison’s electric light bulb was made by hand, one piece at a time, by skilled glassblowers. Seeking to produce more bulbs at a lower cost, Corning invented the Ribbon Machine and instantly revolutionized how light bulbs were made.?
