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, infrared (IR) heating elements are controllable to emit IR radiation at a peak wavelength in the near infrared (NIR) and/or short wave infrared (SWIR) band(s), and the peak wavelength may be varied by adjusting the voltage applied to...
1. A method of making a vacuum insulated glass (VIG) unit comprising an edge seal, the method comprising: inserting a subassembly for a VIG unit including first and second glass substrates with seal material comprising frit therebetween into an apparatus including: a plurality of infrared (IR) heating elements that comprise bulbs controllable to emit IR radiation at a peak wavelength in the near infrared (NIR) and/or short wave infrared (SWIR) band(s), the plurality of IR heating elements being spaced apart from one another so as to have a 2-6″ center-to...
