Certain example embodiments of this invention relate to edge sealing techniques for vacuum insulating glass (VIG) units. More particularly, certain example embodiments relate to techniques for providing localized heating to edge seals of units, and/or unitized ovens for accomplishing the same. In certain example embodiments, a unit is pre-heated to one or more intermediate temperatures, localized heating via at least one substantially two-dimensional array of heat sources is provided proximate to the peripheral edges of the unit so as to melt frits place...
1. A method of making a vacuum insulating glass (VIG) window unit, including an edge seal thereof, the method comprising: providing a unit comprising first and second substantially parallel spaced-apart glass substrates, one or more edge portions of the first and second substrates to be sealed, and a frit provided at least partially between the first and second glass substrates for sealing said one or more edge portions to be sealed;pre-heating the unit in substantially its entirety to at least one intermediate temperature which is below a melting point ...
